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.
6S 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.

It has been another busy week for the whole of year 6! It has been a fantastic third week back. Thank you to everyone for all of their hard work and well done to those who accessed and completed any online work.
This week in Maths we have been looking at shape. We began by looking at finding the angles of quadrilaterals, then moved onto compound shapes and triangles. The year 6 teachers were impressed by how everyone managed to remember that the angles on a straight line and inside a triangle are 180° whilst quadrilaterals are 360°.
In English we have continued to look at our focus book – Cloud Busting. This week we have written our explanation guide to dealing with lunchtime at secondary school! There was some excellent writing, and more high quality work that can go on display!
We have continued our new Geography Topic – with our question for this term being ‘Why does Sylvia have the largest collection of bath ducks in the world?’
We have researched the charity ‘KIDS AGAINST PLASTIC’ and saw that they are working hard to end the use of single-use plastics around the country. As a nation, schools in England are attempting to go plastic free by 2022.
In science we have begun to look at ‘Evolution and Inheritance’. We began by looked at inherited characteristics between family members and how Charles Darwin developed his Theory of Evolution. We have now moved on to looking at how adaptation was first discovered in the Galapagos Islands, particularly with finches and their various shaped beaks.
Have a good weekend everyone!
