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 busy week for the whole of year 6!


This week in Maths we have been looking at the four operations and in particular using long division. All of the year 6 teachers were impressed by how everyone managed to use long division to solve difficult maths problems – we had some very tricky questions using decimals to divide!


In English we have continued to use our focus book – The Explorer. This week we been using instructional texts. We wrote our set of instructions on how to build a raft that could be used in the Amazon. There was some excellent writing, and more high quality work that can go on display!


In Topic, we have continued to learn about the Maya’s. This week we looked at a game they used to play  - Pok-a-tok. It has some very peculiar rules, such as you can only use your hips and chest! Plus you would not want to be the losing captain. In Maya the losing captain was executed!


In Science lessons we have been planning and conducting our own experiments. We hypothesised whether wire length has any impact on the components of a circuit. After lots of testing, the results showed that wire length had NO impact on the components of a circuit.    


Have a good weekend everyone!
