In May, Year 6 children complete a number of assessment tasks and the results of these will determine whether your child has met the ‘expected’ level in English and maths. For maths, this includes things like simple algebra, missing angles in a range of shapes, and pie charts using percentages. In English, children are expected to understand how to use a full range of punctuation, to write with a wide variety of sentence structures, use powerful vocabulary, and have generally accurate spelling.
Schools spend much of Year 6 ensuring that children are prepared in time, without the children realising and for most children, it is a stress-free time with lots of fun and valuable learning to be had. Whether your child is working towards, at expected or aiming for greater depth, we can help them reach their full potential. Our Year 6 lessons have been carefully planned to revise and consolidate on the learning carried out in school and also to begin to prepare the children for the transition to Year 7.
