Mrs Sutcliffe

Welcome to Purple Class

Teacher: Mrs Sutcliffe

We are year 6

Welcome back to the Spring Term!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas holiday!


Welcome back everyone, I hope you had a great break and are ready to come back for lots of learning! I have to say that everyone looked very smart on their first day back! If you would like to see what we are learning this half term, please look at the curriculum page of our website.

Parents and carers; if you have any questions, please catch me before or after school or give me a call. You can also email the purple class email address but there may be a delay in reply on there.


I'm looking forward to a term of lots of new learning, consolidation and fun!

Mrs Sutcliffe


Important information


PE days are Tuesday and Friday - 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:

Homework is now set on Microsoft Teams - if you have any problems accessing this please let me know.

Children should be learning spellings every week.  The list is on Teams. Children also have a spelling task sheet in their homeowork 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. 

Important information

Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school expect for stud earrings and watches.

Children MUST have long hair tied up - this is both boys and girls and includes fringes over the face.

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.

Contact Information

Can I please remind you to double check with the office that your contact details are up-to-date. Newsletters are on the website and have lots of key information and dates for you. Please make sure you are checking these regularly. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Remote Learning

If your child is isolating, please make sure you email their work each day to purplehw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk ! You will find the work to complete on the joint remote learning page for UKS2 on the class pages section of the website. I look forward to seeing the work your child completes and keeping in touch with them whilst they are learning at home!

Thank you,

Mrs Sutcliffe.
