Year 6 2017 - 2018

Mr Weston

Mrs Hodgson

Mrs Hamlin

Mrs Green


We reach of the end of the half-term and the children have worked hard this week on editing their explanation writing about giants, and working on decimals in  Maths. They have also done some work looking at how your online presence is likely to change from Year 6 to Year 7 for Safer Internet Day, and looked at creating the 'truss' part of a bridge in DT.

The weekly homework is now from our revision books. Children should be noting down the page numbers they need to do - the current homework tasks are listed on a document on this page too in case they forget! They will also be tested on Spelling List 8 on the first Friday back (23rd February).

Our SATS Club begins in the first week back after half-term. We will be covering Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar in Week 1. The sessions are on either Monday 19th February or Thursday 22nd February and parents are most welcome to attend with their children. If you haven't sent in your form to say which date your child is likely to attend, please let the office know as soon as possible.

Finally, please keep using our Maths apps Sumdog and TT Rockstars when you are home. Remember, Mr Weston can keep his beady eye on all of your progress. Don't get distracted when answering 1 x 1! 



Thank you to all parents who came in to our Y6 workshop last week and apologies for giving you some test questions at 6:00 pm! Hopefully, you found the meeting useful. If you were unable to attend, some items from the workshop are available to download on this page.

All Year 6 children now have a log-in to Times Table Rockstars. They also have access to Maths games on Sumdog. Both of these are available to be used at home, and also have apps for both Android and iOS.

Further information will be sent soon regarding the homework books and SAT Club, as was discussed in the meeting.

Meanwhile, the children are working hard at the start of the Spring term as we work on our explanation writing, and complete our work on fractions.


Welcome to Year 6!

Our class teacher is Mr Weston. What a hard task-master he is!  We will have to work really hard to impress him!

Mrs Hodgson teaches the class for English and Science on Thursdays, and RE on Wednesdays. Mrs Hamlin will be covering French and PSHE lessons on a Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Green teaches Art and DT on a Friday afternoon.

Also working with our class this year are Mrs Hurley, Mrs Evans, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Clarke (learning assistants), whilst Mrs Nelson (intervention support) will also work with some children each week.

Our PE sessions this half-term are still on Thursday and Friday afternoons with the sports coach, Mr Hodgkinson. Please ensure PE kits are always in school. It is recommended that children have some warmer clothing for football, as it is likely to take place outdoors if weather allows.

Please check out our Autumn curriculum planner which details the topics we are covering in the coming weeks. Our main focus is on Vikings, which will form the basis for our half-termly homework task.

Don't forget to make sure that Learning Logs, Spelling books and Reading Records are all in school at the right times.
