Purple 2023 - 2024

Mrs Sutcliffe

Mr German

Welcome to Purple Class

We are year 6

'Where only our best is enough'

Hello everyone and welcome to our class page.

Important information



PE day is now MONDAY and TUESDAY - please ensure you come in PE kit uniform on these days.

Please have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given online homework. This homework is on top of the children learning spellings, accessing Times Tables Rockstars and reading. The online homework will usually consist of maths homework on Maths.co.uk and grammar homework on Spag.com. Homework will be set on a Friday and needs completing by the following Wednesday. This will be checked and the children are expected to have completed this. 

Children should be learning spellings every week.  The list is on Teams. Children also have a spelling task sheet in their homework book from which they can select a task that they feel helps them to learn their spellings. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts. There will no longer be weekly spelling tests however children must continue working on their spellings each week at home and will continue to do so every day in class. 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons. Children should be going on TTRockstars every night.


Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day. 

We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read. If they are not signed, children will miss some of their golden time to read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home.

At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.

The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too.

Attendance matters and everyday counts! Please ensure your child arrives on time and is ready for the school day ahead. If you have a problem, please let me know as soon as possible. Missing school means missing learning and learning builds from one day to another.
