Welcome to Year 6

Here is a snapshot of what Year 6 will be learning this half-term. 


Below are the Spellings for the next two weeks (15th to 22nd Sept and 22nd to 29th Sept). We are trying a new approach, and are focusing more on the rule and meaning of words rather than purely learning spellings for a test. Each week on Friday, the children will try and apply their knowledge of spelling patterns and meanings into sentences. All spellings given this year could appear on their SATs Grammar Paper in May so it is important that they try and learn them. Any questions involving this, please come and see me. 

Weekly Reminders: 

Monday - Homework Diaries checked for signatures. 

Tuesday - Outdoor PE (Football in Autumn 1).

Thursday - Maths and English Homework due in. 

Friday - Reading Records due in (Minimum 3x Reading per week). Indoor PE (Gym in Autumn 1).

Reading is a huge focus for Year 6 this year, so, to inspire more reading, here are the Top 100 books to read in Year 5 and 6 according to Mr B! It would be fantastic to see the children reading some of these choices throughout the year. House points will be generously given!
