Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher – Miss Elgie
We would like every child in Year 6 to reach their full potential and to enjoy their final year in Holy Family School. Children will develop their skills and knowledge throughout the year to help them to become independent, life-long learners.
There are many opportunities throughout Year 6 for pupils to develop their confidence, resilience and their organisation skills. Children will be able to apply for positions as School Councillors, Mini Vinnies, House Captains and Sports Leaders. They will have the opportunity to organise events to raise money for charity and they will be partnered with a child in Reception Class, who will become their ‘ buddy’. During ‘buddy time’, Year 6 will have play times with their new friends, help them to read their library books and sit with them during Mass.
To find out more about our class routines and curriculum, please visit our Class Information page. We also have some really fun resources and activities on our At Home page, click the images above.
On this page and via Class Dojo we will share class activities and events throughout the school year. Please see below for more information about Class Dojo and how to join us.
Class Dojo – The Class Dojo App works via tablets, smart phones and computers and is free to download. Using this system we will be able to share images of your child and their work and we look forward to opening our classroom. If you would like to join, download the Class Dojo App or click the image to open by a web browser, create a parents account, tap add child and enter your child’s code. If you don’t have a code, please contact us by email and we will happily send it to you.
Year 6 invited parents and families to a fundraising coffee afternoon in aid of Macmillan. It was a lovely afternoon and the children really enjoyed looking after everyone. We would like to say thank you for the kind donations of biscuits and cakes. The afternoon raised over £242.00 for the charity.
The class have recently been on a residential trip to a PGL Activity Centre in Newby Wiske. During the trip the children showed their resilience, confidence and team working skills whilst taking part in a range of exciting activities such as archery, laser tag, climbing and zip wire. It was a fantastic trip!
The class PE lessons are held on a Tuesday and Friday.
Children will need to have their PE kit, for details please see our School Uniform page.
We would like to encourage children to regularly read their books at home.

As well as being enjoyable, reading really helps children’s writing ability and general learning.
