Welcome to year 6!
Welcome to a new and exciting school year for the Year 6 students - their final year at St. Ambrose.
We've got lots of enjoyable learning to do this year. This page will be updated throughout the year with key information as well as celebrating the learning and achievements of your child's journey in year 6.
Monday 10th May - Friday 14th May - Mental Health Awareness Week

This will be held virtually this year. Here you can view the Powerpoint Presentation.

Weekly spellings will be sent home every Thursday and will be tested the following Tuesday. Please practise daily with your child.
