Teaching and Learning:

In Year 6 we are busy getting ourselves High School Ready. We try to make all our learning fun and enjoyable and the children really thrive to improve their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

There is a big emphasis on homework and extending learning beyond the classroom. Children are expected to have rapid recall of all their times tables, learn spellings weekly as well as the Year 5 and Year 6 Spelling List (Found in their Reading Records) Maths and Literacy homework is also sent on a Friday and is expected the following Wednesday. This is a vital aspect of Year 6 as this will become common practice when the children move up to High School. 

Key Stage Two Tests this year will take place wc 13th May.

PE in Year 6 takes place on a Tuesday afternoon and indoor PE on a Friday. Our swimming lessons will commence during the spring term.

Later on in the Year, we will visit Kingswood for the Year 6 residential. This will take place during the week and further details and information will follow.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child's learning then please don't hesitate to call and make an appointment to see us.

Thanks for your continued support

Mr Lawton , Mrs Prescott and Mrs Wagstaff

Our Visit to the Brockhole Centre and Boat Trip in the Lake District

  As part of our studies on a contrasting locality we visited the Brockhole Centre and took part in some field work exercises looking at the immediate environment and problems and solutions that occur. We also took a fabulous boat trip across Lake Windermere and learned about the differences in landscapes  as well as the advantages and disadvantages of tourism.

 

DT and Science Puppet Theatres

As part of our science topic investigating light, we designed and made our own puppet theatres and investigated the effects of moving the light source away from the shadow puppet. We really enjoyed making these and have fun learning about shadows and lights.
