Welcome to Year 6
Here are our curriculum maps for 2018/19:
We use our CLIC values to help us to learn to the best of our ability. We believe that every child has the right-
C– to be a confident communicator
L– to learn
I– to improve their health
C– to be part of a community
At Netley Abbey Junior School, these ideas underpin all of our learning. With this in mind, please take some time to see what we have been up to in class.
If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please feel free to talk to our class teachers in the first instance who should be able to answer any queries. After talking to the class teacher, if there are any further enquires, they can be directed toward our head teacher.
Year 6 have enjoyed getting stuck into their first book of the year: The Arrival by Shaun Tan. This wordless picture book follows the journey of a man leaving his country to seek refuge, and explores the thoughts and feelings of these characters. The children have worked hard to show empathy through their writing, and have explored how to change vocabulary to have different ‘shades of meaning’. We look forward to sharing some of our wonderful work with you!

Miss Blundell —- Beach

We would like children to have their PE kit in school every day, however, we understand that they do need washing!
Our PE days are-
Heath: Monday and Thursday
Beach: Monday and Wednesday
Wykeham: Tuesday and Friday
Homework is always given out on a Friday and hand-in day is Wednesday.
All children will receive spellings, English/SPaG and maths homework each week. We would encourage times table learning and lots of reading too. Ask questions about what books your child is reading; about the characters and what they think might happen next, based on what they have read. Reading aloud to an adult will help fluency and understanding.

Many parents have asked if we can recommend age-appropriate challenging texts for their child.
Below are links to two book lists of ‘recommended reads’ which are suitable for Year 6 Readers and for More Able Readers:
