Year 6

                                                    Welcome to Year 6 

 

 

A very big welcome to our wonderful children and families. Year 6 is set to be a fantastic year! The staff team will be focusing on the well-being of our children after such an unusual time and will be taking a positive and structured approach to ensuring children achieve academically. 

The Year 6 Team includes Mrs Parry, Mrs Carew and Mrs Moore. We are also supported by the wonderful Mrs Fisher and Mrs Woods. 

Please check this page on a regular basis for key information, photographs and samples of what we have been learning! 

 

PE – Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Children must wear their PE kit to school on these days as explained in Mrs Mason’s letter. This includes a black hoodie, black joggers/ shorts and our yellow school polo shirt. 

 

Homework – There have been some changes to how we will be setting homework this year. It will now be uploaded here every Wednesday and should be completed by the following Tuesday.
