Welcome to Year 6
The staff that work in this year group are:
- Ms Seward (Assistant Head)
- Mrs Moore (6A Class Teacher)
- Miss Bhogal (6B Class teacher)
- Miss Richardson (6C Class Teacher)
Year 6 is a wonderful year group to be in, full of exciting opportunities and learning. It is the year before you move on to Secondary school, so we always try to make it an enjoyable experience! You are now the oldest children in Hillary Primary School, and we expect you to all to be excellent role models for other children in our school.
When children move to Year 6, the biggest question they have is about the SATs tests. Please don’t be nervous about them, in Year 6 we revise all of the different elements of English and maths which you have already been taught so far in years 3, 4 and 5 so that you will be confident and well-prepared for the tests in May. Do not worry; we have lots of time to go through anything that you might need more help with. We also have some fabulous science, history, PE, geography, computing, art and DT topics to look forward to as well!
Here are some topics that you can look forward to learning about in Year 6:
- World War One
- Evolution and Inheritance
- Early Islamic Civilisation
- Animals Including Humans (how the heart and blood works)
- Algebra (don’t worry it’s not scary we promise!)
- The Victorians
- North America
- Leaver’s activities in the final half term
We work hard in Year 6, but we also have lots of fun. There is lots for you to look forward to and we hope that you enjoy your time in Year 6 as much as we do!

Attendance & Punctuality
It is vital that your child attends school and that they are on time every day. The doors will be open for 10 minutes for children to arrive. Please try and book any appointments outside of the school day where possible.
Start Time: 8.40am
Children may bring in a clean water bottle to drink from during the school day. Children are able to re-fill bottles at school. Please ensure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Year 6 children are able to purchase toast and a drink to eat at break time. This needs to be booked and paid for in advance via the School Gateway app.
Toast – 50p per day (2 slices)
Drinks (water, orange juice, chocolate milkshake, strawberry milkshake) – 50p per day
Alternatively, children are able to bring a healthy snack from home, such as fruit.
Children are able to have a hot dinner from school for their lunch, this must be paid for and ordered on the School Gateway app in advance. The cut off for ordering is 8am on a daily basis. Dinners are £2.20 per day. Alternatively, children may bring in a healthy packed lunch from home if they prefer.
Please note: We are a nut free school as we have many children with serious allergies. Please do not send anything into school that contains nuts, this includes chocolate spread.
If your child is entitled to free school meals, you must still make a meal selection on the app. If you do not make a selection on the app, your child will receive a jacket potato. The cut off for ordering is 8am on a daily basis.
