Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!




Taught by Mrs James and Mrs Corfield 


We would like to say hello and welcome to our Year 6 class. We are really looking forward to teaching each and every one of your children. This year is going to be an exciting year for all concerned. It is an important year with the children sitting their year 6 SATs. 


 The children will be taught by both of us during the week.

Mrs James: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning

Mrs Corfield: Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.


We have an open door policy and are happy to meet with parents before or after school by arranging with us beforehand. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


This year is full of exciting and engaging topics with lots of trips and learning outside of the classroom. We are sure your children are going to love it!


This term our PE sessions will be on Tuesday, they will be a mix of dance and outdoor games. Children will need to ensure that they have a full PE kit in school each week. On a Thursday year 6 will be attending swimming lessons, a further detailed letter has come home regarding this.


Homework, reading and spellings.


Your child will receive homework and spellings each week. These will come home on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. All homework will consolidate learning that we have been completing in class, whilst also looking at SATs examples.


Spellings will come home with homework and children will be tested on their spellings each week. They will also receive their full list of common exception words for year 6.


All children will have an individual reading book; We encourage children to read as much as they can at home. They can also still read to an adult and discuss what they have read,
