Reading is one of the keys to your child’s success. So we ask that you ensure that your child reads for at least 20 minutes every evening and that at least once a week, an adult hears them read and then signs their reading log.
Please check our website for regular updates.

The Year 6 team
After half term we will be writing our own biographies about a fictitious (made up) character. The children will need to make up information about Pip Davenport.
The children need to find out more about fairground rides such as the merry-go-round, the carousel, the waltzer and swinging chairs.
Over the next 2 weeks, we will be writing biographies. We will be finding out about Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
He was known as the ‘Little giant’ as he was a small man who had huge ideas and dreams.
We will be creating a timeline of his life to show all of his achievements.
Watch the video to find out more.
Our gymnastics topic this have term is ‘counter balance and counter tension’, we are working with our partners on the skills of co-operation, trust and balance. Our next step, is to incorporate these balances into a sequence containing 8 -10 movements.
We started off by tasting a variety of breads to find out what we liked and what we didn’t enjoy so much.
Next, we made our own bread by following a recipe.
We learnt how to knead the dough and mould it into different shapes.
Some designs were more successful than others!
We evaluated the product after tasting it and thought about the improvements we could make.
The children had a wonderful day with the Rainbow Theatre group, as they were able to perform alongside the actors and learn a great deal of information from their peers. We all dressed up and took part in Victorian lessons (handwriting, arithmetic and vocal gymnastics). At playtime, we played marbles, hopscotch, ball and cup and hoop and ruler.
Our school was built in the Victorian era, can you find evidence of this as you walk around?
Look above the doorways, in the top hall, in each of the classrooms.
You are cordially invited to come and read with your child as part of Year 6’s DEAR session on Thursday 4th October at 2:45pm.
Please enter the school by the children’s entrance door by the Office. You will be required to sign in on a list in your child’s class. You do not need to go to the main Office.
The session finishes at 3:15pm – you will need to collect your child as normal from the back playground at hometime.
Kind regards, The Year 6 Teaching Team
