Year 6 2017/18

Welcome to Year 6!

Our teachers this year are Mrs Perkins, Mr Murray, and Mrs Knight, and we will be supported by Mrs Careless and Miss Saville.

Y6 PE will take place on Mondays (outside) and Thursdays (inside) so please ensure you have the correct kit in school.

Summer Term 1

This half term we are continuing our curriculum journey based on the question 'Ring a ring o' roses - who had a pocket full of posies?'

We are in full revision mode for SATs which commence the week beginning Monday 14th May 2018.

Y6 will be bringing home a Home Learning pack at the start of each week which should be completed and returned to school by Friday of that week. We will also be giving out certificates for children that are using TT Rockstars to improve their multiplication knowledge.

Please ask one of the Y6 teachers if there is anything you need to know about preparing your child for SATs.

Y5 & Y6 Interviews

Year 5 and year 6 children have been applying for a range of jobs around school, such as lunch time helpers and readers in Y1. The children completed an application form and an interview for the roles they applied for. The interviews took place on Friday 4th, with Mr.Smith, Mrs Bister, Mrs McGrath and Ellie Mae on the interview panel.

The children were so confident and well prepared for their interviews, it was clear that they took the process seriously. The interview panel were highly impressed with all the candiates. Well done ladies!

Spring Term 2

Spring 2 was a very busy half term for Year 6.

As well as stepping up our preparation for SATs, we had our Y6 residential visit to Thornbridge outdoors centre where the children enjoyed learning new skills, problem solving and completing team building exercises.

Our question for this half term was 'Ring a ring o' roses - who had a pocket full of posies?' and we have enjoyed learning about the Great Plague of London.

Spring Term 1

This half term we are asking, 'How do you keep score in a game of pok-a-tok?'

We are focusing our learning around the Mayans. We will be ending our learning journey with a game of pok-a-tok - keeping all traditions!

Autumn Term

Our learning journey this half-term is based around Space and we will be asking 'What does it take to launch Y6 into Space?'

Your child will be bringing a Home Learning folder home with a copy of the Y6 Home Learning Sheet - 2017/18 Autumn 1, along with a reading book, a copy of the Year 6 Speedy Spellings and some other activities that can be done at home to support your child's learning.

Our Autumn 1 Learning

On Tuesday 26th September Y6 visited Outwood Academy City for a Space Day.

As you can see from the photographs, we had a great time and learned many valuable things that will help us with our own space mission!

In the Autumn 1 half term we asked 'What does it take to launch Y6 into Space?' and after hard work and plenty of fundraising, Y6 eventually launched their balloon. As you can see the images are impressive. Watch this space for the video footage ...
