Starling Class - Year 6

Year 6 - Starling Class

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to Year 6! We have had a great first week back and it has been lovely to see every child come back in with such a positive attitude and willingness to learn.

We are still in bubbles in class and playtime but things look like they are slowly getting back to normal.

Please take a look at the half-term plan in the Curriculum Planning section of the website to find out what topics we are covering subject by subject; hopefully the Starlings will be coming home telling you about their learning and will teach you a thing or two!

As usual, I would like to remind you about the importance of hearing your child read every night, if you can, but on a minimum of 4 occasions in the week, if time is short. We shall be continuing with the Reading Championship competition as it seems to be such a great motivator so, by the end of the year, your child might be sporting 6 badges.

PE lessons will be taken by the brilliant Mr Parsons on Mondays and by Mr Foster on Fridays so please make sure you child comes to school in their kit on those days to maximise learning time.

Homework in Year 6 consists of a weekly spelling list or investigation, some Maths work and some English work. There will be the occasional piece of topic homework.


Should you have any queries, please come and see me in the Year 6 classroom, or give the school a ring to arrange a meeting. I look forward to getting to know the wonderful Starlings and their families.


Many thanks.


Mr Foster
