Welcome to the Y6 class page!

Hello! And welcome. You made it! Your final year here at St Mary’s! How exciting!

Together, let’s make this year your best EVER year of learning in preparation for the next step of your education.

This web page will be an important point of reference for you and your families on a weekly basis.

On it, you are likely to find:

  • Homework information
  • Spelling lists (see the link at the top of this page!)
  • Top tips and learning links to other web pages
  • Key information or news
  • Pieces of children’s outstanding work
  • Photos of exciting events
  • Reminders and prompts to help you get the best from your education

To start with, a reminder that all of you can now access (for FREE!) the excellent ESPRESSO from Discovery Education by simply going to:

www.discoveryeducation.co.uk       clicking on ‘espresso’ and then using the following usernames and passwords:

student18496   student18496

I hope you find some time to use it over the coming year – it will help you get ahead with topic revision, provide you with simple and effective learning platforms and of course provide invaluable as a resource in preparation for your SATs tests next May.

A polite reminder for the new term: before you left for the summer break, all children and parents were reminded that in September 2019 it would be a requirement for ALL children to have a proper book bag and just a simple PE bag for the new school year – rather than the ever bigger ‘rucksack’ type bags that have been coming in. There was also a reminder that pencil cases are not needed as everything is provided in class. Please ensure that you comply with these requirements. Thank you.

Remember to check back here regularly for updates, news, information and lots more!

You are very welcome in Year 6! I hope you enjoy it!

Mr Day

Thank you …and a few shots from the Y6 leavers’ slideshow…

I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who bought kind gifts, sent lovely cards and said thoughtful words as we ended this school  year – it is so very much appreciated! So much generosity, thoughtfulness and love all around!

Here’s just a few piccis from the slide show that was shown in church – just in case you missed any! Feel free to get in touch if you’d like a copy for yourselves and I’ll see what I can do!

Best wishes for a safe and happy summer and good luck for September!

Y6 homework 3/5/19

Hi everyone

After a tough week of intensive learning and assessments, this weekend I encourage you to spend time relaxing and having fun. Keep up your reading as always and if you have any ‘weaker’ areas – especially with maths or spellings– just spend a little time practising to put your mind at rest.

Other than that, come back on Tuesday refreshed and ready to go!

Have a good weekend everyone

Mr Day


Homework 26/4/19


This weekend:

  1. Please complete the reading comprehension on the sheet provided.
  2. Ensure that you have logged your x3 reads from last week – ready for inspection on Monday.

Also – remember to do any further revision for maths and SPAG as you feel you need.

‘You get out what you put in’

Have a great weekend!

Mr Day




Hey Year Six,

Alongside your EXAM NINJA list, the document above might prove useful when preparing for the SPAG test. Click on the link and a word list should magically appear! There is no guarantee that any of these words will come up, but you can bet that similar spellings will! Make it your mission to smash it!

See you soon

Be happy!

Mr Day

Easter Homework 2019

Hi everyone

Firstly –  I hope you have a lovely Easter and come back having had a nice rest and some fun times (and not too much chocolate!)

However, as you know SATs week looms beginning Monday 13th May and you will want to be ready. So we cannot totally sit back and do nothing over Easter!  Here’s what you NEED to do and what I’d LIKE you to do:


  1. Reading. Reading. Reading. Lots of it if you can – and lots of different texts too! You all have been given non-fiction texts to read over Easter alongside your normal reading book. Be sure to question what you read and think deeply – especially about new / tricky words. Talking about your reading is just as important as the reading itself! And most importantly try to ENJOY your reading!
  2. Maths – you have a TIME paper with SATs-style Qs to answer. There is a letter to parents and a SLIP that needs to come back into school the first day back. Please ensure this is completed in full.
  3. Arithmetic extension test to complete and return to school. Aim for full marks. No excuses!
  4. Spellings to learn: Grand Spell coming up the first week back based on SUMMER SPELLINGS GROUPS 1-9


  1. A little bit of revision or catch-up learning where you need to – there are a wide variety of resources available to you now: CGP revision books, IXL.COM, the maths links from the Y6 class page, Mymaths and so on. If fractions isn’t your thing, then make it your thing by studying! If you are not the best at co-ordinates, there are plenty of resources out there to practise with.
  2. Become an EXPERT SPELLER. Dig out your EXAM NINJA lists – it’s these types of words that will come up in your SPAG test. Be ready to smash it!
  3. NOT WORRY. What’s the point? It’s just wasted energy. If you know that you are ready to give it your best and that you have tried hard then that’s all I can ask for. Be in a good state of mind for these tests. Be proud of your efforts and you will feel good about yourself.

Have a great Easter!

Mr Day

Homework 22/3/19

Hi everyone,

A reminder about this week’s homework:

  1. Make sure x3 reads recorded by Monday 24th March (since Sunday 17th March)
  2. Reading each day next week Mon – Fri – signed and recorded words please.
  3. SATs style reading comprehension test to complete – hand in Tuesday checked and signed please.
  4. IXL maths – x30 mins minimum – make a full A4 page of notes / diagrams about what you covered. This is due Wednesday 27th.
  5. Spellings to learn – gp 5 and 7 summer term.

Also – a reminder about ONLINE gaming / WHATSAPP squabbles and issues: if you take part in any unkind online activity this will not be tolerated. These out-of-school problems are taking far too much time away from learning in school and at a time where your focus should be on achieving your very best exam results, this is unacceptable. All parties to any unkindness or thoughtless actions in these forums will be put directly  into a school ‘reflection’ and parents informed. You have been warned. If in doubt, stay out of these forums or delete yourself from a group in order to stay safe and out of any possible trouble.

Mr Day
