Year 6 2017 - 2018

Miss Brock

Miss Brock

Welcome back to school! 

I hope you have had a good rest over half term and are ready for an action-packed half term. We have lots of exciting things planned including Chemistry with Cabbage, Bible Explorer and our Christmas activities!

Please see our blog for important updates and information.


Our topic this term is World War 2 where we will learn about what life was like during a tough period of British history. Part of our study will look at the reasons why the war started and who was involved. We will also learn about how different people, services and businesses joined together to support each other and survive the war. 


In our English sessions, we will be reading 'Friend or Foe?' by Michael Morpurgo. This text explores what life was like for children evacuees during World War 2. 

Our trip to Stockport Air Raid Shelter is planned for Monday 18th September, where we have requested that the children are dressed in suitable WW2 themed clothing as they will be engaging in lots of role play throughout the visit. 



Booster Sessions 

Mrs Watson's and Mrs Nicholls' sessions will run weekly. Mrs Nicholls' group will start on the 2nd October. Mrs Watson's group will start on 26th September. 

Due to the numbers signed up for my groups, maths and grammar, I have had to timetable alternate sessions for these children. Please see a copy of the timetable below, that was sent home on the 25th September. As I have had to alternate the sessions, I may set tasks for the children to complete in between sessions. There are five sessions scheduled for each group.

A copy of the homework grid for this term will be stuck into the diaries and will have a focus on our topic for this term. It can also be found under the 'homework' tab at the top of this page. 

The children will also be receiving weekly Maths and English homework with a focus on what we are working on in class. On a Monday maths will be sent home and is to be handed in on the following Thursday. Then English will come home Thursday and is to be handed in the following Monday. The children will have English and Maths homework books where they will record the task. The tasks will range from online games or challenges to written tasks. 


The children will be given weekly spellings with a focus of a rule or spelling pattern. A copy of each week's spellings will be uploaded to the 'spelling' tab at the top of this page. 


The children are encouraged to read as much as possible at home and to keep a record of this in their diaries. we have a class library that the children can choose from or it can be a book they have from home. The diaries are signed weekly and I will be looking for a record of reading. There is also a section for parents to sign each week. 

There are also some suggested reading books for Year 6 children which can be found under the 'reading' tab at the top of this page. 

School Diaries 

Please remember to take your diaries home and bring them back to school every day. 

Water Bottles 

All children have been provided with a school water bottle where a donation of £1 will be put towards the running of the water filter machines. Water bottles should go home on a Friday for a wash and be returned back to school on a Monday. The water bottles will have fresh water every day. 


Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday and Thursday. For this term we have Tag Rugby with Mr Slainey on a Wednesday and Mr Bentham on a Thursday. As the children will be using the field as much as possible, we have suggested that the children have a pair of tracksuit bottoms or leggings, to wear under their shorts, and a hoodie to keep them warm. 

Outdoor shoes and coats 

All children should have a pair of outdoor shoes and a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
