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.

6S Class Blog


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


In maths we have been using negative numbers. We began by ordering them from smallest to largest, next we used negative numbers and the four operations. Finally we have also used them to answer reasoning and problem solving questions.

We have continued using our Reasoning Rockstars questions too, Year 6 have enjoyed a new 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 diary recount. Reading through them the year 6 teachers were very impressed with the quality of the work!  


We have begun looking at our history topic – Medicine Through Time. We began by creating a timeline identifying some of the most important and influential medical discoveries over the last 700 hundred years. Furthermore, we began planning an answer to the question Why was life expectancy only 40 years in Britain in 1840 – 10,840 years later!? Year 6 identified lots of factors including a lack of medical knowledge, poor social housing, war and the industrial revolution.


We have begun our new science topic – electricity. We started by creating our own circuits and then finding problems with circuits that did not work.


Have a good weekend everyone!
