Well here we are already half way through Year 6!


I hope you had a restful week off and you are ready to work super hard these next few weeks.


In maths we are focusing on fractions, decimals and percentges.  Our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division topic was a huge one and we've finally got to the end of it.  We will also be completing daily problem solving and reasoning questions and adding in some extra arithmetic practise too.  Homework will continue to be linked to the arithmetic and problem solving books that the children have as revision.

In literacy, we are moving onto a new book linked to Charles Darwin and we have also started writing persusasive letters to local businesses in the hope they will support us with our Easter hamper.  I am still having a big push on spellings and particularly those words on the Year 5/6 spelling list.  The children all have a copy of these at home and I would appreciate lots of extra practise where possible.

In science we are looking at livng things and focusing on classification.  Where possible, we are linking this to our Rainforest topic.

As the children are creeping towards Year 7, I would really like them to think about having responsibility for and independence in their learning.  I will be providing the children with a planner soon and they need to use this to be organised and to record homework etc.

Welcome back


I hope you all had a restful week and are ready for the Christmas madness to begin!

We will be continuing with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in maths starting with common multiples and moving onto divisibility, prime, cube and square numbers and multiplication and division strategies. In addition to this, we will be beginning to look at different SAT'S questions and how to answer them.

In literacy, we are starting a new book called Rose Blanche and we we will developing our diary writing skills and our understanding of parenthesis, colons and semicolons as well as revising the punctuation and grammar we have already learnt.

We are still learning about light in science and will then be moving onto electricity.



Welcome back and Welcome to Year 6

We hope you have had a fantastic summer and have had time to rest and refresh yourselves ready for a busy year.  I am looking forward to seeing you all again and hearing all about your holidays and adventures over the summer.

As you know, it's only a couple of weeks before we are off on our residential to Ironbridge.  I hope you are excited to find out all about the Victorians and to experience a Victorian school room.

Our first topic in maths is place value and we will be working with some very big numbers!  In literacy we are going to be focusing on a book set in the Victorian times and our science topic is light.  

Mrs Garnham will be teaching you RE on a Thursday afternoon and Mr Hudson will be with you on a Friday.
