Welcome to Year 6! 

Our class teacher is Mr Richardson and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Smith. We are also lucky to have Mrs Gawne-Sheridan and Mrs Mullane teaching us for 3 afternoons a week.

In Year 6 we are busy getting ourselves High School ready. We try to make all our learning fun and enjoyable and the children really thrive to improve their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

Children are expected to have rapid recall of all their times tables and learn spellings weekly as well (tests take place weekly on Friday). Maths and Literacy homework will also be sent home on Friday and is expected the following Wednesday. This is a vital aspect of Year 6 as this will become common practice when the children move up to High School. 

Important things to remember:

  • Key Stage Two Tests will take place  between Monday 11th May to Thursday 14th May - do not book any holidays during this week.
  • PE is currently on a Thursday and Friday - please ensure your child has a labelled PE kit in school every day.
  • It is really important that your child reads regularly - they should all read at least three times each week. Discussing the book with your child will develop reading comprehension skills too.
  • Please help your child learn times tables up to 12x12. Hit the Button is a great game to help with this.
  • Have a look at these websites - they'll be really useful for going over key ideas.

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Mr Richardson
