Year 6

Welcome to the year six pages, our teachers are Mrs Johnson (Class 13) and Mr Cope (Class 14).




On Thursday 16th July we welcomed our year 6 children once again - this time, to say goodbye! There was laughter and there were tears (mostly from staff), memories shared and memories made. It was a great afternoon and it was lovely to see so many children. Here are some photos for you to look at and the videos of children leaving the school (for the last time!) below. We are also working very hard to share photo show with you all.

It is Vane Road's tradition that Year 6 children leave the school building through the main door while being applauded by all members of staff. Here are the videos of this moment.

Well, it's no secret that this year was nothing like normal year. But this did not stop Year 6 children to finish learning in style. The traditional end of year water fight happened on the school field. And not only once! Two groups - two fights! It couldn't be any different! Have a look at the fantastic gallery (click on a photo to enlarge it, please). I am not sure who had more fun there! 

PS: Year 6 Team are sending thanks to all parents and carers for putting up with our ideas and organising spare clothes, water guns, water balloons. We couldn't do it without your help!


Year 6 team is very excited to see many of you back next week. Here is a video from Mr Pavey explaining how everything will look like. Enjoy!

We give out English and Maths homework every Thursday which must be returned on the following Tuesday. Every child has a homework book to keep their homework neat and tidy. Additional copies of homework will be available in class should children require them.



We encourage children to read every day! Each child has been given a reading diary to record their reading progress.  We ask that parents sign the diaries at least once a week and children to sign their own at least four times a week.



The children take home spellings to learn each Friday, they are tested on the following Friday. The spellings follow the rules taken from the National Curriculum 2014. Here is a list of the required spellings for years 5 and 6.
