Welcome to our class page!


Please find below everything that you need to know about Year 6, your child's final year at primary school. It is both an exciting and challenging year as your child prepares to make the transition to secondary school.


If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to speak to me, please email me at year6teacher@holytrinity.tameside.sch.uk



Pupils in Year 6 must read their reading book at least 3 times per week to help them develop their reading fluency and understanding.  Please listen to your child read out loud regularly.  Having an audience really encourages children to practise their reading fluency.

Each time your child reads, they must complete their purple reading journal. This must be handed in each Thursday for checking. Please show your support for your child by signing their record book each time they have read.

Extra colour band reading books are available at www.activelearnprimary.co.uk. Your child knows how to access this from home. Please do let us know if there is ever a problem with this.


New spelling words are given out on Monday mornings. Please support your child in practising them at home. They will be tested on their spelling words each Friday. www.spellingframe.co.uk is a free online site where pupils can access their spellings and complete online activities based on them.


Times tables

In Year 6, children are expected to know all their multiplication and division facts and are tested on them each week. They are so important in all areas of maths. Please encourage your child to practise their times table facts regularly at home on www.ttrockstars.com



Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their kit on these days and that each item has their name in it. As the weather gets colder, we will continue to take P.E. outdoors so please make sure that your child has a zip up jacket or hoodie to keep them warm. Please refer to the uniform policy  for more information on the kit that they need. 


Fruit money

All children are offered a piece of fruit at morning break time. The cost for this is £1 per week. Please send this to school each Monday, in a named envelope. We cannot accept loose money at this time.
