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.

6S 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 a busy first week for year 6!  A huge thank you to everyone for all of their hard work and well done to those who accessed and completed any online work set.  


It is incredibly important that all children access and complete any work set online. This enables your child to continue to progress whilst being away from the classroom. If you have any concerns or queries regarding online learning, or if you require a learning pack, please do not hesitate to contact the school. 


This week in Maths we have looked at the four quadrants, translation and reflection. The children began by using the four quadrants to plot coordinates, then moved on to using the four quadrants to translate and reflect 2-D shapes


 We have started our new history topic looking at the 2021 census. We began by using local census data to plot and compare graphs on age and population. We then looked at how the NHS is impacted by the census, and why the census leads to funding.


In science we have begun to look at ‘Animals including Humans’- specifically, the circulatory system. We began by looking at the heart and then forms of blood transport, including capillaries, veins and arteries


In RE, Year 6 we have focused on the question: ‘Is anything eternal?’ We began by looking at what the children thought eternal meant – something that lasts forever. Then we categorised different object that could, are and should be eternal.  


Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
