Year 6

Welcome to Sycamore Class, Year 6


Class Teacher: Miss Becky Denby
Higher Level Teaching Assistant and PPA: Mrs Marie Hill

Other adults in class: Mrs Northfield and Mrs Hall


Welcome to the first half term of Year 6! This half term we have our class residential, as well as children being given the opportunity to take on roles of responsibility through school. 


This half term, we are exploring the question: Why did they have to 'Keep Calm and Carry On'?

By exploring this question, we will not only learn about World War Two, but also gain a deeper understanding of how the war impacted people's lives both in England and other countries. One of the books we will be reading together is 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman, the story of a young Jewish boy in Poland.


PE days: Wednesday and Friday

Children should have both indoor and outdoor kit in school all the time, as during bad weather we may be able to have PE indoors. For PE lessons, it is important that all jewellery be removed and long hair tied back.



Sycamore class have already developed a love of reading for pleasure and it would be wonderful to embrace this at home as well, listening to children read and discussing their favourite texts. Also, please ensure that children have their Reading Records in school each day.


Water and Snacks

Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school and fruit for snacks.
