Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to our final half term in Year 6!

We have lots of fun things planned before we get ready to move on to our secondary schools.

Remember, we have PE with Dan every Thursday throughout this term so please remember your full PE kit, including your shoes. We will have extra PE lessons in preparation for Sports Day and the annual Year 6 rounders match too!

Please speak to us if you have any questions or concerns.
