To Be The Best That We Can Be

Year 6

Welcome to Year Six

Teachers in Year Six are:

Mrs Holloway and Miss Marshall in the Meneske room



Mr Preston and Mrs Dossett in the Violet room.




Our PE days are:  Monday and Wednesday. Children should bring in their PE kit on a Monday and be taken home on a Friday. PE kit includes: a white T-shirt, black or navy shorts or joggers, a dark coloured jogging top and trainers.


Homework: Our daily homework is to read at home and practise our times tables. We will send out Homework using MyMaths (Home - MyMaths) online for their maths homework and either a grammar or reading task.   The task will be linked as far as possible to that weeks learning. Children will review the answers to their homework in school with their teachers so please ensure these are returned on time. Homework is handed out on a Friday and needs to back in school by the following Friday.


Reading: As part of our homework, we expect children to read daily at home. 


Spellings: We will send out new spellings every Monday in the children's planners. These spellings will be tested the following Monday.
