Welcome to Year 6!

We are now into the spring term. A huge well done to all of our children for making lots of amazing progress last term, not only have they been super learners but they have also shown great resilience in such challenging times. We are so proud of you! Year 6 have adapted well to their new surroundings and routines both at home and in school! Last term, the children worked incredibly hard to improve upon their personal best and have shown us how mature they have become. This term we have lots of exciting lessons planned across the curriculum over the coming weeks, and we are looking forward to making lots of amazing memories and achieving more than ever. We know Year 6 will continue to be Ready, Respectful and Resilient.
