  • Year 6 Notes & Dates

    School day:

    The Year 6 school day starts at 8.40am. Your child needs to enter school through the main gate and walk through the KS2 playground. Staff will direct your child.

    All adults dropping off or picking up children must wear face masks from now on. Thank you. Please ensure you stay two metres away from other families.

    Your child needs to be collected from the KS2 playground at 3.10pm, unless they walk home alone. If your child can walk home alone, please fill out the form that you can collect from the office (this includes those children who walked home alone last year).   

    PE Kits

    School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt. Year 6 will have P.E. on a Monday and a Friday so please ensure that your child wears their P.E kit on these days to school. Please make sure that these are weather appropriate.  


    Children will be set home learning through Mathletics and DB Primary. These  link to learning we are doing in the classroom. We will email you each week to let you know when this is ready.

    Homelearning is set on a Monday, and must be completed by the following Monday.

    Your child has their login details – if you need these again, please email:  wyvern@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    If you have any problems with completing the homelearning tasks, please talk to your teacher at pick up or email your teacher.

    Entry Point and Exit Point:

    Normally, we would invite you to celebrate the learning with us in school. Instead, photos of the children’s learning are shared each week in the school newsletter.


    Symptoms of COVID-19 or of a cold:

    You will be asked to follow the COVID-19 guidance for households with possible infection coronavirus guidance.


    You will be asked to have your child tested for COVID-19 as this could have an impact on our school. This can include testing for all children and their families, if displaying symptoms.
