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 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!


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.

It has been a busy week for year 6!


This week the children have been completing maths investigations into a number of different topics.


 Year 6 have been investigating the Cold War and the space race between the USA and USSR. The children looked at the beginning of the cold war (a war with no physical battle). Next, the children investigated Sputnik 1 and 2, including sending a dog into space.


In English we have investigated poetry that is linked to our science topic – space. This week the children are writing their own poems linked to space.  

In science the children have investigated space.


This week the children looked at the planets and the sun. Next, year 6 investigated the life cycle of a star – it begins as a protostar before ending as a neutron star or black hole.


This week, Mr Coulsen organised a sports day for each year group. The children participated in a number of different events and competed beautifully – there were some very close sprint races!


Have a fantastic weekend and an excellent summer everyone!
