General Information

Year 6's Top Tips!


Your child needs to bring in their PE kit every Monday and take it home every Friday. Please ensure that all parts of their kit are named. Please remember that if your child has long hair they must be able to tie it back for reasons of safety. All earrings and jewellery must be removed or taped for PE lessons.

Please ensure that the children also have a warm PE kit to wear for their outdoor PE lessons. For example, jogging bottoms and a warm fleece or hoodie.




Reading - 4 times a week

Maths - MyMaths homework and TTRockstars

Spelling - two weekly rotation


Water Bottles

It is vital that your children bring in water to keep themselves hydrated. Please ensure that you provide your child with a water bottle each day. We have a water bottle box within the classroom in order for children to be able access their drinks throughout the day.


Celebration Assembly

Celebration Assembly will take place every Friday at 2.50pm. Each week one child from each class will be nominated for a Golden Award by the class team. If your child is nominated you will receive a phonecall on Thursday and will be invited to attend the assembly. We would like you to keep this a secret from your child in order for them to be surprised on the day!



At Cottesmore we believe that effective communication is essential to ensure that your child achieves their full potential. There are various ways in which you can communicate with us as a team. Please feel free to speak directly to your child’s teacher, or speak to a member of the Leadership Team who will always be available at the beginning or end of the school day.


How can I help my child?

Please try and read with your child every day and help them to practise their spellings. We will be rewarding children who consistently complete their spelling and times table homework.

We would encourage you to talk to your child about their learning, this will reinforce their knowledge.
