Homework

Maths, English and Spelling homework will be given weekly and there will be a termly topic project too. As you are now in Year 6 it is up to you to plan your time carefully to make sure it is completed on time.

You should all continue to learn your times tables and should read for at least 20 minutes every day and at least once during the weekend. We encourage you to read a book of your own choice.

P.E. and Swimming Kit

Your kit remains the same: black shorts, white t-shirt, suitable footwear and an Ardley Hill tracksuit. As you will now be coming into school in your PE kit, please ensure you have the correct kit. Our PE afternoon will be a Thursday.

For swimming you will need a one piece swimming costume or trunks, towel, flip flops or other suitable footwear, a swimming cap for long hair and a carrier bag for wet clothes. We will swim in the Summer term.

Additional Information

You need a named water bottle which will be kept in the classroom and refilled daily. You will also need a healthy snack in a sandwich bag or named container to have during morning break.

You will be allocated a locker to store your belongings during the day. The locker key is YOUR responsibility and if lost there will be a cost of £5 for a new key.

If you walk to school on your own or with friends you can bring a mobile phone with you. This must be turned off at the beginning of the school day and handed in to be stored securely in the office until the end of the day.


We look forward to making your time in Year 6 creative, fun and memorable. See you soon!
