We are delighted to welcome you our Year 6 class page. Mrs Sheffield, Mr Bannon, Mrs Day and Mr Norwood are thrilled to be guiding the class of 2023-2024 through their final year at SMITH. We are joined by the wonderful Mrs Alleyne and Miss Ambrose as our Learning Support Assistants. We’re work very closely as a team, so feel free to speak to any of us!
In Year 6, we provide our children with so many different personal development opportunities for enrichment and leadership:
- We have used our understanding of democracy and will hold elections for house captains and vice captains for our four houses: Dingle, Mersey, Aigburth and Sefton.
- Children will be given the opportunity to apply for roles as school buddies and will be supporting younger children around the KS1 and KS2 buildings.
- Teachers have been busy planning a plethora of school trips across the school year. Children will have the opportunity to visit the International Slavery Museum, London and, of course, our highly anticipated PGL residential.
Please see the links before to see the Y6 passport, our current curriculum newsletter and topic webs as well as useful links for National Curriculum documentation.

In Year 6, the children will have many opportunities to engage with the extra-curricular elements of school life. The passport below covers some of the tasks that we will complete throughout the year.
Working with parents
While we are looking forward to working with your children this year, we are also looking forward to working with our wonderful parents. We believe that in order for children to achieve, there needs to be a strong working relationship between home and school. We have expectations for all of our school community. Please find the Year 6 Parent Code of Conduct below.
