Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

This year, both Year 6 classes are named after famous authors.

Elizabeth Laird Class is taught by Miss O'Reilly and Miss Simcock.

Eva Ibbotson Class is taught by Mrs Dunn and Mr Curlett.



It is vitally important that your child reads at home as well as at school.

The expectations are that your child reads AT LEAST 4 times a week at home. Reading books can be handed in on any day to be changed, but they MUST be handed in on a MONDAY, along with their reading records. These books need to have been signed by an adult each time your child has read.

Homework is an extremely important part of your child’s learning and specifically in Year 6, as it prepares them for the expectations of High School.

Homework is given out every Friday and MUST be returned to school NO LATER than the following WEDNESDAY.

The homework will be a Learning Log task based on the termly topic, as well as a piece of work for both Maths and Literacy.

Along with their homework every Friday, children will also be given a list of spellings to learn and a times table sheet to help them practise.

Spellings and times tables will be tested the following WEDNESDAY.

P.E is done on a THURSDAY and FRIDAY for Ibbotson Class and a MONDAY and WEDNESDAY for Laird Class. Please ensure that your child has the correct clothing/footwear for these lessons; remember that P.E lessons are done both indoors and outdoors, therefore suitable outdoor trainers will be required.

We are really enjoying our year so far with Y6 and can't believe that we are into the final phase of the children's journey through primary school. We have so much to look forward in second half of the summer term, including the Y5/6 performance, transition visits to high schools, the leaver's assembly (get the tissues ready) and the infamous teachers V Y6 football match! Mrs Duffy is already in training for her starring role as striker, and she never lets the teachers' side down! 

 As always, please don't hesitate to come in and see us if you have any questions or need any support.  

Miss O'Reilly and Mrs Dunn
