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!


This week in Maths we have continued looking at shape. Firstly, we looked at calculating the angles in a triangle and quadrilaterals, as an extra challenge we then calculated missing angles in a variety of shapes. The year 6 teachers the tried to catch out some children by using algebra to calculate missing angles! All of the year 6 teachers were impressed by how everyone managed to answer some difficult questions especially involving algebra!


In English we have continued to use our new focus book – The House With Chicken Legs. This week we have written our own narrative primarily trying to be as dramatic as possible. We had to make sure we used our all of the ingredients of a dramatic text. There was some excellent writing, and more high quality work that can go on display!


 We have continued our new History Topic – our question for this term is ‘Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important?’ This week we looked at the factors most important in leading Britain to win the Battle of Britain. We identified factors ranging from the way in which British planes were built to the distance travelled by the Luftwaffe in order to fight. Year 6 found the investigation very interesting and the year 6 teachers are hoping for some excellent writing.   


This week in computing we have been looking at search engines and how they can be used safely. We looked at two different websites and checked whether the information matched. We also used search engines to clarify whether information was true or false.


Finally, this week Year 5 and 6 had a fantastic careers day! We met six hugely interesting people with equally fascinating jobs. They gave all of us lots of excellent advice for the future and even inspired a few of the children too.


Have a good weekend everyone!
