Welcome to our Year 6 Class Page
We hope you have had a lovely Easter!
We are looking forward to seeing you all at 8:30am on Monday for breakfast.
You are all truly amazing Year 6. You've got this!
Welcome to Year 6, we hope you enjoy reading our class page.
Your teaching team will be Miss Hicks, Mrs Myers, Mrs Meek and Mrs Questa. Miss Hicks will teach all day on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Myers will teach every Wednesday morning, alternate Wednesday afternoons and all day Thursday and Friday. As well as being in class every morning, Mrs Meek will also teach alternate Wednesday afternoons. We will also have Mrs Questa joining us on a Friday morning to teach small groups of children.
In Year 6, we are becoming even more responsible and independent learners. We inspire and cultivate a mature approach to taking control of our own learning, becoming ready to face the risks and challenges in our futures, whilst embedding independence, resilience, teamwork and empathy.
Our PE days are now on a Monday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that you are wearing your PE uniform with suitable sports trainers, have long hair tied up and earrings either removed or covered with a plaster – before you come to school! PE will continue to be outside.

We have had a lovely last week of this term - despite the weather! Can you believe that we were in T-shirts, having a picnic last week?! The children have completed their Bikeability and were fantastic! They didn't let the weather get them down and they kept at it all day. The instructors were very impressed with our amazing year 6 children - you made us very proud!
We had a wonderful school trip to Skelton Grange and the weather was incredible! When you're outdoors all day, it makes a real difference. The children learnt about early taxonomist, Carl Linnaeus, the taxonomy system he created and why classifying is important in science; they took part in pond-dipping, classifying the pond creatures using a characteristics key; they had to identify trees by their characteristics and they were early scientists, illustrating plants with their leaves and buds. Phew! What a great day! It was a fab way to launch our new biology topic: Living Things and their Habitats. In Year 6, this focuses on classification.
In preparation for the children being ‘High School Ready’ homework will be planned in the following way:
