Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

This year your child will be working with Mrs Hughes (Class teacher), Miss Parry (HLTA) & Mrs Thornton (TA). Your child will continue to develop their English and Maths skills as well as studying various topics throughout the year. We have attached our class yearly overview for your information.


PE lessons will be on a Friday so please ensure your child brings their PE kit and appropriate footwear to school on that day. The PE kit consists of a bag that contains pumps/trainers, blue/black shorts or jogging bottoms and a plain white T-shirt that are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Playtime & Snacks

Your child will receive a piece of fruit each day at morning break. If you wish your child to have milk, please order this from the office one half term in advance otherwise only water can be drunk. Toast is available at playtime. This must be pre-paid for using parent Pay each half term.

Entrance to School

Classroom doors open at 8:50am. Pupils in Year 6 will enter through the Main Gate and can be picked up from the classroom door at 3:25pm.  


If you are late to school, please take your child to the school office to register and explain why you are late. You will not be able to accompany your child to the classroom.


Reading and Homework


It is important that your child reads for 20 minutes every night, and their reading record book is completed to show this. We will keep records of the books your child has read in school.



A Maths homework sheet will be sent out every Monday and is expected to be completed and handed in by Friday morning. This homework should not take you child more than 20 minutes to complete and if your child is struggling with the work please see one of the Year 6 team.

Additionally, a weekly times table test will be set on our Purple Mash platform. This again will be set on a Monday and is required to be completed by Friday.

School Uniform

Please remember to label your child’s uniform, especially their jumpers, cardigans and coats. 

School Fund

School fund is 50p per week. Please contribute through Parent Pay each half term. Please remember this as it helps subsidise trips and buy equipment for the children, such as certificates and playtime games.

If you have any questions or worries, then please phone the office and they may be able to answer your concern or make a telephone appointment.  

We hope your children will be very happy in Year 6, and we look forward to working with them. Let’s make this year one to remember!

Mrs Hughes, Miss Parry & Mrs Thornton
