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

6I 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 another busy week for the whole of year 6!


In maths we have continued to look at fractions. This week we have looked at using fractions alongside the four operations. We began by looking at addition and subtraction and then moved onto multiplication and division.


We have continued using our Reasoning Rockstars questions too, Year 6 have enjoyed the challenge. Mr Irons, Mrs Smith, Mr Mason and Mrs Banks have been trying to create some challenging new questions!


In English we have continued our focus book for this term – Friend or Foe

We have planned and written our own letter to a soldier captured during World War Two. Reading through them the year 6 teachers were very impressed with the quality of the work!  


We have continued looking at our history topic – Medicine Through Time. This week we investigated the discovery of vaccinations by a man called Edward Jenner. He made his discovery through cow pox, he then created a vaccine for small pox.


We have continued our new science topic – electricity. This week we created our own circuits and then investigated how we can change the brightness of a bulb using Ohm’s Law. We observed that if you keep the power constant but add more bulbs then the circuit gets dimmer.  


Have a good weekend everyone!
