Dear Parents

Here we are in the Summer Term already!

The following is a brief outline of the area of study your child will be covering this term. As Year 6 this is clearly an important time as they prepare for the SATs and their transition to secondary school in September. We shall endeavor to make this time as productive, interesting and fun as we can!  

SATs week is the second week in May and it is important that your child is present at this time if at all possible. If there is anything that you feel you need more information or help with please e-mail me or call into school.

We have our Summer Production to look forward to as well as the residential trip to Barcaple in June and Sports Week - an action packed ending to your child's time at St Bees Village Primary!

Negative numbers and problem solving. Addition and subtraction of decimals and money. Multiplication and division. Calculating with fractions. Reflections and translations on coordinate axes. Perimeter, area and volume. Multiplying and dividing decimals. Solving problems with percentages, fractions and decimals. Simple formula. Measurements. Pie Charts and line graphs.
