Y6 Magnolia

Welcome to Y6 Magnolia



Teacher: Mr Tumilty (Mr Pasdari - Thursdays)

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Gilbert & Mrs A


We are really looking forward to getting to know you all through the Autumn term. Year 6 is an exciting year which is jam packed full of experiences and opportunities. We will be working hard throughout the year to ensure that you are ready for secondary school. At times, you will need the determination to work hard and focus, pushing yourself to meet your own goals, but you will also have a lot of fun along the way as we find out more about ourselves and our ambitions for the future. This is your last year at Firs, so make the most of every moment!  


If you need to speak to a member of the Year 6 team regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact us.   Make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search #Y6Magnolia to keep track of all our fun activities and work we produce each week! 

Weekly Reminders


  • Monday - PE - You should arrive in school in full P.E. kit (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or plain black tracksuit bottoms during the winter months with trainers or black pumps). Regular school uniform is not required on this day, though a school jumper can be worn over the yellow PE top for comfort during lessons.  
  • Wednesday- Homework books to be handed in.
  • Thursday - Spelling Test (Spellings will have been given the previous Friday to learn as part of the homework)
  • Friday- Reading Records handed in. Children will also receive their homework on Friday, with tasks to be completed at home.


If there are changes to the weekly routine or there are any issues that arise, please let us know by contacting school either by phone or email-  The admin team are always happy to forward your emails onto class teachers. 


Our Y6 Magnolia Classroom

Our Reading Area


As a school, we have a huge focus on reading for pleasure. It is crucial that children in year 6 read regularly, and that the texts they are choosing are appropriate and challenging for their own level. Please see below a suggested reading list for year 6 - full of fantastic books which should challenge and excite them! Happy reading! 

Street Child

Street child - The Shilling pie.mp3

Street Child is one of my favourite books to read in Year6 and it links perfectly with our class topic of The Victorians. Chapter one, The Shilling Pie, read by Mrs Gilbert, will introduce you to the main character Jim Jarvis.

Our Art Gallery


Art is a lesson that we love to express our creativity. Sometime our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is linked to festivals and celebrations in the calendar. Our units this year will be closely linked to drawing, printing and sculpting. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us! We hope you enjoy the images of our work that will be shared on here and our twitter page througout the year.

Methods In Maths


We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.

Here is a copy of the new Numeracy Framework for Y6 to help you understand what your child will be learning and when.

Here is a copy of the Year 6 expectations - this covers what children will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home!
