Welcome to Year 6 

A new adventure begins in September, so it's good to be reminded that, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” - Lao Tzu

Summer Homework

Here is your summer homework if you are a Year 6 child in September! We will look at these holiday scrap books on Wednesday 6th September 2017.


A polite reminder that all children must have a full PE kit.  This should include a plain white t-shirt and dark shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms.  PE is twice a week: Monday's with Mr B & Ms L and Thursday's with Mr Simms.  As long as the weather is nice, we'll generally be outside in the summer term.

The Year 6 Toolkit can be printed here.
