 Welcome Year 6


Welcome to our new Year 6 page for 2018-2019! This term we will be learning all about Extreme Survivors. This gives us a good opportunity to develop our scientific skills as we investigate and explore evolution, adaptation and survival in extreme climates. The class are looking forward to their new topic, in addition to writing biographies and explanation texts in Literacy and place value and calculation in Maths.

This term's homework will be given out Friday 7.9.18 and will be due in every Friday for our class sharing session.

In addition to this, children will be expected to learn some spellings for their spelling test, which will take place every Thursday afternoon.

Below is the homework for our class this term:

Homework Term 1


PE will take place every week on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school every Monday and should stay in school until the end of the week.

PE kit is a white or pale yellow t-shirt/polo shirt, white or black shorts/joggers and plain trainers/pumps.


Library for our class will take place on Wednesday afternoon. Your child will bring home a book of their choice and should be recording their reading in their reading journals. The book should stay in their school bag so that it can be swapped or checked every week during library time. 

Thank you very much for your continued support. If you wish to talk with me about any issues or concerns please come and see me at the end of the school day or make an appointment with Mrs Wardle. 


Kind regards, 

Miss Murphy
