Year 6


Summer Term 2018

This promises to be an action packed and productive term. Our main focus for the start of the Summer term is preparation for their forthcoming exams. We have exciting events and activities planned in Yorkshire week which promises to be fun for all. This term will provide an opportunity for children to visit a local university and experience higher education. Our presentation this year will be Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which we hope will inspire some great performances from the children.

Year 6 will continue to have PE on a Monday and Wednesday.

All children will be expected to bring full PE kit to each session.


Our classroom doors are always open for parents who need to discuss any problems or concerns they have regarding  or any other matters.


The Year 6 teachers are Mrs J Palit (6JP), Mr S Bland (6SB), Miss E Garbett (6EG) & Mr Harris. Our wonderful classroom assistants are Mrs A Fisher and Miss N Gregg. 

To help the children become more independent they have all been given a Homework Diary. The purpose of this is to organise messages, track reading at home and helps teachers communicate with parents individually (if needed).
