Year 6

Dear Year 6 and your wonderful families,


I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!


You have all worked so hard this term and shown such resilience and determination and I am extremely proud of you. I hope you have a very relaxing break with your family and I look forward to seeing you all in January. 


Thank you so much for my very kind gift, I feel so lucky to have been able to carry on teaching you all in Year 6 and I look forward to the many memories we still have to make together as a class!


With very best wishes, take care.

Dear Parents, 


Our core text that we will be studying next half term will be:


'Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You' by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black.


If this is a book that you have at home already or would like to borrow or buy a copy for your child to bring into school from January, this would be most appreciated. I will have a class copy that we will be able to share on the visualiser or with photocopied sections but it may be beneficial to be able to follow the text individually. 



Our first three Maths topics in January will be as follows:


  • Order of operations and algebra
  • Formal division
  • Perimeter and area


In Science we will be looking at living things and their habitats including classification and in Geography we will be learning about North and South America with a small-scale focus study. 


Kind regards


Miss Warne


Happy Friday!

We have had a great start back to second half of the Autumn term and I am looking forward to seeing how much we can achieve together.

This week in English, the children wrote Cinquain poems dedicated to the fallen soldiers in World War II. I was blown away by the quality of their writing and they will be bringing these home to share with you. Perhaps they could share these with grandparents over Zoom?

In Maths this week, we looked at statistics and in particular, line graphs and comparing data sets. The children did a brilliant job with their challenges, extending themselves with lots of challenge X’s. Next week in Maths we will be covering a brand new topic, looking at calculating the area of triangles.

Just a reminder of key days during the week, PE kits should be worn on Tuesday and Friday and please could Forest School clothes be brought in on Wednesdays.

In Science this half-term we are looking at Inheritance and Evolution. Today, we were identifying characteristics that we have inherited from either our parents or grandparents. For next Wednesday's lesson, it would be very helpful if the children could bring in some photos of a parent or a grandparent so that we can see the inherited features in a more life-like way. These can be from any period of time (younger or older). 


We will of course return these photos after the lesson is completed. 


Many thanks,


Miss Warne



A very warm welcome back Year Six! 


It has been a wonderful two days of learning and getting back into the routine of school. You all looked so smart in your uniform and I was very impressed by the organisation you had shown with your pencil cases and equipment. Please do remember to bring a coat to school every day and some kind of outside shoes (wellie boots or old trainers). Our PE days are Tuesdays and Fridays, please ensure that you come to school in your PE kits on those days. 


Remember to hand in your applications for Head Boy/Girl, House Captains and Sports Captain by Monday at 11.30am. 


This term our class novel will be Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian. If you would like to borrow or purchase your own copy and bring it in to school this would be most helpful. 


Homework will go out on Fridays and should be returned the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday and our spelling test will take place the following Thursday. 


I look forward to another fantastic week of learning! 


Have a fab weekend.


Miss Warne
