smiley WELCOME TO OWL CLASS smiley


Welcome to Year 6! Please find below some key information regarding reading, homework, PE and timings. Click on the tabs to find out more about our topics this year. 



School starts: 8.50am. Children should arrive no earlier unless they have younger siblings. 

Home time: 3.10pm for all children. 



  • Children are expected to read 3-5 days a week at home. This can be alone or with an adult, but we encourage sharing books at home! This should be recorded in children’s reading diaries, and must be signed by an adult. Reading certificates will be awarded when children have met the different milestones: 50 Bronze, 100 Silver, 150 Gold, 250 Platinum.



Homework will be set on a Friday and is expected back in the following Thursday. This includes:

  • Spellings to be practised for a spelling test on Thursdays. See homework folder for more information on learning spellings.
  • Mirodo homework, to be completed online - this could be a maths or English task. Login information in new reading records. 
  • Children are expected to practise times tables regularly. Being quick at recalling times tables supports lots of other maths learning that we do in school. Children can practise with others or practise online using Times Tables Rockstars.


Looking for more?

Children might also like to complete one or more of the Nandos challenges! These are not compulsory, but are fun activities which relate to our topic, and can be done with parents at home. Nando's homework can be found in your child's homework folder, and is also attached below.

Spring 2: PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Children should come to school in their PE kits and ensure they are prepared for all weather!
