For any information regarding the Year 6 curriculum, please visit the curriculum tab of our website. This will show you all our sequences of learning for every subject, including reading, writing and maths,  from EYFS to Year 6.

At the bottom of this page you will also find our long term plan, which shows the foundation subjects we cover in Year 1. 


End of Year Expectations

Learn about the skills and knowledge that we hope your child will develop in literacy and maths by the end of this year. If they achieve these goals, they will be 'working at age-related expectations'.

The Phonics Screening Check shows how well your child can use the phonics skills they’ve learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help. The Department for Education defines the checks as “short, light-touch assessments”.

The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that your child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything – your child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them.

The Phonics Screening Check takes place in June.

Homework will be set on Seesaw on Friday. This will be maths based and due back in on the following Wednesday, to be marked online. Spellings will be set on Seesaw on Tuesday for a test on the following Monday.
On Friday your child will also receive a link to an e-reader, on Seesaw, through Oxford Owl.

Reading is a priority at StChrysostom's. All our children must read their reading book at least 3 times a week and parents are expected to sign their reading record. Each term we have a reading workshop to support you reading at home with your child. If you need any further support with this, please contact your class teacher and they will be happy to assist. 


It's 'Good to be Green'

The ‘Good to be Green scheme is an effective way of promoting positive behaviour, rewarding those pupils who consistently behave appropriately, and is a means of being able to track those pupils who find it harder to meet the school’s expected behaviour.

The scheme is very visual, with child friendly resources which allow our pupils to easily see how they are doing in class. We believe that it is important to promote a positive message regarding behaviour management at all times- ‘Good to be Green’ is a means of promoting our high expectations of positive behaviour. If a child has not had a good day, they can start afresh the following day.
