End of Year Expectations - Year 6

 

All the following objectives will be worked on throughout the year and form the focus of direct teaching. The spoken language continues to be a strong thread running through our entire curriculum. Any extra support you can provide in helping your children to achieve these objectives is greatly valued. From reading 5 times a week to discussing a film that you have watched together – it all helps!

 

If you have any queries regarding this information or want support in knowing how best to help your child, please talk to your child’s teacher.
