6S Class Page
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.

It is hard to believe we have already had 2 weeks in year 6 already!
In Maths this week we have been learning about negative numbers and rounding. We have also been recapping our multiplication knowledge too!
In English we have written our own creation stories after exploring the Mayan creation story last week.
Our topic this term is The Mayan's and we have begun our learning by exploring the geographical area of this civilisation. We also had some great pieces of research children completed in the Summer holidays - many house points were earned for this!
In Science we have been finding out about electricity and circuits. We recorded our results when we constructed a variety of circuits that included motors, bulbs and switches.
We were also lucky enough this week, to participate in the Life Support Roadshow. We learned many life saving skills and earned a certificate.
