Spread your wings and soar to success

Welcome to the Class 6 page. Take a look at what we have been learning.

W/C 08/01/18

A warm welcome back Year 6! You have come back ready and raring to go! Well done everyone- keep up this fab attitude this term! 

 We have been getting back into the swing of things and trying hard to beat our scores each time we do an assessment style paper! Big well done to your very mature and positive attitude to learning Year 6! This will be key on the run up to SATS! 

 As you have worked so hard last half term and settled into this half term well, I have decided to organise some trips and themed days for us to enjoy and learn about our WW2 topic in depth! We are aiming to answer all those questions you wanted to know and what we brainstormed just before Christmas and we’re going to do this with a trip to Eden Camp and a ‘Pie and Peas Night’ - don’t forget to bring your letters back so you don’t miss out! 

 Have a lovely weekend Y6!

Year 6 have been working hard on their Literacy and Numeracy looking at fractions, decimals and percentages and their equivalents; we are also in the process of writing our own suspense story!


Just a reminder there is another SATS meeting for Y6 parents on Thursday 23rd at 3.15pm. This will be incredibly beneficial for you to attend if you have children in Y6 as we will have past papers for you to look at and the expectations of the new test.


We are also looking at putting on  maths workshops for parents in all year groups to attend, which show how we work out the 4 operations in class. It will be run on Tuesday 28th at 2.30pm. A letter will be coming out soon – we look forward to seeing you all J

 This week Y6 have been hard at work unpicking word problems and trying to solve some particularly tricky reading comprehensions. They have all been working hard and need to keep this up! Last week we were hard at work completing assessments; their hard work has paid off as all children have beaten their scores from last time! Well done Y6!


I would just like to say a big thank you to all parents that came to the parent – pupil open day; I will also be running a SATS meeting for parents/ guardians after the half term to discuss what will happen in SATS and resources will be available to look at that may support your child at home. A maths workshop will also be available to show the different methods that we use in school.


Keeping up with our homework, I will send a few more pieces home for children to have a go at over the holidays – the children have been doing well with this and rewards will be given if they bring their work back after the holidays J


Well done year 6! You have worked incredibly hard this half term – make sure you relax and get your energy charged back up ready for after half term!

This week in year 6 we have been on a very exciting trip up to Outwood Academy where the children participated in a number of different science activities!
We have also been working hard in class converting units of measure and having a go at some diary writing, all linked to our WWII topic.
A big well done to all children bringing back your daily homework and remember reading at home each day is also incredibly important :)
Well done class 6 keep up all the hard work and have a lovely weekend!

This week in Year 6 we have been working hard and picking up the pace now – you have all worked incredibly hard this week and now need to keep this up! Well done to all children who have brought all your homework back in your folders. Hopefully you have told all the people you live with, about how hard you have been working and taking home your homework each day.

As of last week, Y6 have been taking home a piece of homework home each evening that they can do either that night or over the weekend, along with their reading each night! Well done to all those children bringing them back each morning J

Remember an extra challenge from Mrs Underhay (remember how much we like a challenge) try learning you’re 6,7,8x tables fluently. You could chant them or write them down – maybe you could even ask someone at home to help you learn them!

Keep up all the hard work and a big well done for this week!

Have a lovely weekend Y6 J

This week Year 6 have been hard at work learning all about the two different clauses within a sentence: main clauses and subordinate clauses. We have also been looking at prepositions and prepositional phrases! All tricky stuff! We have also looked at putting these new terms into our writing both in our Literacy lessons and topic lessons.
In topic we have been continuing our learning of WW2 that the children are very excited about! We have been making our very own WW2 leaflets putting all our literacy skills into practice.
In maths we have been looking at addition and subtraction along with word problems that involve these operations!
Year 6 have worked hard with this and need to continue all their hard work! Well done Year 6!

A warm welcome back year 6- you have come back with an excellent attitude and your behaviour has been superb! A big well done!  This week we have been working hard and conducting our Year 6 assessment week where the children have been completing both Year 5 and Year 6 SATs papers. I have been incredibly impressed with their attitude and the children are definitely settling into Year 6 very well!  Keep it up Year 6! :)
