Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Our topic for this term is 'World War Two' and all the information about what we will be covering will be available in the curriculum booklet.

The home learning grid is available at the bottom of the page.

 

In year 6 this year, our teachers are Miss Read and Mrs Childs. Mrs Aldous and Mrs Jewers are our teaching assistants and Mrs Barker is our HLTA. Children may also be invited to work with Mr Cole within a small group.

World War Two

We have had a great start to our new term, learning about World War Two. Our English lessons are full of links to our topic, through our reading of Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll, as well as our writing. We have written descriptions of being in an air raid, using expanded noun phrases and figurative language.

We have also made air-raid shelters and tested them to see if they would hold a 1kg weight, if a lego man could fit inside and if they were realistic (both inside and out).

2019-20 SATs Parent Information

Please find above the information shared with parents at the SATs information evening.

Home Learning

The home learning grid has been sent home and can be viewed at the bottom of the page. Home learning is due every Friday and, as usual, children who do not hand in home learning will attend a lunchtime detention, where they will be able to complete the missing home learning.

 

Home learning club is available on a Tuesday lunchtime for all children to attend. A member of staff will be available during this time to give any advice and guidance required.

Clubs

Please be aware that if children sign up to one of our clubs, we expect them to attend every week. Any non-attendance will need to be reported to the office by a parent/carer. This is especially important to children in years 5 and 6 who have permission to walk by themselves. Thank you.

Times Tables Rockstars

We have a competition running for all children in years 2-6, which aims to improve the children's times tables knowledge using the Times Tables Rockstars website.

 

Each week, the child with the highest correct answers in their class will be awarded with a certificate, which will be displayed on our Rockstars board. At the end of the week, they will be able to bring this home. 

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural understanding in Year 6

 

  • Our topic 'The Blue Planet' allows us lots of opportunity to discuss our world and the way we treat it, especially with regards to rivers and oceans. We will be looking in detail at plastic pollution and the effects it has.
  • We have talked a lot about weird and wonderful sea creatures from around the world and we have been been 'wowed' by their features.
  • Throughout the year we will be taking part in the School's Accumulator Challenge for St Elizabeth Hospice. Here we will be looking at ways to turn £30 into lots more funds for this charity.
  • We will continue to have fortnightly class council meetings for us all to share our ideas and our school council representatives will then take these to school council meetings.
  • In Year 6, some of us have the extra responsibility of being head boy, head girl, a prefect or a house captain. These require great leadership skills and for us to be role models for the rest of the school.
