And you are VERY welcome! Please feel free to come along and spend some time in our Year 6 classroom. Why not come to see what a maths lesson is like, or a writing lesson? It's a good idea to call the school first to check that we are doing a relevant lesson when you are available but, as a general rule, we follow the Year 6 timetable as given in the Year 6 information folder below. We look forward to seeing you...

I will aim to reply to parent emails the same day.
Some parents have asked me which KS2 SATs revision guides we recommend. I have added an image below of the Achieve 100 books we have used before. They are very good but other companies produce similar things. Most pupils should aim for the Achieve 100 in maths, reading and grammar and punctuation. A few pupils will need the harder versions which are called Achieve 100+. Please check with me which you need before buying. Email me on Deputy@st-johns-wetleyrocks.staafs sch.uk
Please don't let your child start revising too early. They should be like finely tuned athletes who peak at just the right time.
NUMERACY - Shape enquiry.
Year 6 used these shape cards to produce a range of different shapes and patterns. During their discussions with their partners, they were able to use a huge amount of shape vocabulary and expand their knowledge of 2D shapes and their features. Well done Year 6.
Year 6 took part in the first of our Skip2bfit challenges today, and they all loved it. The challenge is to improve the amount of skips each child can do in 2 minutes over the next six weeks. Our highest scorer this time was Lewis with a remarkable 218 skips! Well done everybody.
Take a look at this excellent artwork by budding Year 6 artist, Gabriel. Well done Gabe.
