The Year 6 team have an exciting and enjoyable learning adventure planned and look forward to many varied activities and trips we have planned for later this year. 

Like the other year groups we cover the full spectrum of the Primary Curriculum. Hopefully in the near future our students will once again be able to go on exciting school trips and attend a variety of extra-curricular clubs. However, in Year 6 the children have the added challenge of preparing and taking their SATS exams as well as becoming secondary-ready.


Children are expected to wear full, correct kits which includes: a white t-shirt, black trousers or shorts, and black trainers/plimsolls. In addition, children should take off any watches and children with long hair need to be able to tie this up. Please ensure your child is fully prepared on their particular days.

Home learning

Children should be reading for at least 30 minutes every day and parent/carers should sign their child's home reading journal at least once a week with any comments about their reading. Additionally, spellings will be sent home each week and must be learned and practised to assist your child's writing. Every pupil has a log-in for Times Table Rockstars and they should be using the app or website version as often as possible.

Trips including the PGL residential

In Year 6 we like to enrich our topics with as many outdoor learning opportunities as possible. In most years trips to look forward to this year include a fantastic trip to the HMS Belfast, a FREE cinema visit as part of the Into Film Festival and a Christmas treat to watch a Theatre show.  

 In the Spring we are lucky enough to be taking year 6 on our PGL residential trip to the Isle of Wight, where we will be staying overnight for four nights. We will take part in many exciting activities such as quad biking, climbing and abseiling.
