Our PE session will be on Monday afternoons.
This term we are focusing on cross-country, football and hockey .

We will be having the majority of PE sessions outside so please bring kit for all weather and PE trainers.  It is really important that you bring a change of clothes and footwear for PE.  If you do not bring kit, some will be provided.


Our homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday.

Hand your homework in on time and have a chance to play Homework Snakes and Ladders.  There are prizes to be won.

Make sure you are learning all of your times tables at home so that you can collect your bronze, silver and gold badges! In Year 6, children are expected to know all of their times tables and corresponding division facts for up to 12×12.  


Please try to read with your child at home at least 3 times a week.

Reading diaries will be checked every day.
Make sure you fill in your reading diary so you can hop along the spots to the top. There are chances to earn certificates and prizes as you hop along.


Spring Term

This term our topic will be based around The Victorians. Children will be carrying out cross curricular learning through this topic and will have opportunities to produce some fantastic writing based on this. To help the children develop a good knowledge and understanding of this topic, we will be researching Queen Victoria and significent events that occured during this era.  We will investigate how these events may have shaped life as we know it today.  Children will also experience what life was like in Victorian schools by taking part in a fantastic, real life Victorian classroom day.



Class Trips

Autumn Term 2

The children had a fantastic day learning about a variety of animals when we had Meet a Creature visit school.  Finding out lots of information about the different animals helped the children with their learning.  Many children overcome their fears and stroked or held the creatures.  Snakes, lizards, insects and many other creatures were drawn, described and cuddled by the children. 

Autumn Term 1

Gainsborough Old Hall

In this half term, Year 6 visited Gainsborough Old Hall to get a feel of what Tudor life was like.  The children had to dress up in different outfits to take the role of a certain member of the household.  We had King Henry VIII, jesters, dancers, servants, guards and many more characters.  Being able to walk around the house and see the different rooms and what people may have had to do in there was really interesting.

​Crucial Crew

Year 6 visited Crucial Crew this half term.  The children acted out scenarios of different issues regarding safety.  The scenarios were focused on many different areas:  House Fire, Stranger Danger, Internet Safety, Road Safety, Vandalism and Criminal Offences.  The children really enjoyed the day and learned many valuable lessons.
