Year Six 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year Six



We hope that you have all had a safe and rewarding time with your families during the Easter break; we are really looking forward to returning and continuing with our hard work! 

As the oldest children, this is an important year for them and I hope they all enjoy the year and work hard in achieving their potential to become strong independent learners. Remember... practise makes perfect!

This term we are focusing on the Ancient Greeks and the legacy they left behind. There are many interesting facts to discover and learn about and children will be asked to engage in some research projects at home over half-term.

It is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare for life at high school. It will be extremely helpful if you are able to continue to support your child at home by continually monitoring reading and progress with any homework. The children have all been given their access details for Times Tables Rockstars, Numbots, StudyLadder and MyMaths, so please encourage them to use them at home.

Our weekly routine will be...

  • Wednesday- Homework handed in the black tray in the classroom with completed homework tasks. Some homework may be online.
  • Tuesday and Friday- Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (white t-shirts, black/ navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day. 
  • Friday- Reading records will be monitored and children will have a chance to change reading books, if required. Children will also receive their homework on Fridays with tasks to be completed at home.

Please keep your eye on our class page and blog to keep up-to-date with any news or exciting activities that are happening.

As always, if you need anything, please feel free to phone the school or email me directly,

Miss Michael and Miss Fallon
