Year 6 2020 - 2021

Miss Andrew


Welcome to our Year 6 class page!

Our class teacher is Miss Andrew. Miss Gabbott will also be teaching alongside Miss Andrew on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday morning. Mrs Noblett will be teaching Year 6 on Thursday afternoons. We are a class of 29 superstars! We strive to achieve our personal best at all times and we are looking forward to challenges and making memories throughout this year.

If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child, please contact me on I will try my best to reply to you as soon as I can.

In Year 6, children are expected to read at least x4 per week. At least one of these reads must be on Oxford Reading Buddy.

At the moment, we ask that the children record when they have read inside their reading record and keep their reading record at home.

Books taken home from school are to be returned to school on a Tuesday and quarantined for 72 hoursNew reading books will be sent home on a Friday. Currently, there will be no opportunity to change/return books on any other days.

Each Friday, the children will receive their weekly spellings via School Spider. Children are expected to explore the meaning of the words featured in their spelling list using a dictionary or Word Hippo, moving on to writing sentences that contain the word in an appropriate context. This can be written, typed or even in a PowerPoint presentation! These sentences will then need to be uploaded via School Spider for me to see.

In addition to this, the children will need to learn the statutory spelling list for Year 5&6 by the end of the year.

Times Tables
In Year 6, it is essential that the children are now fluent in all of their times tables and corresponding division facts. Please encourage your child to maintain their times tables knowledge at home.

The Maths Factor is a great tool for developing instant recall and identifying gaps in knowledge.
