Meet the Team
Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 is a significant year for our children and we want to work with you to ensure each child makes good or better progress to achieve their potential. We want the children to enjoy learning and become self-motivated, independent learners.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do speak with us after school or email firstname.lastname@example.org
By working together, we can ensure this is an amazing, positive year for the children and one they will remember.
Thank you, Mrs Clark, Mrs Bottomley and Miss Westwell

YEAR 6 RESIDENTIAL
I am pleased to be able to tell you that I have provisionally booked a residential trip for Year 6 for Monday 12th—Wednesday 14th July next year. The trip will be for 3 days and 2 nights and include an action-packed timetable of outdoor and adventurous activities with Robinwood at the Old School House, Todmorden. It is an excellent venue, which we have visited before and offers the children an excellent range of adventurous activities, from climbing and caving to archery and problem solving.
Details about the venue can be found at :
More information and details will be sent out soon.
