Lincewood Primary School

Year 6 Key Information


P.E. Days

Indoor - Wednesday                            Outdoor - Friday

All children in KS1 and KS2 also have swimming lessons in our pool every Autumn and Summer Term. This lesson replaces one of the P.E. lessons that week.

Details of what children need for their kit can be found on our school uniform section.


Homework Expectations

Homework is set on a Friday.

Homework is expected to be completed by the following Thursday.

Each week, children are expected to complete a piece of Maths (including times tables) and English homework (including SPaG), as well as their choice of topic-related task each week. We encourage you to read with your child as regularly as possible, recording this in your child's Reading Record.

There is an expectation that homework is done each week, however children are able to choose from the topic-related tasks in order to gain the necessary points for a certificate, and can complete their work in their 'Busy Books', or online using Teams.

Key Assessments

Year 6 SATs -

At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:

  • Reading
  • Maths
  • Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG)

The key stage 2 tests are timetabled from Monday 9th May - Thursday 12th May 2022.

These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure your child's progress and the school's performance.

How can I help my child prepare for SATs?

Please do not practice old SATs test papers. We will use these in school to prepare the children and to assess their understanding. If the children have already done these at home, we will not get an accurate picture of their ability and may not be able to support them appropriately in school.

Your child's teacher will be preparing homework centered around SATs revision and preparation. Please ensure your child completes what their teacher sets each week and go through it with them to help them understand any misconceptions.

There are also plenty of SATs revision texts to purchase - speak to your child's teacher if you want advice on which one would suit your child the best.

You can also find more information on SATs Revision, using this guide for parents.
