  Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page!  

  Year 6 Of The Week!!  

  This week it is Maisie - Chicken Nugget Congratulations!!!  

   Welcome Back and Happy New Year!!  

 

 

We have a busy term ahead of us and our new learning journey will be revealed on Tuesday when we have an activities afternoon in the hall. Parents and carers are welcome to join us as we enjoy various activities and discover what we will be learning about.

 

Just as last term,  please ensure that your child is reading and practising times tables every evening. There will be spelling words given out on a Friday to be returned by Wednesday. The class are fantastic at practising their spellings and I have been so impressed with the range of activities used to help them. There will also be Maths homework given out on a Monday to be returned and marked together on the following Monday. Please encourage your child to do the Maths homework and remind them that they can come and ask for help any time.

 

PE days this term will be Wednesday and Thursdays and we will be doing dance and High 5 netball. Please ensure that the children have a PE kit in school for these days. It is important that they can move freely and they can get quite hot, particularly in netball! A change of t-shirt, pair of shorts or leggings are needed - thank you.

 

Should you have any concerns or wish to talk to me about your child's progress, please feel free to come and see me. I will be in the playground at the end of every day, apart from Fridays.

 

We aim to update the website each week on a Friday, please come and have a look regularly so that you can see what we have been up to. The spellings for each week will also be here, just in case they have been misplaced!

 

 Please scroll down to find out what we have been doing. 

 

 Week 3 

 Happy Chinese New Year!! 

To celebrate the year of the Rat, we used our working with others skills to make dragons with Year 2. We had lots of materials to use and created dragons that we could dance with. We danced together in the afternoon. Please look at the video below.

We have read more of Beowulf this week and thought about what sort of person he would have been. We wrote character descriptions about him and designed wanted posters for Grendel. We have been working on using a variety of sentence lengths in our writing.

Spelling words will be given out on Monday next week as it has been too busy with all of the celebrations to hand them out today . These are the words if people would like to have a practise. They can come in on Thursday next week...just this once!

exaggerate

excellent

 Week 2 

This week we took part in the 500 Words live lesson with lots of other schools around the country. We were given lots of tips, but probably the most useful was how to end our stories. The advice is to think of our endings as the following punctuation marks: a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark. Please ask us to explain this! These photos show how enthralled we were.

This week's spelling words are:

embarrass

environment

equipment

bough

drought

 

Please can they be back in on Wednesday!

 Week 1 

Our first week back has been a really busy one. It was great to see so many people at the stunning start to help the children enjoy all of the activities. We will boil up the tie dye next week as we wanted to make sure any children who missed the afternoon had the opportunity to make a design.

We now know that we are going to be learning about Invaders and are looking forward to finding out more next week. We already know that we will be studying Beowulf in our English lessons.

 

 

This week's spelling words are:

dictionary
disastrous
ought
thorough
rough

 

Please make sure they are in by Wednesday so that we can mark them!

 

 

We are continuing to read Wolf Brother in our Guided Reading sessions and will be adding to our survival guide next wee.
