Year 6 Class

Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 is made up of two classes: Poplar and Sycamore.


Mr Webb and Mr Thompson teach Poplar class and Mr Staveley teaches Sycamore class.


We also have four fantastic teaching assistants in the year 6 team: Mrs Durrant and Mrs Graham work across both year 6 classes, whilst Mrs Richards and Mrs McDougall are based in Poplar class.


Mr Webb:

Mr Thompson:

Mrs Staveley:


In Poplar Class, PE is taught each Thursday.

In Sycamore Class, PE is taught each Friday.


However, please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school everyday.



Homework is set each Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Homework tasks are stuck into children’s homework books, but they can also be found in the Homework Box below.


Children also have access to Mathletics, TTR, Active Learn, Oddizzi and Purple Mash.


We are a reading school and actively encourage reading throughout the week. As well as the reading pupils enjoy at school, we would also like children to read to an adult at home at least three times per week.


Spelling lists can be found in the front of children’s homework books as well as in the Spelling Box below. Children should learn all 10 spellings and explore the spelling pattern set as part of the homework. Spelling tests will take place every Wednesday where children will be tested on the 10 spellings from their list as well as 5 bonus spellings (words containing the week’s spelling pattern).
