Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 at Andrews’ Endowed. Here, we believe in learning through doing, having a strong growth mindset and working hard to reach our potential. We believe strongly that the love of learning, having courage in everything we do and respecting ourselves, others and our property are life long attributes. Our teacher is Mr Paine and our teaching assistant is Mrs Pearce. As well teaching in other classes, Mrs Rose will be teaching Year 6 on Wednesday afternoons during Mr Paine’s planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA).

What do our pupils think?

My friends and I have been at Andrew’s Endowed for nearly 7 years now and it has never been dull from Maths to Science – every lesson is fun. The teachers are jolly, kind and always try to be funny, especially if someone cracks a joke. My two favourite lessons are D.T and Art because I am allowed to be so creative! 

Year 6 Pupil

During the 2 nd half term as Year 6, we get to be buddies for the children in our Reception class which we call Acorns. We help them to read, do maths and even help them in how to be good friends.  

Year 6 Pupil

I did not start Andrews’ Endowed from the first year of reception, but our teachers here at Andrews’ have welcomed everybody new or not new. We always have a lot of one to one chats with teachers for good reasons if we need someone to talk to.

Homework in Year 6

Homework in Year 6 is set on a Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. Details of the tasks will be posted on Google Classroom – and the work can be photographed / attached and submitted on this platform too, but homework books are marked on a Tuesday after school.

Although in Year 6 homework is your child’s responsibility (and we encourage them to begin completing parts of it independently ready for secondary school) your child will still need support with their homework – it really does make a difference to their progress!

Weekly Homework expectations in Year 6:

A spelling list is sent home each week and is posted on Google Classroom and stuck in homework books. Please practise these at least twice (or as often as necessary) before they are tested in school each week.

Children should aim to read for at least 15 mins daily – an ideal wind-down activity before sleep and quality time spent with Parents and Carers! Please complete the reading diary each time they read, with the title of the book and the page they have reached. Children also go to the library on a Thursday once a week. These books can also be used to read at home.

English and topic homework is set on Google Classroom (Under the homework section) – and this is also where your child should upload homework documents or photos for marking.

Maths homework will alternate weekly between paper copies of work and tasks set on Mathletics. Worksheets will be given to children in school, and there will be copies of the work and answers on classroom. Please find links to other online resources we use with the children here:
