Year 6

My name is Mr Hayward and I am the Year 6 class teacher. This year, I will be working alongside Mrs Parkes and Miss Oliarnyk. We are all looking forward to supporting the children in what will be a very important year of their education. 

 

This class page aims to share with you examples of children’s work, class photos and guidance to aid your understanding of what and how your child is learning in Year Six. Please ensure you visit the class page regularly to keep updated. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of the Year 6 team and we will be more than happy to help.
