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 week back for year 6! A huge thank you to everyone for all of their hard work and well done to those who accessed and completed any online work set.
It is incredibly important that all children access and complete any work set online. This enables your child to continue to progress whilst being away from the classroom. If you have any concerns or queries regarding online learning, or if you require a learning pack, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
This week in Maths we have looked at ratio. We began by looking at comparing ratio and fractions, then we moved on to using ratio in worded problems.
We have continued our new Geography Topic – with our question for this term being ‘How do volcanoes affect the lives on people?’ We have looked at some of the geography of Europe, including capital cities, seas and where volcanoes are located. The closest volcano to the UK is in Iceland.
In science we have begun to look at ‘Classifying Living Things’. The children used Branch Diagrams to classify animals of the same animal family or species using particular questions.
In RE, Year 6 have researched the five pillars of Islam and discussed their importance to their faith. So far, we have investigated the pilgrimage to Mecca and the many stages of the pilgrimage that all Muslims expect to do once.
In PSHE, Year 6 have looked at what it means to be eternal? The children discussed objects that can and cannot be eternal, and those objects we wish could be eternal.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
