Learning Together, Growing Stronger.

Year 6


Welcome back Year 6!


We are so excited to have you back in school and to begin our exciting year together in Year 6, packed with learning, fun and opportunities to shine. We have already planned some wonderful lessons and visits including a residential to Herd Farm in June. smiley


School times for Year 6 will be 8.50am and ends at 3.10pm. At both of these times, you will line up in classes in the Year 5/6 playground and wait to be collected by your teacher in the morning, or an adult in the afternoon.


Monday and Thursday are your days for PE. Please wear your kit to school (white top and black bottoms).



Meet our wonderful Year 6 team.

Home Learning


In Year 6, one of our tasks is to get you ready for secondary school and the first thing we do is give you your very own Homework Diary. You need to bring this to school every single day because you will use this to write down the homework set and when it is due in. Homework will be set every day: sometimes a simple task like 'read your reading book' and other times a project or grammar tasks.

Whilst most of the children in Year 6 are fluent readers, it is still so important that your child is listened to reading out loud. This will allow you to ask questions to check your child's understanding of the text. We work hard to enhance our 'VIPERS' reading skills: click here for VIPERS questions you can use at home.
