Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page
Welcome to Year 6! We hope that the children have had a good rest and are ready for the busy year ahead. During our first few weeks we will focus on settling the children back into school and ensuring that they have the skills and knowledge required to be successful in Year 6.
Year 6 Team

Mrs McPherson and Mrs Bowden will support the children in class as well as run afternoon booster groups
Working with us
We strongly believe that education is a shared partnership with school and home. We encourage parents to become fully involved in their children’s learning and also in the life of the school. We very much hope that you will feel part of our school community and you will be able to approach your class teacher if you have any concerns, problems or questions.
The Year 6 team are keen to work with you to support your children and we encourage parents to speak with us regularly. Please feel free to discuss any issues with us at the end of the day. Each child has a home school book where messages can be written.
Please ensure that your child have a named water bottle in school each day that it is filled with fresh water. A reminder that juice and squash are not allowed in class.
Please ensure all of your child’s clothing is labelled. All named clothing is returned instantly, whereas everything unnamed goes to lost property.
Please do not send your child to school with a pencil case. We provide all the necessary equipment as we do not have large enough trays for pencil cases. If your child is writing in pen, we will provide them with a handwriting pen which will be replaced when the old one runs out.
PE and Jewellery:
Long hair must be tied up. If ear-rings are worn they should be taken out for PE. If they are newly pierced please provide tape to cover the ear-rings until such a time as they can be removed. Only studs should be worn.
The only other item of jewellery permitted in school is a wrist watch. This also needs to be removed for PE.
Our P.E. days this year are Tuesday and Wednesday. Children will need to wear their P.E. kit to and home from school on this day. They can wear tracksuit bottoms/leggings and their school jumper over their kit on colder days.
-Plain light blue polo shirt (with no visible logos).
-Black or navy shorts for PE.
