Welcome to Year 6!
In Year 6, we ensure that we embrace the school values by being great role models for the rest of the school:
for the STARS!
Show good listening towards everyone
Try our very best
Always look after everyone, everything and our world
Remain kind, gentle and polite
Share and include everyone
Meet the Team
Year 6 are supported in class by:
Miss O'Connor (Class Teacher)
Mrs Groom (Teaching Assistant)
Miss Johnson (Learning Support Assistant)
Year 6 will be a busy, exciting and memorable year. The most important message for the children this year is to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way!
As always, thank you for your ongoing support and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to one of us.
How to help your child at home
The CGP books are excellent resources that you can use at home to prepare your child for SATs. They are available in English, GPS, reading and maths and available on various websites: The UK's Favourite Educational Books | CGP Books
You can also prepare for SATs with these Bitesize 10 minute tests! Free KS2 SATS Online 10-Minute Tests | CGP Books
Please encourage your child to read a range of different genres. The more they read, the better their vocabulary becomes, which also improves their independent writing.

Please help your child to write cursively and neatly whenever they are writing anything.

If work is unfinished within the lesson, then it will be sent home to complete.
The most helpful thing you can do this year is encourage your child to show independence, responsibility and to try their best!
