Year 6


Welcome to Year 6. 

Please follow our school Facebook page to see any photographs of your child's learning.


In Y6, the teachers this year will be Mrs. McGonnell and Miss. Spence. We will be supported by Miss. Tumelty, Mrs. Swirles and Mr. Carter.



Pupils will be issued with a book from the school reading scheme and an accelerated reader book. The children can change their books as they need to, but there must be a signature from an adult in their home reading record book at least three times a week to confirm they are reading regularly.



Homework will be given out every Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday. It will consist of one piece of English and one piece of Maths. 



This autumn term, our focus in history will be World War Two. In science this half term, we will be learning about electricity. After the October holidays, we will be learning about evolution in science. 



PE sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon with Mr. Carter. The children will need their school indoor PE kit (blue t-shirt and shorts) and additional kit for use outdoors on these days. It will be necessary to have warmer clothing as the weather deteriorates.
