Byerley Park Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 6. We have an excellent year ahead planned and we can’t wait to get started. Mr Everson, Mrs Wimbury, Mrs Dobinson and Mr Gargan will all be working with you during your final year in Byerley Park.  We do work hard, but we try to have lots of fun in the process. Our work will link, as much as possible, to the topics we study during each term, so that you can make stronger and more memorable links in your learning.

Things To Remember


Reading – Please try to hear your child read three times a week and record it in their Reading Record Book. Reading books need to in every Wednesday, and they will be changed ready to go back home that day. One piece of maths and one piece of English homework will be sent home every Friday. Homework must be returned by the following Wednesday. Spelling tests and lessons take place every Friday and children can practise their spellings on Spelling Shed. Children are also expected to regularly practice their times tables on Times Table Rock Stars.

PE Kit

Ensure your child’s PE kit is in school every day. PE is currently every Tuesday and Thursday (for those that are not swimming). Some children will also need their swimming kits every Thursday.
