Year 6

In September 2014, big changes were made to the National Curriculum. English, Maths and Science remain very important and are considered the core subjects in primary education. The National Curriculum sets out in detail what must be taught in each of these subjects, and they will take up a substantial part of your child’s learning week. Alongside these are familiar foundation subjects: Art, Computing, Design & Technology, Foreign Languages, Geography, History, Music, and Physical Education. Schools now have more flexibility regarding the content they cover in these areas.

At the end of Year 6, compulsory national assessments, informally known as ‘SATs’, must be taken by all children. Pupils will undertake tests in Reading, Mathematics, and Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling. Writing will be based on Teacher Assessments taken from a variety of writing genres across Year 6. Results will be reported to parents at the end of the year.
