Dear parents and carers,

It is fantastic to all be back in school together. and we are very excited for the year ahead. Year 6 is a great year where we work hard, have high expectations but also have lots of fun. 

Please make sure that your child has a water bottle in class - ideally a bottle with a sport’s lid to avoid spills. 


Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Please make sure PE kits have all the clothing and trainers necessary. 

 PE kit should be in school at all times.

Indoor kit: white t-shirt, blue shorts, socks and black pumps.

Outdoor kit: a plain blue tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.


Homework is a vital part of year 6 as it allows the children to practise and consolidate the skills learned in Maths and English. Homework will be given pn a Tuesday and is to be back in school, signed by an adult,  the following Friday. 

Homework will be uploaded onto Google Classroom each week. The children will then complete their homework, showing their working out as needed, by hand in their homework books and bring it into class on Friday.

We will mark the work in their books in class together. Booster classes are available for every child, at dinnertime with a teacher, if there is something they have found tricky. Please encourage your child to ask for one if needed. 

Spellings will be given weekly and there will be a quiz on Purple Mash to complete. There will be a weekly spelling test in class.  The spelling rules are  from the National Curriculum and Statutory year 5/6 spelling list. 

Home reading books will be given to the children weekly. They must be signed and returned to school each week. 


Should you have any further questions or queries please do not hesitate to see us or speak with the office.

Thank you for your support; it is as always appreciated.
