St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 Parents please note:

There is a misprint on the  Admissions policy posted on the Compass School website relating to the over subscription criteria.  It should read - SEN and Looked After Children, siblings and then distance from school.

There is NO supplementary form and the pupil premium criteria should not form part of the over subscription criteria.


This term, the children  will be looking at the novel 'Rooftoppers' . We will be supplementing this with a range of other texts on a weekly basis as part of our English lessons and reading carousel activities.

There will be a large emphasis on homework in year 6 this year, children will often be required to read parts of our class novel at home to assist with their learning that week. Homework shall usually consist of spellings, a maths activity and a reading task which is linked to our class novel. 

Other points of note

We ask that children read every day and input this into their reading journal.

PE this year will be on a Thursday afternoon
