Chesswood Junior School



Hello, Year 6 parents!

Firstly, I would just like to express what a joy the children have been thus far! They have all settled back into school so well and are working extremely hard! The work they have been producing has been to a fantastic standard - long may it continue! I have really enjoyed teaching them the past few weeks and cannot wait to share their last year at Chesswood with them!

Please watch the video below to find out more about Year 6 and click on the link below to view the Powerpoint behind me, which I know is hard to see. The children will tell you two things: I talk a lot and our whiteboard is not the best hence why it is attached!

I hope it is not too long until I can meet you all in person. If you would like to email me, please contact me at:

Keep safe, 

Miss Wadge :)

Welcome to 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 me with any other work or information you would like me to know about you. The postcard template and all of the instructions are below.

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. 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!


That’s all for now – we can’t wait to see you in September. Until then, stay safe, have a great summer, and we'll see you soon.


We are one of four local schools that are involved in the South Downs Project, a lottery-funded partnership with The Friends of the South Downs and four local schools: Bury, Shipley, Findon and us! To give the project some momentum, the project lead, Chris,  has decided to run a summer competition for Year 4, 5 and 6 children.  As the only participating school in Worthing, we have an important role in recording local memories before they are lost! The focus is on Chesswood pupils recording local residents speak about their childhood, working life and memories of key historical events. See the letter attached for more information and all competition details. Last but not least... Good luck! 


A quick note from me to say hello...

Dear 6EW, 

I cannot wait to have you as my class as you come up into Year 6! I am so excited to get to know all of you, for you to get to know me, and to see all of your incredible work throughout the year!

We have so many exciting topics for you to look forward to as you come up into Year 6; from World War 2, The Egyptians, 'Wonder' by R.J. Palacio and Goblin Cars, to name just a handful! I hope you are as excited as I am to learn about new topics and build on what you already know from Year 5 and your prior years at Chesswood. 

I think Year 6 is such a special year and I feel very lucky to be your class teacher and be able to see you grow throughout the year. Let us work hard and create some wonderful memories that you can take with your forward into your future. I hope you have a wonderful summer and I cannot wait to hear all about what you have been up to when we meet properly in September. In the meantime, if you have any questions or worries please feel free to send me an email!

From, Miss Wadge :)

would love to make our classroom as special as possible, so for you to do at home over the summer I have attached two colouring packs. You may choose the picture you would like to colour in and you can either email the finished design to me or bring it into school in September. You could even create your own poster using a quote that inspires you if you so wish. I cannot wait to see what you come up with! Try to make them as colourful as possible so we can really bring 6EW to life!
