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 another busy week for year 6!
This week in Maths we have recapped work on fraction, decimal and percentage equivalence – focusing being able to convert, compare and order fractions, decimals and percentages. Year 6 used these skills across a range of problem questions.
We have continued our new history topic looking the Battle of Britain during the Second World War. Our enquiry question is: Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important? We began by investigating how serious the risk of invasion was in 1940 by Nazi Germany. Next, the children investigated the steps Britain and Germany went through leading up to the Battle of Britain in 1940.
In English we continued to use our focus book ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’. This week year 6 wrote a narrative incorporating dialogue from Olive’s perspective. There was some excellent work that can be placed on display.
In science we have begun to look at ‘Animals including Humans’- specifically, the circulatory system. We began by looking at the heart and then forms of blood transport, including capillaries, veins and arteries. This week, Year 6 dissected a heart and were able to label the different sections, including the ventricles and the atriums.
In RE, Year 6 we have focused on the question: ‘Is anything eternal?’ We began by looking at what the children thought eternal meant – something that lasts forever. Then we categorised different object that could, are and should be eternal.
Lastly, year 6 have conducted some work on the census. The UK census is completed every 10 years, and as a school, we are completing our own census to find out some of the fantastic information about the different year groups.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
