Year 6

Welcome to YR6!

Dear parents(s)/carers(s),

Welcome to Autumn term of Year 6. It's been wonderful welcoming the children into YR6 - they have taken to YR6 really well. The children have taken on important roles, within the school community, including: house captains, worship leaders, librarians and school council members. 

Week to week a few things remain the same within our class. Here is a breakdown of the important things parents/carers need to know on a day to day basis:

  • Year 6 homework will be set on a WednesdayThis all needs to be completed and handed back in on the following Monday. (Please see the ‘Homework Expectations’ on the inside cover of your child’s homework book)
  • For Autumn, PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child(ren) come dressed in their PE uniform on this day.
  • Reading at home is a real passion of ours. We would love all children within Year 6 to read 5 times per week to an adult outside of school. You can document this in the children’s yellow reading records, whereby we will keep a close eye (Monday-Monday) and any children fulfilling this task will be rewarded with a point towards their reading awards. 

The whole team, here in Year 6, are very much enjoying our year helping your child excel and reach their full potential and we continue to welcome any communication from you. As always, we will be available on the playground every day after school, or you can email ( if needed. 

Kindest regards,
Miss Cook, Mrs Ferris, Mrs Barr, Mrs Mustoe and Mrs Thomas. 

As part of our WW2 topic focus for Autumn term, YR6 visited GWSR for a WW2 experience day! The children dressed as evacuees, experienced an air raid, helped put out fires and even took a ride on a steam train - Miss Cook and Mrs Ferris even had to chase a German spy down the platform and arrested him! 
Please enjoy the photos below! 
Working hard!
SATs Week 2024: Monday 13 May to Thursday 16 May 2024
If you are looking for some easy SATs revision to do at home, below are some really quick arithmetic practise tasks, that the children do each day in maths! 
PC Murphy will visit us in school on several occasions.
She will be helping us to understand how to stay safe online!
PC Murphy has kindly shared with us her “Schoolbeat” leaflets based upon the topics of 'Online Relationships', 'Internet Safety' and 'Drugs and Peer Pressure' which we hope will given an overview of the sessions we have been involved in. In addition to this, she has also provided us with an Instagram and other apps guide, detailing how to set privacy and safety settings.
You will also see two videos below, which the children will watch in school, relating to drug awareness and peer pressure.
