6 - Miss Houghton and Mrs Lipscombe

Year 6 Summer Term 2024


Welcome back after the Easter holidays.


The children are working hard towards the SATs which are in the second week of May. Please ensure your child gets plenty of rest prior to this week. The children often feel quite anxious about the tests so please reassure them that they will be fine and that they need not worry. A letter has been sent home about SATs breakfast, please remember to complete the return form if your child is attending.


Later in the summer term we will be studying The Second World War in our history lessons and visiting Parham airfield in June. In Science we will be looking at electrical systems. PE lessons will be taught on Mondays and Thursdays. On these days, pupils should come to school wearing their PE kit. Pupils can also wear PE kit to school on days when they are attending a lunchtime/after school sports club. On all other days, pupils should wear school uniform. Please ensure that long hair is tied back at all times and jewellery is restricted to a pair of stud earrings and a watch.


Please ensure your child has a hat and suntan lotion on at the beginning of the day, when the weather is forecast to be hot and sunny.


Homework: We will continue to set this regularly. Please encourage your child(ren) to complete this each week.

  • Read three times a week.
  • Maths homework based on the learning that week  
  • Grammar homework

We will check that homework has been completed and set new homework each week. Please encourage your child to speak to their teacher as soon as possible if they need any support with the work that has been set.


Mobile phones: If your child needs to bring a phone to school, they may do so. They should place their phone in the class bag in the morning; this will be secured in the office for the day. Pupils will be able to retrieve their phone at the end of the day but should keep them switched off until they are off the school premises.

Year 6 Careers week


Year 6 were very lucky to meet and interview people from various professions this week. The children really enjoyed asking some interesting questions and understanding what key skills they will need for their future careers.

The children met with people from the space industry, software and robotics industry, a chemist, fire fighters, a police officer and a race car engineer.


Pictures of the visit to the Fire Station are below.
