Year 6

A fantastic time was had by all at PGL. Here are a small selection of photos from the weekend for now.

Links to home learning.

If your child is absent for an extended period, the following links to the Oak Academy lessons will enable learning from home.  

English = please use Reading+ for a minimum of 20 minutes per day.  

Maths = please access TTRS each day plus look at the lessons on MYMaths, choose at least one to complete each day.

Welcome to Year 6.



The Year 6 team consists of Ms Fraser, Mr Napier and Mr Wilson-Maher. 

Mrs Woodward has taken up an exciting new position and Year 6 pupils wish her well in her new adventures. 


PE is on Monday (outdoor) and Tuesday (indoor), please come to school in the appropriate PE kit.  Sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms are recommended as the weather becomes cooler, pumps for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor.  Tights are not to be worn and remember to tie hair back and remove earrings. 


Maths and reading homework will be online as this proved very successful during lockdown, they are a great way to help support the children in embedding their learning and catching up on any areas they feel less confident in.

Each pupil has a Reading Plus account, this programme is very effective in improving reading speed, stamina and understanding.  This should be accessed for homework for at least two twenty minute sessions. 

MyMaths homework will support the work carried out in class, each child has their own password and user name.  The homework task will be available when they log on.

All the online programmes provide information on individuals' access, strengths and areas to develop, enabling the teacher to effectively support pupils in class. 


For those pupils unable to access the online programmes or who would like some additional guidance, Ms Fraser and Mr Napier will host a drop in homework club during Tuesday lunchtime. 


The children also have access to TTRock stars for fun times table work.


Reading books are changed each week.  Please bring the book back on Fridays and choose a new book on Monday.  Don't forget to record the reading in the diary. 


Each Year 6 pupil is provided with a diary and record book to develop organisational skills.  Children will make notes of up coming events, resources needed, timetables etc, it is also a good starting point for chatting with your child about their day in school.

Good afternoon,

Kindest regards,


Well done Year 6 girls.
