Year 6



Welcome to a brand new year and welcome to Year 6!


I hope you are all really excited to begin your journey this year and make your last year at St. Mary's the best year ever! Mrs Evans and Mrs Platt are extremely excited for all of our trips away, matching you and your special friends in Reception and all of the amazing learning we will do this year. Year 6 really is the best!


To begin the year, our creative curriculum topic is South America and we will be reading Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson. It is a fantastic book that will really stretch our imaginations and help us explore the Amazon Rainforest. This half term we will be writing persuasive letters, information texts and even a short story!



Please wear your PE kit to school on a Monday and Friday and make sure you wear clothing appropriate to the weather!


Please bring your coat to school every day so we can all enjoy our breaktimes outside.
