Year 6

Welcome to Year 6. We hope this page is helpful in setting out a few events, dates and costings you can expect whilst your child is in Year 6.  Hopefully having notice of these dates, will ensure you are able to clear your diary and book time off work if needed, as it would be lovely if all of our parents and carers could attend all of these events.

Over the summer we have enjoyed planning all the curriculum and enrichment activities that your children will enjoy over the coming year. Topics we will cover in Year 6 are:


Autumn term

Groovy Greeks and Hola Mexico

Spring Term

Darwin’s Delights and Frozen Kingdom

Summer term

A Child’s War



Our PE days are:  Sycamore- Monday and Friday

                                Pine- Wednesday and Friday

                                Oak- Monday and Wednesday

Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school on these days.

Indoor PE kit: yellow t-shirt, blue shorts

Outdoor PE kit: yellow t-shirt, blue shorts, tracksuit bottoms, tracksuit top and trainers


For PE we expect that the children remove any ear studs and watches.


It has been lovely to see the children come back looking so smart in their school uniform. Please continue to support us in ensuring your child is coming into school with the correct uniform, shoes and equipment. It is also very helpful if all items of uniform are named, so if pieces of clothing are left out/lost they can be reunited with their owner as quickly as possible. As a quick reminder: winter uniform begins in the second half of autumn term.


The children will receive maths, English, topic/science, general knowledge and spelling homework every week. The following table will explain when each piece of homework will be set and when it is required to be handed in by:

Some minor changes to these dates may occur, although we will try and maintain this timetable where possible.

If you have any questions or queries or would like to meet with us to talk about an issue regarding your child, please do come and see us at the end of the school day or make an appointment through the office.
