Year 6 Update 13.10.17

Another good week in Year 6, we have mastered the 'chunking' strategy to divide 4 digit numbers and can apply it to reasoning. We have continued to read our class novel Holes and study 'Way Home' in English lessons putting ourselves into the shoes of the main character Shane.


This week children were given their words for the Harvest Celebration, I have attached the words below so If anybody hasn't brought them home then they can access them here. Year 6 will be delivering Harvest gifts in the community next week, a permission slip will be sent home on Monday.


Thank you to the group of parents who attended the Year 5&6 mathematics session. As a parent, It is so important to have an understanding of the expectations and how your child is being taught in order that you can support their learning at home. We hope you found the session useful and if you have any further question, please don't hesitate to ask.

Reminders for next week

Reading homework is a minimum of 3x30 minutes per week

Harvest words need to be learnt off by heart

Harvest Celebration is on Tuesday afternoon

Harvest Delivery Tuesday and Wednesday (practise your best smiles)

Thursday is non uniform day for PTFA hamper donations, the Year 6 hamper is blue.

Year 6 Update 6.10.17

Another great week in Year 6, we are really immersed in our class novel 'Holes' and have been tackling BODMAS in Maths.

The Blue Watch from Fire Service came in to talk to us about Halloween and Bonfire safety, we listened really carefully and asked very mature and interesting questions.

Keep following us on twitter and looking at the class page for regular updates and photographs.


There isn't a reasoning Maths challenge for this week so please really focus on your multiplications, spellings and sustained reading (at least 3x30 minutes)

Reminders for next week:

Suitable clothing for outdoor learning with Miss Holmes on Wednesday

Have a great weekend!



Year 6 Update 29.09.17

What a busy week we've had up in Year 6, we are really getting into our class novel 'Holes' and have focussed on prime numbers, factors and multiples in Maths.

The Macmillan Coffee Morning was fantastic, the class hosted the event brilliantly and many of our guests commented on their excellent behaviour and exceptional manners. Well Done Year 6 smiley


The Autumn Term spellings for home learning are now available below, please learn these on a regular basis and discuss the vocabulary, 'do you know what all of the words mean?'

The Maths Reasoning challenge this week is Prime factors and multiples - have a go and record your challenge in your diary. (I have adapted the file so it should be accessible, please let me know if there are formatting issues and I will print a copy for you to take home)


Reminders for next week:

  • We will be learning about The journey of a River on Wednesday and will be venturing outdoors to the Secret Garden, please bring a coat and suitable outdoor shoes.
  • Parent Pop in is Thursday 5th October - please come upstairs and see Year 6.
