Year Six

 

Welcome to Year 6 

Our staff are:

Mrs Udall, Mrs Belford, Mrs Kilgariff and Mrs Shaw

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.

Our Topic – World War 2

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

Please discuss the Story at home.

Children are really enjoying the topic and are keen to find out more. This website is a great place to continue their learning: http://primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/Britain.html

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.

P.E. lessons will take place on Thursday and Friday.

Science

Our topic this term is Electricity. We will be learning about how to make circuits, what components are and investigating how to make a bulb brighter.

On Monday 10th September we enjoyed our trip to St Margaret Ward. We loved taking part in the Fruit Batteries Science session.

On Monday 17th September we enjoyed a trip to Hanley Fire Station and learned all about being Safe & Sound.
