Welcome to 6HB

Mrs Berry and Mrs Haslehurst work closely together in 6HB with Mrs Jones our teaching assistant. We have many years of experience in year 6 and hope our new class page gives you information to support you this year. We know many children can be anxious about the National Curriculum tests, so please do not hesitate to speak to us to ease your worries.


Reading Books

Please bring your reading books to school every day and record in your reading log. Reading 10 minutes every day can make a big difference to your learning. Try to read a range of genres including non-fiction. You should still try to read to an adult to practice your expression and build up your confidence.


Water bottles

Remember to bring water bottles (with a sports top) to school. Water is good for our brains.



Year 6 are swimming every Wednesday in Autumn term 1, children need their swimming costume, towel, swimming hat for long hair and a comb. Children should not bring any deodorants with them please. Swimming is part of the National Curriculum and is an essential life skill.


Attendance and punctuality is essential in Year 6. Lessons begin with mindfulness techniques at 9.00 am to get us focussed for the day and by 9.10 we have begun our first lesson on Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Good attendance ensures we will not miss any important work and we will become more confident learners. Children who attend school regularly do achieve higher marks throughout their school career. Come on 6HB, let's try to get the highest attendance each day.
