Bringing out the Best

Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 page. We have two year 6 classes. One is taught by Mr Thomas and the other is taught by Miss Celebicanin. Mr Claxton will be teaching the core subjects in a smaller group on a Monday to Friday all morning.  We have Mrs Papworth and Mrs Moss supporting us in these classes.

Remember: The Year 6 school day will be from 8:40 a.m. - 3:10 p.m.

PE: PE will be on a Monday for Miss Celebicanin's class. Please ensure that you wear your PE kit to school every Monday.  We will not be getting changed prior to the lesson.  This is an important part of our school curriculum and we encourage all children to take part.  Appropriate PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms/leggings and suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls.  Remember also as the weather is becoming colder, jumpers would be a good idea to wear. 

Children in Mr Thomas' class will go swimming on a Wednesday afternoon for 3 weeks in Autumn Term 1. Children must come to school in their school uniform and bring their swimming kit with them. 

Both PE and swimming will then switch in 3 weeks time (week beginning 3rd October), whereby Miss Celebicanin' class will go swimming on a Wednesday and Mr Thomas' class will have PE on a Monday. 

Reading: Children are expected to be responsible for bringing in their reading diaries and books when they need to be changed.  They will need to hand in their reading records for checking on a Friday, along with changing books.  We will continue with the 10 minute pledge, where we promise to read 10 minutes to your child every day - with you reading with them for another 10 minutes.
