In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this term! Please have a browse.
Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.
At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog. A fortnightly update of all the exciting things that happen within 6S.
Children in year 6 are expected to read at home each day, either to a family member or independently. Please ensure reading records are brought to school daily and signed when your child has read. We are then able to write in them when they read with adults in school. As a result of this, they will earn their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum reading certificates, plus a free book.
Year 6 also participate in Reading Challenge and answer quizzes on each book they read. The challenge for each child is to read 1 million words before the end of the school year, in order to win themselves free pizza.
6S are reading lots in school, please continue to read with them at home to help them reach their target!
6S will have weekly P.E. although sometimes the day it is on may change. Therefore please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Your child will need a white T-shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear (trainers/plimsolls). In the winter months your child can wear black tracksuit bottoms and a jumper. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

This week in English we have still been continuing our work using 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll and writing diary entries for different characters.
In Maths we have been solving problems involving fractions, decimals and percentages. We have also been finding equivalent fractions (which has been tricky) but we are getting quicker on simplifying using find the lowest common denominator.
In Science we have been writing a biography on Mary Anning after completing research about her on her life and why her findings as a fossil hunter were so important.
Yesterday we had another Careers Day, organised by Mrs Watson. We listened to speakers regarding their jobs and the skills they needed to get where they are. It was very enjoyable and gave us lots to think about!
Also this week we have been working on internet safety in respect of Safer Internet Day on the 6th February. We have been exploring the reasons on why it is so important to make the right choices about our online behaviour.
Have a great half term!
