What else do I need to know about Year 6?
  • It is essential that your child has a blue handwriting pen each day in school. We strongly recommend that these are purchased from the school office as they are much cheaper than in the shops!
  • Year 6 is the stepping stone to secondary school and therefore we encourage children to become more independent and well organised. We expect children to have the equipment they need each day for learning.
