ALL ABOUT YEAR 6
Our year 6 course is a programme which runs at our local S4E 11+ Tuition centre in Stechford. This includes a weekly 2-hour tuition session, weekly homework and ongoing support and advice. This course will support pupils with preparation for the SATs tests, which occur in May. Our weekly group sessions will focus on Maths, Reading Comprehension and some Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar topics relevant to the current Year 6 curriculum.
After the SATs tests have been completed, this course will focus on Year 7 preparation to help the children be better-prepared for secondary school.
We understand that every child is different so our experienced teachers apply tried and tested teaching methods to lend personalised support exactly where it’s needed.
How a Year 6 session works: A Maths topic is taught each week. Some larger Maths topics, such as ratio and percentages, are taught over a number of weeks. Children will be given weekly Maths homework based on the objectives taught in the lesson, along with any other topics that were taught in class. The other SATs topics, such comprehension and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) are taught on a rotating weekly basis. At the end of each session, parents are given feedback about their child’s progress on each objective, and their focus during the lesson. During the session, children work through the same objectives at a level according to their own ability. If children successfully work through all objectives accurately, a challenge objective is provided. Each session is teacher-led and paper-based, as opposed to computer-based work. After years of classroom and y6 teaching experience, we feel the best learning happens with teacher-led modelling and discussion, followed by independent work.
