Class 8 (Year 6) - Miss Cavill

 Welcome to class 8.

Class 8 is a year six class which is taught by Miss Cavill, Mrs Salmonds is the Teaching Assistant linked to the class.

A note from Miss Cavill

I am proud to have worked at St Helen’s Primary School since September 2004. Each year I am always excited and looking forward to spending time with and getting to know my class.

In my spare time, I love to read and enjoy ‘loosing myself’ in a good book and being taken to a different world or historical time period. I am always on the lookout for new books and any recommendations are always gratefully received. I also enjoy spending time in my garden and grow a range of plants and vegetables.


Year 6
Year 6 is a very important year as the pupils will work hard in order to be ready and prepared to sit their end of Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessments (SATs) in maths, reading and SPaG (spelling, grammar and punctuation).

In year six we aim to ensure that pupils gain not only the knowledge but the skills needed to transition smoothly to their chosen secondary school and continue to be successful throughout their education.

If you have any questions, Miss Cavill will be available to be contacted before or after school.

A Note For Parents

Reading books

Children will bring their reading books and reading journals home from school each day and they are encouraged to read them each night, ideally an adult is to sign the reading journal daily.

Please ensure all reading books and reading journals are returned to school each day – we will be reading our reading books each day in school too.



Your child will bring home 20 spellings on a Monday. They should practise these spellings each night and they will be tested on 10 of them on a Friday. The spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school.  



Each Friday children will bring their weekly homework home.  The homework will be linked to reading, SPaG (spelling, grammar and punctuation) or maths taught in class. 

Homework should be returned no later than the Wednesday of the following week.

If any child is struggling or has questions about their homework, they are to ask Miss Cavill or Mrs Salmonds and they will help them in school.


Water Bottles

Children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school. It should be labelled with your child's name. Children will bring their bottles home daily for cleaning. Please ensure that children only have water in their classroom bottle. (A separate bottle for juice can be sent in if your child has a packed lunch dinner). 



Your child's PE day is a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in each Wednesday and children will bring it home with them on the same day for cleaning. PE kit is black shorts, a white t-shirt and appropriate footwear. PE, where possible, will be taking place outside so children are advised to wear a hoodie and joggers or leggings to keep warm outside, as well as trainers or plimsolls.
