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!

 

P.E

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/plimpsolls).  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.

What an exciting first week back at school for Year 6!

Monday began with our trip to the Natural History Museum. We had a lovely day, exploring all of the interesting exhibits. ‘I really enjoyed the different types of dinosaurs as well as the moving T Rex’ MB

‘I loved the area that had the minerals and rocks. Some of them looked so pretty and very valuable.’ AA

Many of us especially enjoyed the mammal section where the huge blue whale was on display. We wanted to spend lots of our time here to explore further.

When we moved to the earthquake and volcano section of the museum, we were luck enough to try out the earthquake simulation. ‘I am so glad we do not live in a country where serious earthquakes occur.’ AH

As part of our new Geography topic, we began to look at the effects of climate change and how it can impact upon people’s lives.

Today, we have had a magistrate’s workshop arranged by Mrs Wallace. We worked together to do a mock trial. We learnt you can be a judge as long as you are between the ages of 18-75. We were surprised to learn about the role of the jury and the decisions they need to make.
