Welcome to Year 6


This term's topic is "Out of this World"


New spellings will be taught on a Monday, where a 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' sheet will be given out for children to practice these new spellings at home. During the rest of the week, children will be given a variety of activities based around these spellings to help embed the new pattern or rule. Instead of a weekly spelling test, children will be assessed on the spellings they have learnt so far at the end of each half-term, with this including 3-4 words from each week. All children now have their own login details, which have been sent home, to access and should be using this website to help improve their spelling knowledge several times a week for 15 minutes.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask either Mrs McCarthy or Mrs Davies


The children will have PE on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child comes into school on Tuesday with their PE Kit on. School policy is the red T-Shirt with school logo, black shorts or track suit bottoms and the red hooded jumper with school logo.


In addition to reading, spellings and time  table rockstars, children will recieve homework on the class page on a Monday and a Friday to be completed for the following Monday and Friday. Mrs McCarthy will give Maths homework each Monday and Mrs Wakefield will give English each Friday. 

PLEASE NOTE: much of the homework this year will take the form of practice papers in readiness for end of year SATS. 


As you are probably aware, the children will be sitting their end of primary school SATs tests in May. We will be holding an information evening later on in the term. Watch this space for details.. 

We ask that parents do not access online past papers to administer to your child at home - we will be using all of them in school to aid our own in house assessment and check for gaps in learning. If the children have already seen them, it causes us problems! 

In the meantime, please feel free to access the information leaflet in the 'Files to Download' section below.

We look forward to the year ahead...

Mrs Davies, Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Richards
