Year 6 Update 17.11.17

We have had a great week in Year 6. Lots of hard work and energy in lessons. The children had a great session on Monday when we watched a performance of Wolves in the Wall to start our English. We have worked collaboratively with Year 5 in English and will continue to do so next week. Our reading swap shop is very popular, children are engaged with the concept and are happily recommending books to each other and sharing. Thank you to all of the children who have contributed so far. In Diversity week we have had some mature and indepth discussions around the quote 'We are all born free and equal' Year 6 have discussed what every child's entitlement should be no matter what.

Children in Need day began with a lively and energetic fitness assembly with Miss Parr and Pudsey, thank you for your support.

We have auditioned for the production 'Christmas is forever' today and parts have been cast. We ask that children work really hard to learn their lines off by heart. Information regarding costumes, after school rehearsals and additional dance parts will be finalised next week.


Homework is as usual - Autumn Term spellings, multiplications and sustained reading for 3x 30 minutes.


Enjoy the weekend

Year 6 Update 10.11.17

It's been a busy week in Year 6, the children have worked incredibly hard, selling poppies and other poppy items for Remembrance.

We have written our class charter and as a class, the children have decided how they think they should behave around school as role models for our younger pupils.

In English we have been using song lyrics to develop our reading skills, we also did a little bit of singing along as wellsmiley

We are taking part in Barvember which is a daily bar model challenge from The White Rose Maths Hub, it is embedding our application of the bar model strategy (as discussed at the recent Maths strategy parents meeting)


Weekly home learning is:

Reading 3x30 minutes per week (minimum)

Practise times table and division facts so they can be recalled instantly (up to 12x)

Y6 Autumn Term spellings (see below for the list)

We will be having weekly challenge tests to monitor children's progress in their home learning  

It is crucial that children are supported in completing these tasks daily and embedding their skills.


Year 6 update 3.11.17

Another busy week in Year 6, we started off with an enthusiastic writing session advertising Spooky products for Terror TV

We have focussed on fractions this week and are beginning to embed using the bar model to solve problems. Next week we will be taking part in White Rose Hub Barvember - a daily challenge using the bar model.


Please continue to practise the multiplications and division facts for times tables up to 12, these are crucial in supporting children in accessing the maths curriculum.


Children have brought home an audition letter and rehearsal script in preparation for 'Christmas is Forever' this years KS2 performance.


Please make an appointment for our upcoming parents day meetings

Homework is to learn the Autumn term spellings, practise all multiplications off by heart and to read 3x30 minutes per week


Have a great weekend

Year 6 update 19.10.17


Happy Half Term Year 6frown


We have had a busy week, the children sang beautifully in the Harvest Celebration and were excellent representatives of our school when they went out to visit the elder members of the community and deliver gifts. This is working towards our British value for this term 'Contributing to the community'. The children also worked tirelessly to sort the food bank donations and will be visiting the food bank shortly after half term. Thank you to everybody for their kind and generous donations.

A letter was sent home today explaining the Home Learning expectations as explained during 'Meet The Teacher.


Applications for secondary school places are due by 31st October

School is closed tomorrow (Friday)


Have a great half term Year 6


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
