Who’s Who?

In Year 6 you will be taught by Mr. Kingsley, with daily support from Ms. Blair and Miss Quershi.

The Curriculum

At Mersey Vale, we are proud to follow a curriculum personalised to our learners linked to the National Curriculum. The Year 6 Maths is linked to the White Rose Maths scheme and the English is linked to the Literacy Tree Curriculum. To enrich the curriculum we use a range of online resources, such as Learning By Question.More information can be found using the link below. Throughout the year we have many exciting opportunities to enrich our learning with theme weeks. Some children in Year 6 receive additional small group or one-to-one support from the class teacher or teaching assistants to consolidate their learning, especially when undertaking Maths and English.

Common Exception Words for Years 5 and 6

There are lots of key words children need to be able to spell by the end of Year Six in addition to spelling rules and patterns they are learning. Each week children will be set spellings to learn and these will be posted on the Class Dojo page.
