Welcome to the Year 6 class page.  We will share information about things we have done and are doing on this page as well as photographs of us in action. Make sure you check back regularly to see what we have been up to.

If you’re concerned about e-safety this is a great place to start. An excellent game to play alongside your children and discuss the options on the screen! Only takes a few minutes but will help keep children safe onlinehttps://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/

 

 

Our Topic – World War 2

As part of our topic we will be reading Goodnight Mister Tom

Please discuss the Story at home.

 

We love this topic and look forward to seeing what the children learn and where the journey takes us.  Some of the areas we study are key dates, Dunkirk, the homefront and evacuees. If children would like to carry out their own research the following websites can be useful.

Just a reminder children should be reading every day and their diaries signed and returned to school. The class with the highest percentage is rewarded each week. Children are also rewarded at the end of each term.

Remember it is really important to hear your child read every day and provide a nice, quiet environment for them to do their homework and practice spellings. Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and must be returned to school by the following Monday. Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

 

Below is a link to a great game to help children learn the Year 5/6 spellings words

P.E. lessons will take place on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please ensure PE kits are in school.

 

Our topic this term is electricity. We will be learning about different circuits and what can affect how well a circuit works.
