We would like to welcome you back to what we know will be an EPIC Year. We hope you are well and that the children are ready for another busy school year.
The Year 6 team this year are:
Mrs Blake as Year 5 and 6 lead.
6T - Mr Tookey
6H - Miss Huggins
Also in our team are: Mrs Lancaster, Mrs Mayow, Mrs Keddle, Miss Oakley and Miss Newman.
As a school we love to read and think this is really important. It is the expectation that children read for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record each day that they read. The children must then return their record to school each day in order for their home reading to be recorded. The children can borrow books from their classroom or the school library. The children should be completing accelerated reader quizzes, when they have finished their book, and are working towards prizes in their class. As well as this, the children can earn badges for each time they read at home.
You can access accelerated reader here -
This term, we require the children to bring their PE kits into school on their outdoor PE day. This should include joggers, shorts or leggings with a house t-shirt or plain t-shirt and a hoodie or jacket for when it is cold outside. We will also incorporating being active within our lessons and brain breaks - increasing how often the children are being active within the school day.
Indoor (don’t need kit- shoes and socks off): Monday
Outdoor (need kit): Friday

Pupil Voice in Year 6
"I've thoroughly enjoyed PE, particularly tennis. I learnt how to grip the racket correctly which enabled me to use both sides of the racket." Ella, Class 6T
"In Year 6, I have loved my art units; perspective was a personal favourite of mine. I learnt how to draw faces in proportion and how to include all the finer details. I can't wait to continue improving next year!" Yoana, Class 6T
"Captaining the football team this year has been a huge honour. It has taught me how to be a good role model and that I should believe in myself." Ashton, Class 6T and House Captain
"Maths is my favourite subject! This year, I have secured my knowledge of place value with decimals as well as working with fractions and calculating mentally." Logan, Class 6T

Sophia, 6H, House Captain
“I’ve loved playing for girls’ football team this year and it’s been an honour to represent Sprinbank Primary Academy.”
“My favourite subject has been learning about the Golden Age of Islam and the legacy that it has left behind. I have learnt how much of an impact it had on Britain today such as universities, medicine, the number system and much more!”
Ruby H, 6H, House Captain
“My favourite subject this year has been History and, in particular, our unit on the Vikings. I enjoyed comparing how we live now to how the Vikings used to live.”
