Class 7 (Year 6) - Miss Richardson

 Welcome to Class 7,

Class 7 is a year six class, which is taught by Miss Richardson. We are very lucky to be supported by our teaching assistants Mrs Foreman (full time) and Miss Fletcher (every morning).


A note from Miss Richardson

Supporting your child's safety and wellbeing will remain our top priority. Should you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, we will always be available to support you so please contact us. Each day we will be available on the playground after school or alternatively, you can make an appointment through the school office. 

In year 6, we cover a range of exciting topics, such as: The Bombardment, Earthquakes, creating sculptures and designing our own invasion-style computer game. Together, we will have a wonderful year full of opportunities before your transition into year 7. 


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 Richardson 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 Richardson or Mrs Foreman 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 Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school with their PE kit in a bag.

The school’s PE kit consists of black shorts/joggers/leggings, 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. 


Your child's swimming day is a Monday. Please ensure that your child comes to school with their swimming kit in a bag.
