Meet the Team

Mrs E Clarke


Miss J Gallagher

Teaching Assistant

Miss L Westwell


Welcome to Year 6!

Year 6 is a significant year for our children and we want to ensure that every child is working to achieve their full potential.   In Year 6 it is imperative that the children enjoy school life, but also work to become more self-motivated, independent learners - ready for the years ahead.  It is really important that we work together on this journey, if you have any queries or concerns, please do speak with any of the team after school, by making an appointment through the office or via email.

Let's make Year 6 a wonderful year for our children to cherish.

Thank you, Mrs Clarke,  Miss Gallagher and Miss Westwell

Tasks: Every Monday your child will be set spelling homework on Seesaw. Your child will be shown how to complete the task in class before attempting to complete it at home.  They will also get personalised learning tasks to be completed.

Spellings: We will share fifteen words linked to a spelling rule we have been practicing in class for your child to learn each week. There will also be an additional 5 statutory words, which will not be linked to the spelling rule. There will be a spelling test the following Friday.

Reading: Books will be changed once the children have completed their reading quiz on Accelerated Reader.  We expect children to change their book at least once every seven days.  Please access reading in other ways such as through local libraries, books you have at home and which enables you to access a range of books online for free.

Dinners: School dinners are back to a choices menu. You may select packed lunches. Do inform us of any changes. Water bottles from class will be available out in the hall, however all children can access water in the dinner hall.


Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch.


Snack: The children can bring in a healthy morning and afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket, separate to their lunch boxes or bags.


P.E kits: We will be doing PE outside as much as possible so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for this. Their kit can remain in school for the half term. Please take out or tape up earrings on PE days. Children may bring in plain black tracksuit bottoms or leggings for outdoor PE sessions.


Forest School: We still want the children to come to school in their Forest School clothes on Forest School days. Do not forget - they will still need to bring their change of footwear and waterproofs in a bag. Please ensure that the clothes sent to wear are not for ‘best’ and that they will be appropriate for the weather conditions. Please bring a bag with an additional coat and wellies on the Forest School dates.
