Welcome to Year 6 - Transition Information




Welcome to the wonderful world of Year 6, where we work hard, achieve our best, but most of all have fun.


We are so excited to begin our learning journey with you which will include venturing through the exotic jungles of Indonesia, the ancient kingdom of Benin and the magical world of Oz. You will take on missions with Bear Grylls, become spies like James Bond and have the opportunity to become extreme thrill-seekers on our fun-filled residential to Robinwood. Whilst Year 6 can seem daunting due to the challenges of SATs and transition to high schools, you can rest assured that we will be preparing and supporting you every step of the way.


Remember – you are awesome and amazing and together we are going to make some fantastic memories.

We look forward to getting to know you all in September.

Important Information


  • Please ensure that your child reads their reading book for 10 minutes every night and they log this in their planners. 
  • Instead of completing project books, Year 6 will be given a piece of Maths and Grammar homework every Thursday, which will be based on our current learning. They will also be set homework on Google Classroom for our current topic.  All homework is expected to be completed and handed in on the following Tuesday. Children will earn raffle tickets for each piece to win prizes at the end of the half-term. If children need support with their homework, please ask them to come and see us on a Friday or a Monday. 
  • Our P.E session will take place on a Thursday. Your child will need to come to school wearing their P.E kit: white top, black shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms, school jumper and trainers/pumps. Football kits and colourful outfits are not allowed. Please ensure that your child removes any earrings for P.E and any long hair is tied back.
  • Your child will need to bring a water bottle each day to school and a washable coat. As the classroom windows will be open all day, please ensure that your child wears layers under their school uniform to keep warm. 
  • Reading books and planners should be brought into school in a book bag or drawstring bag. Please do not bring any large bags or rucksacks into school as we have limited storage space in our building. ​​​​
