Year 6

Our teacher in Year 6 is Mrs Hume and she is helped by Mrs Birtwell and Mrs Murphy.

Our link Governor is Mrs J McCue

It has been an exciting start to Year 6 and we are looking forward to teaching you this next year and hope you will enjoy your time in Year 6.

Some work will be challenging, but it’s lots of fun too!


Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on a Tuesday (indoor PE) and Friday (Outside and Friday Finals). We encourage the children not to wear any jewellery to school. If your child wears earrings please remove them prior to our PE lessons.

Letters and Belongings

Children are encouraged to empty and deal with items in their book bags independently and to pass on appropriate letters to the teacher. Please remind your child if they have a letter to give to us in the morning. Please return any letters to school via your child’s book bag.


In Year Six, your child will be given the opportunity to change their home reading book every day.  Any book that needs changing needs to be accompanied by your child’s Reading Record. Please write a comment in the Reading Diary to say that the book is finished. You may also write comments based on your child’s home reading. The children will be given a stamp every time they read with an adult and they can collect these stamps and swap them for prizes!
