Be The B.E.S.T To Achieve Success For All

Welcome to Year 6 Red Base

Miss Marshall, Mr Fox and Miss Mylett WELCOME you to Year 6 in Red Base.


Welcome to our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.


Our day starts at 8:40am where our door will be open for children to come in until 8:50am. Our day ends at 3:10pm.


Our PE days are Monday (indoor) and Tuesday (outdoor). Children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/ bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure that your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days.


Homework is daily reading of either a levelled book or a book from the classroom or library (levelled books are changed each Monday). The aim is to read a minimum of 5 times in a week for 10 - 15 minutes each time. This will help your child build fluency in reading. Children will have weekly spellings to learn and will come home with a spelling plan at the beginning of each half term. In addition to this, they will also need to practise key words from Key Stage 2 spelling lists. Your child will come home with the words they need to practise. Maths homework centres around fluency. Children can practise learning their times tables and other number facts online using their Times Table Rock Stars account.


We also hand out knowledge organisers to learn and set half termly homework projects based upon the upcoming focus in class. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead full of interesting and engaging learning. During half term six, our topic is  based around the book called 'The Boy at the Back of the Class'.


If there is any information that you can't find on our class page please get in touch with the school office by email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Take a look at our most recent learning...

Year 6 visit to Crucial Crew

Year 6 went on a great trip to the Lifewise Centre to take part in Crucial Crew. We got to experience a court room and role play in a magistrates’ court before seeing what a real prison cell looks like. We also had talks from the fire service about fire safety, anti-social behaviour and hoax calls. The police spoke to us about children being involved in crime and how to keep safe near water. We even spoke to a bus driver about being safe and respectful on buses as we get older and gain more independence!

Science Week

What a super science week we have had in Y6 this week! Creating lava lamps, skittle rainbows and attempting to save an ice cube from melting.

Y5/6 Visit to Filey

Y5/6 had an amazing day out visiting Filey. We walked along the headland and were able to spot where parts of the rock had eroded. We then walked along the beach and found lots of interesting rocks, some of us even found fossils! We put our Geography skills to the test and were able to name lots of physical and human features. What a great day we had!
