I’m Miss Saville and I’m the Year 6 class teacher. This is my fourth year as part of the Silkmore family and I love to be creative with our curriculum and make exciting lessons for my children. I strive to have and maintain a happy classroom where children feel confident, empowered and important.
When I’m not at work, I love being creative. I love to crochet and use this skill to raise money for charity. I also love to read and spend time with my puppy, Bella.
I’m Mrs Arrieta and I’m one of the Year 6 learning support teachers. I strive to ensure that the children are receiving the support that they need during the day but also with anything else that may worry them.
When I am not at school, I am very active. I like running, water sports and I absolutely love escape rooms. Since I was little, I had a special attraction towards mathematics. Maths gives me a lot of satisfaction and boosts my energy and thinking capacity.
Meet the teachers
We believe Year 6 is the year children start to become truly independent learners, readying themselves for the world of high school and finding their feet in terms of who they want to be and how they are going to work to get there.
What We Teach
The content of the National Curriculum is taught through 15 exciting Mini Missions across the year. These Mini Missions allow the children to become authors during ‘Leon and the Place Between’ to become detectives, investigating a robbery during ‘Burglar Break-in’.
One of the sparkles of Silkmore is the unknown nature of the upcoming Mini Missions and the way they are brought to life to hook and engage every pupil. Therefore, we don’t like to publish the names and content of the upcoming Mini Missions. However, if you would like further information about our curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
In Maths we follow the White Rose planning and content. This is supplemented by weekly ‘Flashback’ sessions which allow pupils to re-visit previously taught content.
In Year 6, children are prepared for the end of KS2 assessments (SATS tests), which take place in May. There will be additional catch-up interventions as well as lots of supplementary work to ensure that the COVID gap doesn’t become an obstacle for our children. Regular practice will become second nature to the children - unbeknown to them - during lessons and extra after school clubs will be taking place after the Christmas holidays.
Our classroom learning is complemented by weekly PE sessions, Forest School sessions, AIM HIGH lessons and Commando Joes team building.
How you can help your child
If your child is in Year 6 you can support their learning by:
Practising their weekly spellings.
Practising all the times tables to help children develop instant recall of all facts up to 12x12.
Reading every day.
Giving them opportunities to be independent at home.
Allowing children to practise basic ICT skills such as typing, editing and presenting work
Supporting your child to access their home learning sites: Timestable Rock stars, Maths Seeds, Oxford Reading Buddy and Lexia.
Completing work set on a Friday and making sure your child brings this back to school.
If you’d like any further information about Year 6, please contact the school.
