Teacher: Miss Caldwell
Welcome to our Year 6 Page.
Mrs Forster and I are looking forward to lots of fun, learning and making fantastic memories. The children have settled in well and we know they will achieve so much to be proud of in their final year at St. Anthony of Padua.
The class know me a little already from previous Spanish lessons and their amazing support with Matilda last July, but here is a little information about me:
I love spending time with my family and friends; I am a little cat-crazy, in fact I love most animals; I absolutely love reading, once I start, I can‘t put a book down; you will no doubt know I enjoy singing ,whenever and wherever I find the opportunity; and finally, my favourite sport is skiing!
Mrs Forster is also an avid reader and loves nothing more than getting stuck in a good book, she loves her holidays and spending time with her family and friends and is, in my opinion, our very own school fashion icon!
We are looking forward to all of our events and lessons this year. We love those ‘lightbulb moments’ we get to see every day and are excited to watch you all continue to grow in confidence as you prepare for secondary school next year.
Please come back to our class page, where we will share our learning journey this year.

Year 6 Team
- Year 6 have been given homework books of short 10 minute tests to complete: Monday, Reading; Tuesday, Maths and Wednesday, Grammar.
- We will go through these as a class the following day. Please ensure that your child has the relevant book with them, this will also enable you to see your child’s progress within these subjects. There will be elements of the Year 5 and 6 curriculum that have not been taught yet, please remind your child this, if they find a particular area challenging. Initially, they may need support when completing tasks and this is fine, however the aim is for them to gradually begin to work through questions independently. 10 minutes is also a guideline and to begin with, they may take longer to complete.
- Times Tables will be set on a Monday as 10 games on TTRockstars. These must be completed by the following Monday.
- Each Monday pupils will be given a spelling rule and spelling list which will then be set on Spelling Shed for the following Monday to assess and review during our spelling lesson.
