Welcome to our Class 6 Page!
Year Six is a very busy year because we have a lot to do to prepare for SATs in May and there are several homework books.
It’s a good idea to have a nice big backpack to carry everything in. It is the final year in primary school so there are lots of transition activities in preparation for moving to the comprehensive school as well so it is really important to come to school every day.
Meet your Teachers
I have been a teacher at Thrybergh Primary School since 1997. For most of that time I have taught in Year Six, and to be honest I love teaching year 5 and 6. My most favourite subject to teach is maths, followed closely by Science, P.E. and history.
I live with my husband, Craig and my 12-year-old daughter, Darcie. We also have a rescue greyhound from Owlerton track called Rodney and two very badly-behaved terriers – Marley and Buster. We also have Bobby the Degu so it’s a bit like a zoo at our house.
Darcie and I love horse riding and we have two ponies who take up a lot of our time. My other interests include reading my favourite books which are, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Great Expectations and the Inspector Ryan series by J.L.Ross. As a family we love to go to Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby and the Isle of White using our little touring caravan.
Year 6 Teacher
Hello, my name is Mrs Platts.
I have worked at Thrybergh Primary School for 22 years. I absolutely love my job and as my role of HLTA; I am lucky enough to teach most of the children throughout school. I love watching T.V and reading. I thoroughly enjoy reading Roald Dahl books to the children.
I have three children of my own who are all grown up now. I love spending time with my family especially at Christmas time when we all get together for the day. I enjoy going shopping with my daughter and going out for lunch. I can’t wait for September to see you all again and to meet our new children.
I have worked at Thrybergh Primary School for 24 years. Currently working in a Year 6. I have two children named Alex and Amanda. My hobbies are knitting and reading. My favourite book is Holy Island by L.R. Ross and other books by this author.
Year 6 Teaching Assistant
I am looking forward to working with you in September as I haven’t worked in Year 6 before. I thought I would share some information about myself with you so you can get to know me better.
I have a dog called Otis. He is a two-year-old golden Labrador, who still acts like a puppy! I love to take him on long walks in the countryside; we walk for miles. My favourite place to visit is The Lake District – I go there every year. I think the best time to visit is in winter when there is snow on the ground.

Our New Learning
Next year will be very exciting in year Six we have great topics:
World War 2 in the autumn term, Rainforest in the spring term and Coast to Coast in the summer term which includes our amazing residential visit to Scarborough.
In Year 6 we get to go to Ulley to do rafting and kayaking. In year six we like to do plenty of physical activities if we can so it’s important to bring full P.E. kit every day. You never know when there might be a surprise P.E. lesson!
Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
In Year 6, many children have access to social media accounts. The following link has some guidelines for parents regarding safety online and privacy features. There are many hidden features on social media, so it is always worth being ‘clued up’ with what your child is using and accessing.
