Welcome to Year 6
Miss Byott, Miss Foley, Mrs Hughes and Mrs Dean
In Year 6, we value every individual and work as a team. We endeavour to ensure that all children reach their full potential and are provided with opportunities to create life-long memorable experiences. Rest assured that our staff have the well-being of your children at heart and will support and encourage them fully
This year we have a great deal of new learning to undertake, as well as revise all of our previous learning in preparation for our SATs. In Year 6 we ensure all our learning focuses on our school values to ensure our pupils become more determined, resilient, empowered, appreciative and motivated learners. Following the core values will enable them to flourish and give them the skills to be lifelong learners.
Our pupils mature so much during Year 6 and they thoroughly enjoy the added responsibility Year 6 brings. Younger pupils look up to us and we encourage Year 6 pupils to be excellent role models. I would like to thank all parent/carers for your valued support and I am sure this will yet again be another enjoyable and successful year.
Year 6 – Remote Education Activities
Where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain at home, we have the capacity to offer immediate remote education! We understand that there will be implications on parents/carers and children alike – if our school were to close, if a bubble were to be sent home or if your child has to self-isolate. We understand that children may need to share access to technology, parents may be juggling supporting remote learning and working remotely themselves and that many parents may be trying to support children of different ages, from different classes and indeed, different schools. Therefore, we want to be as supportive as possible in this difficult time and provide a clear, effective platform and structure for our whole-school community. All remote education tasks for the pupils will be communicated through our new ‘Remote Learning Activities’ template. When applicable, these will be posted to parents/carers on Class Dojo and uploaded to our school website (below) Enjoy…

Our Whole-School Curriculum Map
We have six school values which permeate all aspects of life at Florence Melly Community Primary. These values are centred round the acronym: DREAMS. Each half-term is allocated to one of these core values and these are explored as a whole-school theme. Weekly themes, under the core values umbrella theme, form the focus for our SMSC lessons and assemblies. For example, during our Safety themed half-term – our children explore themes such as ‘NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe’, ‘Share Aware Online Safety’ and ‘Different Families, Same Love’.

Year 6 – Year Group Specific Curriculum Map
Our curriculum has been carefully built and the learning opportunities and assessment milestones for each year group crafted to ensure progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, knowledge and skills. Subject leaders have developed subject specific characteristics which we expect the children to demonstrate in each discrete subject area. These characteristics underpin all work in these subjects and form a focal point for display areas and provide a common subject specific vocabulary for staff and pupils. We empower our staff to organise their curriculum as they see fit to best suit the needs of the pupils in their care. They are best placed to make these judgements. Staff develop year group specific long-term curriculum maps which identify when the different subjects and topics will be taught across the academic year. The vast majority of subjects are taught discretely but staff make meaningful links across subjects to deepen children’s learning.
