Welcome to Y6A's class page. See below for all of our key information for this upcoming year:

Key Information

Please click on Curriculum > Learning Maps to see the topics that our children will be learning this term.

P.E days:  Wednesday (Outdoor) & Thursday (Indoor).

On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson, we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.

Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits. For more information regarding the correct P.E kit, please go to:

Water bottles & snacks: Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle labelled with their name. Also, if your child wishes to have a snack during break times, it must be one of the following items: 

      • Toast
      • Fruit
      • Plain biscuit

Homework: Every day, your child will be expected to:

  • Practise their spellings by using Spelling Shed or any other method (5 minutes)
  • Practise their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars or any other method (5 minutes)
  • Read their accelerated reading book with an adult or access their reading account on Epic  (class code is tsr9796) (5 minutes)
  • Complete designated assignments on SATS Companion as and when required.

Log in details for the websites are in the notes section of your child's journal.


Spellings: The children be given a new set of spellings to take home and practice each Monday. They will then be tested on the week's spellings every Friday. 

Times Tables: The children will be tested each Tuesday.

Reading:  School journals are to be used to record any reading that occurs inside and outside of school. All children should be reading every day at home. The children will be using a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'range of scores' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that range. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an iPad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. Due to COVID-19, there may be a reduced number of books available to the children to read in school. However, the children can access more books online by accessing their accounts on EPIC and clicking on 'AR'. Alternatively, the children could check on the Accelerated Reading app whether any books that they have at home fit into their 'range of scores' and if so, complete the quizzes available.

I will hear the children read each week as part of reciprocal reading sessions.

Please ensure that your child brings their school journal into school every day.
Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office (0151 487 5678)  ( ) if you do not find the information you are looking for.

Many thanks,

Mr Sanders
