Firs Primary School

Inspire, believe, achieve!

Year 6 Mr Tumilty

Autumn Newsletter for Year 6

As the oldest children at the Firs Primary, this is an important year for the pupils and I hope they all enjoy their last year at the Firs and work hard in achieving their potential.


This term we are focusing on the Victorian period and what life was like living in Victorian England. There are many interesting facts to discover and learn about and children will be asked to engage in personal research projects later in the term, such as: child workers, technological advancements or crime and punishment!

With this being the children's last year in primary school, it is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare themselves for life at high school. It will be extremely helpful if you are able to continue to support your child at home by continually monitoring reading and progress with any home learning tasks, such as spelling.


I will be in contact with any specific dates and details of any up and coming events but please do not hesitate to come in and talk to me about anything relating to school life.


Many Thanks

Mr. K Pasdari and Mr. D Tumilty
