Welcome back, Year 6!


We're really looking forward to getting back into it with our autumn term work. A lot of our English and History work centres around discrimination and equality, which is a really interesting topic, especially at the current time. And I know we are all going to work really hard to catch up on anything we missed last year. Most of all, it will be great to see the whole class back together. Our topic overview for the year is on this page.

Things might feel a little different at times due to COVID-19. We will have to stay in the same places in the classroom rather than move around so much, and we won't be able to contact other year groups. That means, at least for now, that some of our normal Y6 jobs and responsibilities won't be able to happen straight away. Our PGL trip has been postponed from October to March. 

We have a number of different staff members working in Year 6 this term. Mr Weston teaches most mornings and Monday & Wednesday afternoons. Mrs Hurley and our new learning assistant Mrs Power will be in class during the mornings. Ms Holmes (the former Mrs Johnson) will be in class during the afternoons. Mrs Garton-Pope will teach Science on Wednesday mornings, Mr Hodgkinson will be in for PE on Friday afternoons, and Mrs Evans will teach other afternoon sessions on Tuesday, Thursday & Friday.

Here is some key information for the start of the autumn term.


Children are to come to school in their PE kits on the days they have PE. For Year 6, this is Tuesday and Friday each week.

Spellings & Homework

Homework is given out each Friday. Spellings are given out every fortnight for children to learn, and they are tested on a Friday one week after the homework is given out. A link to our spelling lists is on this page. Each week, we will also set English and Maths homework, which is due on the following Tuesday. In Year 6, we take some time to go through homework together to ensure children's understanding. We will hopefully be purchasing special revision homework books for the children shortly, which worked well last year. Finally, there is a half-termly homework task, due on the Monday 19th October, which will be shared with the class and displayed in school. A link to this task is also on this page.

Start and Finish Times

In Year 6, we start our school day at 8:45 and we finish at 3:00.

Back to School/SATS/PGL Meeting

Obviously, this meeting that normally takes place at the beginning of the autumn term cannot currently take place. A back to school information presentation will appear on this page in the coming days. SATS and PGL info will follow later in the term.

Finally, don't forget to follow our Twitter feed and check back on this class page to see what our Year 6 children are up to through the term!
