Welcome to our year group page, look here to see what is happening as well as useful information and dates. Pop back every now and again to take a look: see pictures, information and our class blog which will let you know what has been happening in our class and around school! Feel free to leave a comment!

If at any point in the year you need to contact us; please leave a message with staff on the playground, write in your child's planner or contact the school office.

Need To Know

P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Thursday - children will need an indoor and outdoor kit as well as long hair tied back (water bottles also advisable) Children will also need a change of shoes. We ask that the children come to school in their PE kits as our PE sessions are in the morning. They need to bring their school uniform in a bag. 

Planners - children should bring their planners every day and should be signed weekly by an adult at home, This is a useful and important too for communicating between home and school. 

Book bags - Please make sure that children only bring what is needed to school as space is limited in classrooms.

Water bottles - Children need to be hydrated to keep their brains active, please bring a water bottle. 



Reading - children need to read weekly and will be sent home with a reading book. Please record in their planners when they have read. If children read at least twice a week and there is evidence of this in their planners they will earn an extra team point! 

Spellings - children will have spellings to revise each week, these maybe a spelling patterns or words chosen from the National Curriculum List.

Other homework will either be sent home in a homework book or set our our online revision site - SATs companion. Some children might receive their homework on an alternative site: Education City. More information will be sent home where necessary. 

Important Dates

School trip to Magna: 27th September 2019

Residential to Whitby: 4th - 6th November 2019




 We had a brilliant time exploring and learning at Magna, it has been a brilliant kick start to our topic on natural disasters. The children were filled with awe and wonder with a "wow" moment around each corner! Thank you to year six for their fantastic behaviour, all of your teachers were very proud. Also thank you to Mr Jones for all of the risk assessments and ensuring that the trip ran as smoothly as it did. Counting down the days until Whitby now!

Well done to all of our year 6 for getting to the end of the week, it hasn't always been easy, but we have done it!!!
Thank you for all the staff and parental support too. 

Results will be out in July. 

We are now starting to think of all the learning we have left to do: science, ICT and art seem to be top of the children's request list, and will provide some fun and exciting opportunities. 

Play letters have been sent out, please let us know if your child will be taking part.

Have a good weekend.

We are nearly there.....

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

We have been working hard this week practising all of our skills in preparation for the SATs, however, we also know how important it is to check in with our emotions and have some downtime. 

We have had circle time this week, discussing how we are always learning and we should try to value what we know; that we are all individual and no matter the outcome, it is about knowing we have done our best. 

Here we have children - having some down time - creating motivational posters of support for each other - some of the ideas are fantastic and creative.

Happy Summer Term

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Hopefully with the Summer Term, will be some nice sunny weather!

As you know this will be a busy half term for year 6 - Mr Jones and I will be working hard to motivate and encourage your children TO DO THEIR BEST, whatever that is. We recognise, and hope that the children recognise, that we are all individual and our achievements are the same.

Before the Easter break we sent a letter home, with your child's latest results and a list of all we are providing to help support them during a time that we know can be exciting yet scary! 

Just to clarify:

We will be running lunchtime clubs: Monday - grammar, Tuesday - reading and Friday - maths.
Open Maths sessions on a Thursday, after school until 4.15 (please make sure your child knows how they are getting home)
Grammar sessions - specifically looking at tests - Wednesday morning - 8.15am
SATs breakfast, beginning on 29th April - Breakfast provided 8am. 

Other helpful resources are posted on our website page - please look. 

In other news, our topic this half term is The Victorians, we will be looking at children and the workplace, education and crime and punishment plus, whatever else captures our interest. 
PE will continue on a Thursday and Friday - please send your child with suitable outdoor footwear as if we feel the need to get outside and blow away some cobwebs, we will!!!

Thank you for your support thus far, please get in touch if necessary.

Much sleep needed

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

Happy Weekend! I hope all the children and staff can use this weekend to catch up on much need sleep after our very windy trip to Whitby!
Although the sky was grey at points, we were able to enjoy every activity we planned. The children asked and answered questions about Captain Cook, saw a lifeboat and discussed how it works and had much fun on the beach, playing games, eating chips and spending money on the arcades (I hope you all received your postcards too).

This week we have set measurement homework on SATs companion - there are many elements to cover, so don't feel these all have to be done this weekend! Use the prevision books we provided at parents evening to help you out too!

Next week is another busy week revision is well on the way now. If you have any questions or need help please let us know. Thursday 21st we are have to Morley Academy to take part in some science work, most of you provided permission for local walks at the beginning of the year. If you didn't, there will be a slip to sign in your child's bag. 

There have not been new spelling in your child's planners for the last couple of weeks. Children should be continuing practise the orange words list that was given our earlier in the year - please as if you need another one. 

Have a good weekend.

Welcome Back

naylorn on: Year 6 Blog

We finished last half term as busy little bee's. We created kites and flew them as part of Chinese New Year, completed cycle training and did another round of practise tests. Your children will receive their results from these so please ask them! We will also try to get them out to you on a slip. 

This half term, we will be working hard on filling gaps in learning and building your child's confidence in taking these tests. We may send extra homework from time to time that is linked to something your child needs to practise - we would appreciate you encouraging and helping them where you can. Remember SATs companion also has helpful videos across all topics. 

However, it is not all about the tests....

Whitby is almost upon us. Please make sure all forms are returned, if you are missing something please contact the school office. 

Take a look at what else we are learning by looking to our curriculum page art, PE, history are all still a part of our curriculum! 

If you wish to speak to myself or Mr Jones, please make an appointment through the school office - they will also pass on any messages for you.
