Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Our teacher is Mrs Pennington (Mrs Jennings teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon)

We are helped by Mrs North..

Hothersall Lodge

What an amazing time Year 6 had at Hothersall Lodge this year! All of the children were amazing and confronted every challenge with determination and a huge smile on their face. Throughout the week, we have enjoyed a number of exciting activities including canoeing, climbing, orienteering, archery, mountain biking and survival skills, as well as some fantastic evening activities. We also enjoyed a walk to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss. Every child took part in activities that helped them to conquer their fears, work as a team and develop strategies to overcome problems. The food was delicious, with plenty of choice for everyone and the children had a great time spending their money at the tuck shop. The staff also had a fantastic time because of the fantastic behaviour, attitude and resilience of the children.


So a big thank you and massive well done to every single child!


Mrs Pennington, Mr Atkinson, Mrs Bennett and Mrs Chippendale. 


Hello and welcome to Year 6!


I hope that you have all had a lovely time over the summer and are ready for a new school year. I am very excited to be teaching Year 6, and looking forward to working together to ensure that we all have a very exciting and productive final year. I am sure that you and your child will enjoy the new challenges and approaches to learning that Year 6 has to offer - we have a lot to look forward to!


If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me, either by email, at, or at the end of the school day, and I will do all that I can to help.


Many thanks,

Mrs Pennington. 




Homework books - Homework is a key part of learning in Year 6, as it helps to embed skills we have been learning in class. Weekly English and Maths homework will be set on a Tuesday and a Thursday to be completed for the following week. I would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to complete their homework and ask for extra help, if they need it, before it is due to be handed in.

Reading - In order to continue to make good progress, it is very important that you continue to listen to your child read regularly. We will also listen to your child read as much as possible in school, so please ensure that your child has their reading book with them each day. When your child has finished their book, they will be responsible for changing it themselves, by selecting a book that they have not read from our reading book library. The children will also be given lots of other opportunities to read and share books in class and are encouraged to read a range of texts including class library books, books from home, and other texts that interests them.

Times tables - Your child’s log in for Times Table Rockstars is stuck in the front of their reading records. Children have time in school to access their accounts but regular short bursts of time at home will really help them consolidate their times tables knowledge. It is a national expectation that children have a secure knowledge of the 1-12 times tables, so it is really important that children are prioritising any tables that they do not know! This is especially important in preparation for SATs, which heavily rely on children having a sound times table knowledge.  


General Reminders

  • Our PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days (trainers, white T-Shirt and blue shorts/ tracksuit bottoms (on colder days), with their school jumper). 
  • Children are asked to bring in their own water bottle to keep in class, which they can access throughout the day. These will be sent home at the end of each day to ensure that their water is changed regularly. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.
