Year 6

Welcome to 2021 / 2022

Year 6 Key Information page


Mr Leonard is the Year 6 teacher.  The contact email is

Water bottles should be brought to school every single day.  Clothing (such as jumpers) should be named to avoid being lost.

During the Autumn Term, PE kits will be required on a Monday and on a Thursday.


Homework will usually be set on a Friday.  Maths Homework is usually a MyMaths online exercise.  Reading Comprehension homework is in book form and is also given on a Friday and is due by the following Wednesday.   Spelling practice tasks will often be set on a Monday and tested one week later. 

We strongly recommend that homework is not left until the last minute and that any pupil who is facing difficulties with the homework speaks to the teacher as soon as possible rather than missing the deadline.


Reading is so important.  Year 6 pupils should be reading every day at home and sharing what they have read with their parents / carers.  The Accelerated Reader programme is being used to incentivise reading at the appropriate level for each pupil.


 The St. Christophers focus Value for the first half term is Friendship.  The Year 6 Class Target is : 

        We will all offer to play with somebody that we don't usually play with.

and it is our aim for the whole class to complete that target before the end of the half term.

Year 6 pupils have also all set themselves an individual target to achieve in the same timescale.
