Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Year 6 staff:

Ms C Hadland: Class Teacher

Miss M Palmer: Teaching Assistant (Monday to Thursday)

Mrs E Jones: Learning Support Assistant (Friday)


As each pupil progresses through their school-life growing demands are placed upon them along that journey. This year will require a greater degree of independence, responsibility, organisation and perseverance as the expectations for Year 6 continue to grow. Year 6 bridges the gap between Primary School and Secondary School. As pupils progress, thrive and mature there is a greater emphasis to demonstrate initiative, motivation and self-awareness. Let the journey begin!


Homework will routinely include the basics of weekly spellings, times-tables and reading. Frequent practising is better than 1 longer session the day before it is due to be handed in!


Homework will usually be given on a Monday and will need to be handed in the following Monday. This allows for pupils who are busy on some weekdays to also have the weekend to complete tasks, and pupils who have hectic weekends have the 5 weekdays. This accommodates all eventualities.


PE will usually be on a Monday afternoon with me – this term it is netball, and then again on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Clarke. Please make sure a full PE kit comes in to school on Monday and remains in school until Friday as there are times when additional, unexpected, sporting events are arranged at short notice - it would be a shame if your child missed out.
