Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 section of the St Ignatius’ website. In this section of the website we aim to include details that may be useful to parents of Year 6 children, such as homework, help videos, spellings and details of Year 6 routines. We will also showcase a selection of the fantastic work that our talented children have produced.
We believe that the best outcomes for your child are achieved by taking a collaborative approach to their learning; therefore if you need to contact us then please do so before or after school. We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child’s learning journey is a positive one.

In order for your child to make the best possible progress, please ensure that your child reads daily.
