Hello and welcome to Owl Class! The year 6 class teacher is Mrs Hayden. The children made a terrific start to the school year with a residential to Calshot Activities Centre. This week of adventure encouraged us all to try something new; face our fears with a determination to succeed and build even stronger friendships for the coming year. We encourage the year 6 children to enjoy the greater responsibility that they are awarded as they prepare for the transition to secondary school and of course, to enjoy a fantastic final year at Cheapside.

General notices:

P.E is on Monday and Thursday each week, however, P.E kit may be needed on other days and so it is advisable for it to be in school every day.

Outdoor shoes are required in school at all times so that the children can access the school field at play time.  These can be outdoor trainers or wellies.

Reading books should be in school every day.


Homework is set on a Thursday and should be completed and returned to school by Wednesday.  Currently, homework comprises of weekly maths and topic/ English work. The children are also expected to practise their times tables and can use the ‘times tables rock stars’ website in order to do so.

In addition, children will be given weekly spellings on a Monday to be practised daily, ready for a test the following Monday.


If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I am available after school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

I look forward to a wonderful year ahead!

Mrs Hayden
