Homework reminder :) Please could you remind your child that ALL their homework needs to be completed by Friday each week. Thank you.
11.02.2019 - SATs parents evening letter can be downloaded from the Y6 parents and pupils section
Each child will be bring home a letter regarding a parents SATs information meeting. Please ensure you read it and return the slip to Miss Meredith indicating whether or not you will be attending. I will be going over essential information and answering any questions you may have. Please try your best to attend as it will put your mind to rest and therefore help your child stay relaxed and positive. I will also be doing handouts which I am sure you will find useful when you are helping your child with their homework.

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.
Well what can I say.... I am so proud of every single child in Year 6! They have all put 100% effort into the run up to this week and they have concentrated and tried their best in every test they sat.
I think they would like SATs week every week seen as we finished off with a PJ and Pizza day! The Pap Johns pizza delivery man looked slightly worried being faced with 31 hungry year 6s!
Thank you to all the year 6 children and to their parents for being so supportive!
BRING ON BORWICK!!
WOW! Year 6 have been super lucky this afternoon, we got to have a samba lesson with Mr Fox to release some SATs tension... It definitely worked!
This morning Year 6 found a very ordinary looking green bag in their classroom. No one knew who it could belong to as it had no name and no distinguishing markings. Miss Meredith decided to look inside... We found numerous things, from an old mans flat cap, which looked really expensive to a pair of latex gloves, some tweezers and a large white overall.
We work d together to come up with various character profiles which may help us work out who the bag belongs to! I think the best one so far is an undercover detective! I wonder what else they will work out about this mysterious bag?!
What a great way to prepare ourselves for world book day!
This morning, Years 4, 5 and 6 had a special visitor. For the third year Dan Worsely, a local author, came and carried out a writing worship in each class. Year 4 worked on characterisation, whilst years 5 and 6 focused on humour within parts of a text and how dialogue moves the action forward.
Miss Meredith has arranged another visit from Dan where he will be taking an assembly for the whole school. He will be telling us all about his most recent book. He will then run another writing worskshop with the whole of Year 3! The children will also get the opportunity to buy his book which will be signed.
Thanks Dan for three fantastic sessions! The teachers are carrying on your great work with the children and are looking forward to reading the writing the children produce!
Spring 1 - 06.02.2019
Wow, I can't actually believe we are already in February, time certainly flies when you are having fun and working as hard as we are in Year 6.
We have had our first half term of morning boosters, which both the children and teachers have thoroughly enjoyed! So many children have already made a HUGE amount of progress, especially in their arithmetic scores. We are all feeling very confident about our mock SATs which are taking place next week and can't wait to show how much we have learnt in our SATs which will take place in May. I just want to say a big thank you to all parents who have really embraced the weekly homework tasks and lastly a MASSIVE thank you to all the Year 6 pupils who have really 'upped' their game and are working their socks off! Bring on the second part of the year because I cant wait for all the exciting things we will have going on... SATs, SATs party, Borwick, Enterprise week, sports day to name a few!
Well done year 6 … lets do this!
Wow...how lucky were we to have this amazing resource from the Canadian government! The children and myself enjoyed seeing our amazing world from a totally different perspective... it really helped us to understand just how large some countries are, especially compared to the United Kingdom.
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 :)
