Homework reminder :) Please could you remind your child that ALL their homework needs to be completed and handed in the Wednesday of each week. Thank you.
10.10.2018 - Today I have uploaded quite a few documents onto the Y6 parents page. These documents contain actual past SATs questions. These would be a great thing to look at with your children. The more SATs style questions they encounter the more relaxed and prepared they will be in May. Thanks Miss M :)

Welcome to the Year 6 page, where throughout the year we will be adding lots of useful information and documents to help support your child's learning. The children have made an amazing start to the year and have absolutely risen to the challenge of being the top class of the school. Parents - you should be proud of each and every one of them!
It was lovely to see a few parents at the "Meet the Teacher" session. For those who couldn't make it, I look forward to meeting you soon.
PUSS IN BOOTS PANTO
This morning the whole school had a fantastic time watching a panto! We are officially feeling VERY Christmassy!
This afternoon Year 6 made decorations for the church's Santas grotto! This weekend is the church Christmas fair. Hopefully the children will be able to see their amazing work!
Each Thursday morning Year 6 are having a lesson with Mr Larcombe. These lessons are building on from what children did in Year 5 during their healthy head sessions.
15.11.18 This week we have been working on having in 'Good Character'. We spent some time in class and then went and continued the lesson outside where children took part in some physical activity.
First week back and year 6 had a great time during their archery taster session...we even got two bulls eyes! Well done James and Ed!
In today's science lesson Year 6 did some pretty cool experiments with torches and mirrors. We learnt about how light travels and about how reflection is important for seeing things. We talked about how we use wing mirrors to see behind us when we are driving in a car. Year 6 did and experiment to see if we could use mirrors to see behind us.
Why don't you ask year 6 about eyeballs? They looked at how eyeballs work!
Well well well... It turns out that year 6 are green fingered gardeners!
Not only have they prepared our flower/vegetable patch but they also did great job clearing up all the fallen leaves from the playground and stage! Great job Year 6.
Well year 6 had a great week completing the bike ability course and are now confident on their bikes. ALL children had the opportunity to take part as some kind children lent others their bikes. We really do have some wonderful children in Year 6. Well done everyone!
WOW! How lucky have year 6 been today?! We have spent all afternoon learning how to play the game of Quidditch!
We have learnt lots of different skills... Including learning how to ride a broom stick
Week beginning 09.10.2018 - Wow what a busy week we are having! This Week we have been on bikeability! Everyone in class got to ride bikes on the playground and most people got to go out onto the roads around school! Seriously impressive riding skills!
Whilst each group had their sessions the rest of the class worked on some SATs style questions in Maths and English! We will be doing a lot more of these types of questions in our booster sessions after Christmas!
What a treat we all had today!! Key stage 2 had the pleasure of watch a truly amazing show! We had a theatre group come and act out the hobbit! Some parts had us literally on the edge of our seats and we couldn't believe that only four men played all the parts! It was absolutely fantastic and we can't wait until we can watch another production!
Week beginning 03.09.2018 - First week back and Year 6 are straight into work! We have been working on our place value and rounding skills in Maths and we have also checked our login details are still working for Sumdog... I am expecting all children to login from home this week. In English we have already written an adventure story independently and we have started work in our spelling journals (spellings will be sent home on Friday and tested the following Friday). This weeks guided reading has been slightly different as we have been listening to an audio book! The book is written and read by Michael Morpurgo and is called Running Wild. We will use the basis of this story to write our own stories in a few weeks. All children have checked that their Bug Club logins are working, so no excuses for not reading their Bug Club books!
We haven't even stopped in the afternoons! We have done a lot of work around our class value of 'Self Control'. We have created our own self control super heroes who have tool kits full of things that help people control themselves no matter how they are feeling... from imagining blowing bubbles to even coming up with mantras to help us and other people!
Tuesday afternoon was particularly fun! We started our science topic of evolution and inheritance. Why not ask your child about the camel rap...it is very entertaining and we learnt a lot about how camels have adapted to their environment!
I am really looking forward to next week when we start our intervention groups, guided reading rota, The Wreck of the Zanzibar in English and much more!
Miss Meredith :)
