At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog. A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within year 6.




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

Year 6 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.

6S Class Blog


It has been another very busy week for the whole of year 6!


This week in Maths we have been continued to look at using algebra to solve missing number, patterns and simultaneous equations. All of the year 6 teachers were impressed by how everyone managed to their times tables knowledge to answer some difficult questions!


In English we have continued to use our new focus book – The House With Chicken Legs. This week we have written our own diary entries. We wrote our diary entries based upon different characters in the book, including a new character – Benjamin. There was some excellent writing, and more high quality work that can go on display!


 We have continued our new History Topic – our question for this term is ‘Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important?’ This week we looked at the importance of the Royal Navy, we discovered that despite Germany having an advantage in the air, Britain had a stronger navy. We then investigated the factors that made invading Britain so difficult.


In science our new topic is the circulatory system. We began by looking at the heart and how it affects the circulatory system. We discovered that each day the heart has 100,000 beats, channels 2000 gallons along 60,000 miles of blood vessels!


In RE this week we have looked at ‘eternity’ and asked if anything is eternal? The class then identified different ideas as to what they each thought could be eternal and what could not be eternal.


This week in computing we have been looking at search engines and how they can be used safely. We looked at two different websites and checked whether the information matched. We also used search engines to clarify whether information was true or false. 


Have a good weekend everyone!
