Welcome to our new class page 6EP! I am so looking forward to meeting you all today for our transition afternoon at 2.15-2.45. If you cannot make it, do not worry. I have added the booklet at the bottom of this page for you have a go at working through it over the summer break. Please do feel free to email me if you have any questions or further worries at all. 

Transition event reflections -

Wow! What a brilliant group of fun and inquisitive children we have in our class! I am so excited to work with all of you after the summer break and see what you can all do. 

Thank you for such brilliant questions today - if you are now feeling like you had a strong question to ask please feel free to email me so I can put your mind to rest. I don't want anyone worried over the summer break. 

I have now given you a paper copy of your transition booklet which I would love for you to have a go at filling out (as I showed you) today. Bring this in in September for me to take a look! Remember I am giving you full permission to get creative with it.

Bring on September!




As you may be aware, we are participating in the South Downs Project. This is a  partnership between The Friends of the South Downs and 4 local schools: Bury, Shipley, Findon and Chesswood. To develop momentum, the project leader, Chris, has decided to run a summer competition for years 4, 5 and 6. This will involve Chesswood pupils interviewing local residents about memories they have from their childhood, working life and specific historical events (see: attached letter at the bottom to enter). Good luck!


A message to you and everyone else in year 6...

Hello and welcome to Year 6! We are looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to life at the top of Chesswood – it’s a great adventure!

Firstly, we would love to find out more about you, so we have some super home learning tasks for you to do. Have a look at our Year 6 PowerPoint presentation to find out more.

Once you have completed your postcard task, email them to your class teacher with any other work or information you would like us to know. We would love it if you can read at least 2 books from the lists over summer. This is a great way to start the year feeling confident and earn yourself some extra house points too!

In Year 6, we are all keen readers and we love to share our book recommendations with each other. Check out our reading list to find out loads of brilliant books for you to lose yourself in.



A note from me to get us started...

Dear 6EP,

I am delighted to welcome you as my third class at Chesswood. I am very excited to get to know you all and see what fantastic work you can do! Miss Daly and Miss Carter will be the other adults who will support you all, alongside myself, to be the best you can be in year 6.

We have many engaging topics to look forward to; from ‘Voyage of Discovery’ to Egyptians and Goblin Cars to name but a few! I’m sure you will all be very much looking forward to designing and building your own go-cart.

I am very excited to see you learn and grow in year 6. Enjoy your summer break – I am so excited to hear all about it when we come back in September!

From Miss Price :)
