Welcome to Year 6


Our teacher is Mr Selby. We are also supported in our learning by Mrs Barlow during the first lesson on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and all of Wednesday morning. On Tuesday afternoons, Mrs Connor teaches R.E. and music. 

Being in Class 6 is an exciting and fast-paced year of learning, reflecting, and preparing – as we begin to think about the next steps of our education and prepare for the transition to secondary school.

Our Class Link Governors are Mr Graham McGuffie and Mr Sam Dainty.

Topic Resources

Please click on the picture link to access resources to support your topic work this half term.

Purple Mash

Please can I encourage you to sign up for/install Purple Mash at home. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. Please click on the picture link to login to Purple Mash.

Note:  You have already had your child’s username and password - please let me know if you need this again.

Home Learning

Home Learning

Our home learning is project-based and runs throughout each half-term.

In addition, a weekly wordlist is given out which the children should learn the meanings of as well as the spellings.

Weekly times tables, mental maths or short arithmetic tasks are given out for mathematics.

In Class 6 it is essential that the children read each day at home and are regularly practising their times tables.

This half-term, our P.E. lessons are on Tuesday afternoon and Friday afternoon.  Please ensure your child has a full indoor and outdoor P.E. kit with them in school on these days. Jewellery must not be worn during P.E., with the exception of newly pierced ears which can be covered with plasters until healed.  If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. lessons, please let us know with a short note handed into school.
