Year 6 is such an exciting year, and we do try to do lots of fun and exciting things as well as lots of HARD WORK! The focus is getting you ready for secondary school and for you to leave Cranford Primary School well equipped and more independent, ready for the challenges ahead. 

 

Try your best and everything else falls into place.

SATs!

The children have now completed their SATs.  A big well done to all children for their hard work throughout the year. 

 

This week, the children have been learning about road safety and they were lucky enough to watch a performance delivered by 'Be Bright, Travel Right'.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the show and learnt a lot from it.

Some children in Year 6 said this about the show:

 

"The actors were really humorous and the learning was made fun"

"The show was outstanding!"

"We were able to contribute, which made the show even better.

IMPORTANT - SATs

 

Throughout the year, the children have been working very hard towards their final end of KS2 assessments (SATs).  These assessment commence on 14th May 2018 and therefore, the next few weeks are very important for all children.

 

Children will still receive daily homework which will be marked the following day in class.  We appreciate parent support with this and it also enables children to identify any areas of the curriculum that they may still be struggling with.

 

SATs' Breakfast

During the week of SATs, we will be offering breakfast to all children in Year 6.  We encourage them to join us for breakfast in the hall to help ease any worries they may have of the day ahead.  Breakfast will start at 8.20am (children must not arrive any earlier than this time).

Curriculum Overview for Year 6 (2017/2018)

Important information regarding SATs:

 

•During this year, children in Year 6 will take their SATs papers based on the new 2014 NC. These tests in English and Maths will reflect the new national curriculum, and are intended to be more rigorous. There will also be a completely new marking scheme to replace the existing national curriculum levels.
These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to Ofsted and published league tables). A child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.
The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children will be given scaled scores. Parents will be given their child’s raw score (the actual number of marks they get), alongside their scaled score and whether they have reached the national average. The score needed to reach the national average is around a 100 mark, however we are unable to say how many marks the children will need to achieve (in their raw score) to get the 100 mark. With this being said, we are unsure what the national average will look like, however we have robust testing strategies in place to help your child reach their full potential. As you know from parents evenings, currently we are able to tell you whether your child is on track to being age expected rather than a level or a score.
There is no longer an extension paper (Level 6 paper), all children will be sitting the same paper.

 

Please be rest assured the children and staff are working collaboratively in the run up to SATs. We are extremely proud of the determination and effort our children are showing!

European Fairs - December 2017

 

This week, the children in Year 6 enjoyed presenting their European travel fairs to other children in the year group.  Over the weeks prior to the event, the children carried out some research about their chosen country: Germany, Belgium, Spain, Russia to name a few.  Children displayed their research and information in many different ways: informative posters; landscape artwork; mathematical problems relating to currency; Powerpoint presentations and more.  Some groups even brought in food which was linked to their country.  All children enjoyed the event and were able to learn a lot along the way.
