Homework Expectations

In Year 6, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday. This year, year 6 have been signed up to 'Spelling frame', a fun and interactive learning platform where they can practise their weekly spellings without having to pick up a pencil!

P.E.

Science Summer Term - we have been investigating how different activities impact the human body. The children planned their own investigations and had to consider what their independent and dependent variables would be. This is them in action!

End of SATs!! This called for a little celebration and a well deserved treat for our hard working year 6's!

WW2 Jitterbug (P.E. 2022)

This spring term, Year 6 have been exploring the music and dances from the 1940's. Each week, they have created a dance motif based on a specific focus, for example: hand jives, strolls, spins and lifts. Over the weeks, they have sequenced these motifs into a jitterbug dance to the song 'Into the Mood' by Glen Miller.

World Book Day 2022

Spring Term WW2 Topic: Coventry Cathedral Trip 2022

Spring Term Science including Science Week 2022: The children created field guides based on our local wildlife and habitats.
