Year 6 - Sycamore

Year 6 - Sycamore

Miss Shepherd, Mrs Hiller and Mrs Atherton welcome you to Sycamore Class.  

This is an exciting time for our pupils as they enter the final stage of their primary school journey.  Whether your child has been with us from the start of their educational journey or has joined us on the way, many memories have been made and there are still more to come!    

In Sycamore Class, we always aim high and strive to achieve our potential.  We also know that making mistakes is a sign that we are trying so we’re not afraid to make them, and subsequently learn from them.   

In addition to some of the special year 6 responsibilities such as Head Boy, Head Girl and prefect roles, year 6 is also an important year which provides pupils with the opportunity to develop a certain level of independence before the transition to high school.   

Key information 

Read 4 the Stars 

All pupils are encouraged to read at least 4 times per week so that they can participate in the Read 4 the Stars reward scheme.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record every week so that their home reading counts towards Read 4 the Stars.  Reading is a key skill and we are keen to instil a love of reading in our pupils that lasts a lifetime! 

PE 

PE will take place every Monday.  We ask that pupils attend school wearing their PE kits on this day each week.   

Brass lessons 

All year 6 pupils will get the chance to learn to play a brass instrument.  Brass lessons will take place every Tuesday morning in the school hall and will be delivered by a specialist music teacher.   

SATs Week 

As pupils are in their final year of primary school, they will sit the statutory tests known as SATs.  These will take place on the week commencing Monday 9th May.  More information will be sent out nearer to the time.   

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via ClassDojo.  

Thank you for your continued support.  

Miss Shepherd, Mrs Hiller and Mrs Atherton
