Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!
 
The School day
 
Following well-being and reading activities as the children come in, each class begin the school day with a English lesson.  this will include: reading, writing, speaking and listening skills  which are planned to complement topical learning. Each lesson begins with a focused grammar, spelling or punctuation starter which will support the main lesson's focus. Some genres taught in the Year 5 curriculum include persuasive writing, adventure stories, letters and diaries, newspaper reports, explanation- and information texts.  
 
After break time pupils will develop their numeracy skills. These maths lessons are planned and delivered to develop reasoning and problem-solving skills in addition to numerical literacy using carefully selected concrete resources to support learning.  
 
Topic lessons usually take place in the afternoons and incorporate different subjects through one shared theme. Our topics throughout the year are: Natural Disasters, Battle for Life and Tudor Exploration. 
 
Our PE lessons take place on Wednesday afternoons and encourage development of physical skills. Children must come in to school wearing their P.E kit on a Wednesday.
 
We use a system called Target Tracker to help monitor the progress children make at Lent Rise School. The documents below show a series of 'I can' statements that explain the different things children should achieve to be at the Age Related Expectation at the end of their Year band.
