Together we achieve

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


The staff in Year 6 are Mrs Andrew, Mrs Taylor, Mrs Iusan, Mrs Pickering and Mr Bell.

Mr Bell teaches in our class one afternoon per week.


This term, our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday.

Please ensure that your child comes to school in their school uniform on these days and has their P.E. kit in school. 

For this term, we will be swimming on a Thursday afternoon. However, only some of the children will be swimming. Those not swimming, will stay in school for a P.E lesson with Premier Sports. You would have been informed which group your child is in.


Homework will be given out on a Friday and will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. It will comprise of a piece of SPaG and a maths task. Weekly spellings are also given out to practise for a Friday test. Children are also given a list of practical learning that surrounds their theme that they can choose from weekly to complete. 


Please can we ask that children are reading daily and completing their reading record. We cannot stress how important reading is and how essential it is for their future successes. Children will have two books to read. Pupils will have an Accelerated Reader book which is at their current reading level. As well as this, every child will have a Reading for Pleasure book. This is a book chosen by the child to read for fun. If child needs some support reading this book, read it together for enjoyment.


If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitant to speak to us before or after school.
