At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog. A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within year 6.




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 pupils read 12 books in each of the three academic terms they will receive a final reward at the end of the year.

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


P.E Days

Year 6 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.

6I Class Blog


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


This week in Maths we have been learning how to calculate missing angles across straight lines and traingles. The year 6 teachers threw in some difficult questions to see if we could catch out the children, but they did very well to answer all of the fluency and problem solving questions.


In English we have continued to look at our focus book – The House With Chicken Legs. This week we have written our own poems based on the gate and Baba Yaga!


 We have continued our new Geography Topic – with our question for this term being ‘How is climate change affecting the world?’  This week we have been looking at Greenhouse gases and how they affect our planet. We then continued to look at the impact of climate change globally, such as rises in sea temperatures, an increased numbers of droughts and heatwaves, and a rise in infectious diseases. We discussed differing views and came to our own conclusions.


In science we have continued our topic centred upon inheritance and evolution. We looked at the term inheritance: the characteristics offspring inherit from their parents and adaptation: characteristics that are influenced by an environment. We have been looking at the ways animals and plants have adapted and evolved in order to survive on Earth.


In Design and Technology we are focusing on the question ‘How can we design a machine to collect mineral nodules sustainably’ we began by looking at a mineral called cobalt and how it is in almost everything we use today.


Have a good weekend everyone!
