Horton Mill Community Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 class page.

Miss Lake will be your class teacher and Miss Hussain will be in class every day to support us with our learning.

Our class entrance is on the KS1 playground. You will see Miss Lake or Miss Hussain at the door. If you ever need to speak to us or want to have a chat about your child’s learning, just say hello in the morning! If you need a longer conversation with one of us, just let us know and we can arrange a time.

Important information 

We have a P.E lesson on Tuesday and on a Thursday, so your child will need to come to school in their P.E kit. They need to wear:

  • a white top
  • black shorts or black jogging pants
  • plain trainers
  • a black jumper or jacket
  • If your child wears a scarf, they need to bring a sports scarf in for their active sessions.

Your child has a reading book and reading record which should come to school each day. If they read at home with an adult 3 times, they will receive a reading raffle. At the end of each term I pick a raffle ticket and that child will receive a special reading prize!
