Year Six

 

Mrs G Huddart
Year Six Teacher

 

Welcome to the Year 6 class page. 

I'm Mrs Huddart, the class teacher. 

In Year 6, we have a broad and engaging curriculum, where the children are encouraged to be resilient and independent throughout all challenges.

The teaching in Year 6 is designed to allow children to think constructively and critically about the topics we cover in our curriculum and to ask questions to further their learning and understanding.  The Year 6 curriculum is designed to broaden children’s knowledge and skills across a range of topics and provides them with every opportunity to know and remember more. Please see the curriculum zone for more information.

Class Routines

 

  • We start the day with Maths, where children review their previous learning and complete activities that warm up their brains before engaging with new concepts and problem solving.
  • Following this is our English lessons where we focus on strengthening the understanding of existing and new spellings and further developing reading comprehension skills through a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. We finish our English lesson with Writing, which is focused on a weekly genre that enriches your child’s knowledge and skills for writing with tailored grammar and punctuation input. 
  • Our afternoons consist of Science, History, Geography, Art and Design Technology at the start of the week. And we finish the week with PSHE, RE, French, Music and Computing. 
  • Wednesday is PE day. All children are required to come to school in full PE kit.

Going the extra mile for success

 

All home support is hugely appreciated and makes a positive impact on your child's learning opportunities. Please support your child by ensuring they read at least 5 times a week, with 5-10 pages per night. Please bring diaries/books into school daily and use diaries to communicate with me throughout the week. 

Homework will be set each Friday on Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars. If you prefer paper copies, please let me know.

This year, we are continuing with the 'Walk to School' scheme, where children receive badges for taking part and increasing their fitness. If you have to drive your child to school, they can still achieve an active badge by parking at the shops and walking the remaining distance. 

If you have any questions about your child’s learning, please contact me on gemma.huddart@salford.gov.uk
