Welcome to Year 6! This stage marks the end of Key Stage 2 as your child prepares to move to secondary school. Here you can find home learning and other important information including what we will be learning throughout the year. Please visit us regularly to follow our learning journey. At the beginning of the year, we prepared a transition document to help you to find out more about Year 6 - please click here to view this.
Year 6 has two classes – 6R is taught by Miss Morris and 6N is taught by Mr Nash. Mrs Rayner also helps support both classes in English and Maths.
Please make us aware of any concerns you may have regarding your child’s homework, behaviour or learning. How to contact your child’s teacher:
- Write a note in your child’s home/school journal. Please remind your child to show the note to their teacher
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Year 6 have PE on a Wednesday and Friday.
At present, children should come to school wearing their PE kit on those days. They should have a spare pair of shoes to wear on a Friday if their trainers get wet or muddy.
Children in Year 6 are expected to read for 20 minutes every evening. Children have free access to the book corner at school or can read books from home if they prefer. Staff monitor the children’s reading in the reading journal throughout the week. Click here to view a suggested reading list for children in Year 5 and 6.
Reading - It is important to hear your child read regularly. When you are listening to your child, remember to ask them questions about the text and ask them to give evidence to support their answers.
Spelling - On Mondays, your child will have a new set of spellings to learn. They are tested on these on a Friday and also on the following Monday. Their tests are recorded in the spelling section of the homework diary.
Maths - Year 6 receive their Maths homework on a Tuesday and it is due in on a Friday. The homework always links to the topics we have just covered in class or the topics that we are currently studying. If the children are unsure on any aspect of the homework they can bring it in to discuss with us in class.
Grammar – On Thursdays, your child will receive their Grammar homework and it is due in on a Tuesday. The homework tends to look at the work that we have been studying during our Grammar lessons in class.
