Reading Books

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.  


Each Year 6 pupil is aiming to have read 12 books by the end of each term. If completed the pupils will receive a reward. If pupil read 12 books in each of the three academic terms they will receive a final reward at the end of the year.

6S are reading lots in school, please continue to read with them at home to help them reach their target!


P.E Days

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.

6S Class Blog


It has been another very busy week for the whole of year 6!


In maths this week we have been revising our knowledge algebra and ratio. We have been calculating the answers to simultaneous equations and correctly working out the nth term  – the year 6 teachers were impressed by the children’s methodology when working out some of the more complex expressions.


In English year 6 have continued to use our focus book – A Midsummer Nights Dream. This week we have written a newspaper report outlining a criminal using poison in the Athenian forest. There was some excellent writing and some impressive use of narrative to break up any extended dialogue!   


 We have continued our new Geography topic based on rivers – our question for this term is ‘What is a river?’ This week we looked at the water cycle, and identified the key features. We learnt that the water cycle is particularly special as it is self-sufficient.


In science we have begun to look at microorganisms. We identified where we find them and the difference between positive and negative microorganisms. Year 6 found it interesting that there were even foods that had live microorganisms including bacteria.   


This week in computing we have been using Logo to begin creating our own code to from patterns and shapes. We began by making some simple 2-D shapes but before long we had some excellent 3-D shapes and patterns.


Have a good weekend everyone!
