At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. The children study a wide range of subjects from maths and English to cookery and forest schools.

Supporting Learning at Home
In year 6 the children are expected to progress towards being an independent learner, but for some homework projects, such as science experiments, parental help is essential.
The children are given an hour of maths and English homework each week, as well as spellings to learn and a reading record to fill in.
We hope the children read widely and for pleasure, to help them the children will always have a reading book borrowed from the class library.
Year Six Expectations
The children in year 6 are assessed in two ways. In all subjects, the children are given a teacher assessment. This happens throughout the year to ensure all children are making progress. The children’s attainment is measured using the bands below. The end of year 6 expectation is 6S.
The Children also take national exams (SATs) in reading; grammar punctuation and spelling; and maths. Teacher assessments for writing and science are also sent to a national agency.
|Exam scaled score||SATs grade|
|80 - 89||Has not met the year 6 standard (HNM)|
|90 - 99||Working towards the year 6 standard (WTS)|
|100 - 114||Working at the expected year 6 standard (EXS)|
|115 - 120||Working at greater depth within the year 6 standard (GDS)|
