Sycamore Class ( Year 6)

A warm welcome to Sycamore Class page! 

Class Teacher: Miss Hocking 

Teaching Partner: Mrs Neeley 

They are now at the end of their secondary school journey. The intent of Year 6 is to take full responsibility for every area of school life. From being buddies to Pine Class, House Captains, Reading Ambassadors, School Council and 'monitoring' jobs, Year 6 pupils lead to school in many ways. 

General information 

  • Your child should come to school in their PE kit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this half term. This is subject to change on a half termly basis. Our PE kit consists of: a yellow P.E top, blue/black shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers. Please ensure suitable P.E kit is provided in the cold weather. 
  • KS2 SATs begin on the 13th May 2024. There will be SATS information sessions for parents early next year-dates TBC but will be on the school calendar.
  • Reading diaries must be in school each day. The expectation is that each child will read at home a minimum of three times a week. This will be checked by the class teacher on a Friday, and it is important that parents sign the diary. 
  • We know there will be secondary school visits this year. Please inform the office as soon as you have any tours booked in, thank you. 


Our theme, that will drive our learning, is Inspiring Women. Where there is a meaningful link, we will connect children’s learning experiences. In History, we will be using our enquiry skills to find out how women's roles have changed through time. We will then use our geography skills to explore where women's rights are different and why that is the case. We will look at what roles women play within religion. We will be having visits from inspiring women in our local community and will get to interview them on their role in society.  In Art, we will be conducting a fashion shoot and then learning how to draw facial features. In D.T, we will then be finding out about women who have demonstrated great textile design and will be making out own piece of clothing-a waistcoat. 

We have lots of fun theme experiences planned for the term so that the children can immerse themselves within the subject matter and make meaningful connections. On this class page, there is a copy of our Parent Overview that will detail some of these. This gives an insight into what the children will be learning about in each subject. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to come and speak to us.
