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 so it can be included in their termly reading challenge. We can then also 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 an exciting reward. If a pupil reads 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!
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.

It has been a busy first week back for year 6!
This week the children have been completing maths investigations into a number of different topics.
Year 6 began their new History topic looking at the Victorians and the role children played in Victorian England. Our enquiry question is: What was life really like for children in Victorian Britain? We began by investigating Victorian Britain and what role the empire had on its citizens. Year 6 identified that ¼ of all land on earth was part of the British Empire in the 19th century.
Next, year 6 discussed whether we would consider the Victorian era to be a ‘Golden Age’ of discovery or a ‘Dark Age’ of human suffering?
In English we continued to use our focus book ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream. This week year 6 wrote a newspaper report incorporating dialogue. There was some excellent work that can be placed on display.
In science we have begun our new topic ‘Light’. Initially, year 6 looked at the direction light travels and the different forms of light you can see. Next, the children investigated the human eye and how this lets humans see.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
