Year 6


Hi and welcome to Year 6

Our team consists of four experienced Year 6 teachers: Mr King, Mrs Moore, Mrs Henderson and Miss Campbell. We are supported by Mrs Waddington (HLTA), Mrs White (TA), Miss Swift (TA) and Mr Rhodes (Intervention teacher)

As you are aware Year 6 is an important year for our pupils as they prepare to sit their SATs and transition to high school. The Year 6 team strives to help our pupils to achieve their full potential and give them the best possible start for high school. We expect the pupils to be motivated towards learning and try their very best. We are grateful for the support of parents/carers and are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Homework expectations

Each week we expect each child to complete the following activities: 

  • Reading: 15 minutes per day either on Bug Club (web based reading) or reading a fiction book.

  • Spellings are given out weekly on google classroom and class dojo. The children are given a baseline test on a Monday so they know which spellings they need to focus on. They are tested again on a Friday with all the children keen to beat their previous score.

  • Maths: Children can independently access Times Tables Rockstars at home to improve their rapid recall of multiplication tables and corresponding division facts.

  • From time to time we will set extra homework linked to our class topics. Children will be informed about this and instructions given on class dojo and google classroom
