Class Blog for Year 6

Welcome to Year 6! 

Welcome to Year Six! Please have a read of this blog to find some interesting information about life in Year Six. We will keep this page updated regularly with blogs, pictures and information.

The Team:

In 6B the class teacher is Miss Bishop and in 6W the class teacher is Mrs Callister. We have lots of wonderful TAs that support us: Mrs Wilton, Mrs Harris, Mrs Hodkinson and Miss Wotus.

Learning in Year Six:

We absolutely understand that Year Six can seem a little daunting. However, we can promise you we have lots of fun learning activities for your children to get involved with! We are looking forward to starting our first topic of 'Evolution and Inheritance' and are ready to get stuck into our math and English topics!

Things to bring to school:

Full school uniform, a waterproof coat and water bottle/packed lunch. Please ensure that every item is clearly named. No pencil cases please!

PE Kit:

Rather than keeping PE kits in school this term, please send your child in to school in their PE kit every Monday and Wednesday. They will then stay in their PE kit throughout the day. If it is cold, please feel free to send your child in with additional clothing i.e. hoodies or tracksuit bottoms.

Home Learning:

Your child’s class teacher will send home any additional work. This will be sent home on a Friday and be expected to be brought back in by the following Wednesday. Each child should have a Times Table Rock Stars login that they should be able to access at home if they wish - please continue to encourage this as well as reading for pleasure at home.

We look forward to letting you know more about Year Six soon and sharing pictures and learning with you.

Our First Week! 

We have had a wonderful first week in Year 6 consisting of lots of hand washing and many cracked eggs during our team building challenges! The children have settled in very well to the structure of Year 6 and have really brought their a-game! We are so impressed and know we are going to have a fantastic year!

This week we have focused on settling back into school. We have practiced our times tables and place value in maths and have learnt new, exciting sentence structures in English. Our topic work has also started based on 'Evolution and Inheritance' - the children are excited to find out more about the work of Charles Darwin.

It has been a wonderful first week and it has been lovely to see the children raring to go! We're sure they will all get a good nights sleep this weekend!
