Welcome to Hazel's Class Page

Year 6 consists of four classes: 6SB (Mr Brown's Class), 6RW/SW (Mrs Walker's/Miss West's), 6GE (Mrs Edgington's Class) and 6KM (Mr Mellor's Class). Here you will find new, weekly updates and information about the fantastic learning that has taken place in Year 6. Please feel free to take advantage of suggested links that will help support your children with consolidating their learning at home. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our Year 6 team mentioned above if you have any queries.

Learning Together, Growing Together


Our core values of Endurance, Justice, Friendship, Compassion and Peace underpin all that we do.

Summer Term Class Timetables

Our P.E days are:

  • Monday (Indoor)
  • Thursday (Outdoor)

On these days, your child may come to school in their PE kit: plain white T-shirt, black shorts or joggers and plain black trainers. A plain black hooded jacket may also be worn.

If your child has long hair, please ensure it is tied up.

For safety reasons, earrings are not permitted.

Times Tables!

All children in Year 6 must be able to recall their multiplication tables. We use Times Table Rock Stars  to support their rapid recall of these. All children have a login and are encouraged to use it as often as they can.

Here is the link to the website:




“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” Jim Rohn

Here is a link to some recommended reads for Year 6: https://www.thereaderteacher.com/year6

Every child has a reading book and a book they have chosen from our fabulous library.

In addition, each child has a login to Reading Plus set at their own level which targets individual reading need to maximise progress.



Following our Parent /Carer SATs information evening, you can use the below link to review the presentation that the Year 6 staff delivered.
