Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Mr Rowntree & Miss Betteridge
Meet the oldest children in our school!
The pupils are an industrious and committed team; we work tremendously hard to ensure the children in Year 6 achieve their full potential in all lessons.
This often means that we cater our curriculum options with a fluid approach to learning.
A big focus for us in Year 6 is further improving our reading and encouraging a love and passion for literature.
We have been doing this through very focused strands. These are:
Below is a PowerPoint presentation which provides a guide for some of these strands of questioning that will help your child. It is a reflection of the questioning that they engage with on a daily basis during their reading lessons.
Please be sure to ask your child all about how this strategy has helped them to fully realise their incredible potential as confident and happy readers!

The word-list for years 5 and 6 is statutory. The lists are a mixture of words pupils frequently use in their writing and those which they often misspell. Some of the listed words may be thought of as quite challenging, but the 100 words in each list can easily be taught within the four years of key stage 2 alongside other words that teachers consider appropriate.
