Year 6 Information

Welcome to Year 6

As this is your final year at St Paul’s, you will be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g yourself in all sorts of new and exciting ways. You will have some extra privileges, lots of interesting topics to learn about, as well as some excellent trips and events. In order to get the most out of this year, you will need to be fully prepared. So read on…

Equipment

Please make sure you have all of the following equipment when you come back in September. We will be checking the first week back. Please ensure it is all labelled as much as possible with your name as many people will have the same equipment.

  • At least 1 handwriting pen (not biro) We prefer fountain (cartridge) pen in Year 6.
  • Spare cartridges for your pen
  • Pencil, rubber and sharpener
  • 30cm ruler
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Whiteboard marker
  • Clear protractor
  • Colouring pencils
  • Colouring pens
  • Ring binder or A4 folder for transporting homework (very important)
  • Sticky back plastic for covering learning journals throughout the year

Over the year equipment will run out. Please ask your parents to replace your things when they run out or get lost!

PE and Games

You will need to bring in your full PE equipment in every day. Please make sure it is all labelled with your name on using a pen that will not wash off! Bring it in on a Monday and take it home to be washed on a Friday. Remember – it’s your responsibility to bring it in (not mum’s, dad’s, granny’s, the dog’s etc…). Our PE days will change throughout the year which means you will need to bring it in every day, not just on our regular PE days.

Homework diaries

You will receive a new one of these in September. Please make sure it goes home every day, as it may have important messages inside (as well as homework of course!)

These will need to be signed by your parents every week.
