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.

6O 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.

Class Blog 2.2.24



This week we have evaluated the topics wed have covered so far in History and Science.

‘World War 2 has been my favourite topic so far.’ FF

The children were able to recall key facts and, give reasoned justifications about what they have explored. They were able to critique situations. Identifying what went well and give reflection upon the decisions that were made at the time.

‘Britain came together to help support the cause, they must have been scared, confused but determined to win.’  DO

‘Winston Churchill gave speeches to the nation offering reassurance and motivation.’ EB


In Science: Animals and their Habitats.

‘We investigated the works of key scientist such as Carl Linnaeus and how animals, plants and microorganisms were classified.’ AN

‘We conducted our own research by collecting and classifying leaves using our own branching tree diagram.’ AH

We were happy to take home our volcanoes that was part of our D.T topic. Some of us said we were going to ‘conduct our own experiments at home to make them erupt.’ KI
