Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!



Home Learning


The next few weeks will look different for all of us and we wish to keep our children active, engaged and learning!


Our 'Get Involved' page ( ) will  challenge you to a daily 'task' and you can email us at to share your pictures, videos or diaries.


Please also download our Home Learning Packs and resources if you weren't able to collect one from school. We still have some available in the office if you would like to call in and collect one for your child. 


We will continue to update these resources, so please keep visiting our class page as well as checking parentmail.


Welcome to the Year 6 class page. This is where you can see some of the activities we have been taking part in and find out any important information you may need. There is a weekly timetable for each class as well as an overview of the topics we are covering this term.
