Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

We have lots of exciting activities planned this term. Our final class topic for the Summer Term is "Moving On" and we will be developing a range of skills and considering a number of issues as we prepare to leave St Hild's and start new schools in September.

 

We will be doing PE on a Thursday afternoon this term, however you need to have your full PE kit and shoes in school every day so you can take part in other sporting activities throughout the week. 

 

Please remember to read your home reading books and bring your signed book back into school every day. You will also need to bring your water bottle to school every day too. 

 

Key information will be shared on this page and on our class dojo page so remember to check regularly. If you have any questions, please just ask.

Miss Luke, Mrs Dart and Mrs Roddam smiley
