Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6, the final chapter of education at Hill View Junior Academy where the staff are ready for another year of learning and fun. The Year is filled with exciting opportunities and rewarding experiences all of which will allow the children to build happy and fond memories of their last year of primary school. From residential visits to Derwent Hill; sporting competitions and tournaments; to the challenges of SATs, this year will have something for everyone.
Year 6 are split across four register classes and are taught in maths and English sets on a morning. Many children experience being taught by several members of staff; a great step on the transition towards secondary school.
Teachers set homework weekly which is given on a Thursday and expected to be brought back in by Tuesday of the following week. Spellings are set on Monday and tested on Friday. We expect reading books in school everyday and to be changed once a week. We would appreciate your support in signing your child’s reading diary on a regular basis.
In Year 6 we expect the children to work hard, but in return they will be rewarded with skills for life, lasting friendships and the independence they will need to thrive on the next chapter of their learning journey.

What have we been up to?
Derwent Hill 2017 - In September, Year 6 had a fabulous time visiting Derwent Hill, where as you can see, they enjoyed a range of outdoor activities.
Some of our year 6 pupils have been working with the community group Blue Watch to raise the profile of the dangers of parking close to schools. They entered a competition and won! Blue watch donated £100 to spend on equipment for the school. The group chose to buy a new picnic bench for the garden and some new fish for the fish tank in the library. This is one of the posters created by Reece Bates class 6ES..
