Hello and welcome to Year 6!

Firstly we would like to say that we hope you and your family are safe and well.

All the children appear to have settled back into school well and have adapted to our new routines and rules. Thank you to those that joined us virtaully for our Meet The Teacher meeting. For those that were not able to make it or would like to revisit any information the presentation used has been uploaded to this page.

Year 6 is the final year for our children at primary school. It is always a busy year as we prepare for the end of Key Stage SATs and the transition to high school. We will also be working hard this year to cover the Year 5 obectives that were not taught in school, in the usual way. 

To find out what we are learning about this term please look at our Curriculum page where you will find the Year 6 Overview. 

Year 6 is a year of hard work, but also lots fun. We are trying to include as many of the exciting activities, which take place in Year 6, as safely as possible. Some of these include:


A visit from Roberts Bakery 


Exciting science experiments 

Day trips where possible and lots more


This year, homework will be set every Wednesday. The children will be set or each week alternatively. They are expected to read 3 - 5 times a week and to take part in regular times table practise using Times Table Rock Stars. In addition to this the children will be set a fluency worksheet, where the children will answer a variety of questions around a given number. Each week the questions will stay the same but the number given will change. 

Children may also be given extra Maths, English or spelling homework to reinforce their learning as decided by their teacher. This will also be set on a Wednesday and is due back in school the following Wednesday.


Mr Cairns teaches PE on a Wednesday afternoon. The children also have an additional PE lesson on a Monday delivered by their class teacher. Please see the curriculum map for the year's sports. Both classes will take part in Bikeability sessions in the Autumn term.

Mrs Gatiss will also teach Spanish on a Wednesday 

Water bottles

We encourage children to bring a water bottle each day, please ensure it is only water.These bottles should be taken home each day to be washed. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the Year 6 team at If you require an immediate response please contact the office as this address is not checked during teaching hours.

We have enjoyed getting to know your children in these first few weeks and are certain this is going to be a great year!
