Year 6

Year 6 General Information

 

Reading

Daily reading is expected from each pupil and will be checked each morning so that new books can be issued.  We hope to promote a love of reading and help the children to become more confident readers.  We run the Buster Book Club system within the school and the children have the chance to earn rewards for the more times that they read.

 

Homework

Homework books have been issued to each child and homework will be stuck in and given out each Friday.  The homework will consist of spellings to learn and one other piece of either maths, English or topic.

 

P.E

Year 6 children are expected to have a PE kit in school at all times.  However, our PE days are Monday and Tuesday.  PE is part of the curriculum and all children will be expected to participate to extend their skills and enjoyment.

Year Six enjoyed welcoming grandparents this week to celebrate Grandparents Day. They were a great help in helping to build our Viking ships and the children loved having them as part of the class.

This week we have combined out history and science learning to investigate the journey taken by a Viking's main meal of meat and vegetables through the body. We simulated teeth, saliva, stomach, intestines etc and created our own authentic (ish) Viking poo!
