Monday - Friday: Miss Potter and Mrs Hayes


We welcome you to come and speak to us if you have any queries. Please leave a message with the staff member at the gate if you cannot see a member of the Year 6 team. Time is limited in the mornings and not particularly private, so the end of the day is preferable if it can wait.


In Year 6, pupils will be asked to complete homework containing reading, SPaG, maths and another task (writing, topic, science etc).


Reading will be recorded in reading records and spelling will be recorded in English books. Reading records should be in on a Friday. Spellings will be tested on the Wednesday. 

Any 'other tasks' can be completed on paper and photographed or on a computer or tablet. Photos can be emailed to the school office.
