Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 – Coundon Primary School

Welcome to Team Year  Six. I am Mrs Barras, the class teacher and I am expertly supported by Mrs Croughan  our fabulous teaching assistant.

Year Six is such an incredibly special year, as we reach the dizzy heights of the top at the school and prepare our young people for the transition to Secondary Education.  We strive to ensure that the children feel confident to tackle their end of Year assessments whilst providing a curriculum which stimulates enthusiasm and a love for learning.

Year Six is a year where everyone has an opportunity to shine.

The 2023 KS2 SATs will take place in the week commencing Monday 13th May 2024. The tests will take place over four days and more information will be available nearer the time.


Homework will be given out on a Tuesday. In Year 6 this will include a Mathematical activity that focuses on their revision of learnt skills, an English activity and spellings. Additionally, each term the children will be given a topic project to be completed by the end of the term.  Further to this, children have access to various websites, including TTRockstars, Prodigy Maths and Read Theory.

Reading Books

In Year 6, children are encouraged to read appropriate novels and non-fiction books daily. They are given 20 minutes each day to read at school and we aim for them to match this at home. They should record this in their school diary and have this signed by a parent at least once a week.

Worship and Reflection Areas

We have a dedicated worship and reflection area in class. Here, children are encouraged to spend time reflecting upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and to consider how they fulfil each of our Christian values both at school and at home. In Year 6, the children also plan and lead worship.

Before and After School

At the beginning of the school day, before registration (8:45am – 8:55am depending on arrival time), the children will have different maths, reading and SPAG activities to complete. These are focused on revision and practising the skills they have learnt previously.

School finishes at 3:30pm. In Year 6, children can either be collected from the classroom door or, with written permission, walk home.

General Reminders

  • Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure the children have the appropriate kit for each day.
  • The children will also need their own water bottle in school, which they have access to all day. Please make sure that they are clearly labelled.

Useful Websites (SATS Revision)


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, either after school when collecting your child, via Class Dojo, or by arranging a more formal appointment with the school office.

We know that by working together, your child will continue to shine and “Grow with God”.
