Lotherton Hall Visit February 2019
Our topic this term is WWII. We were lucky enough to attend an evacuee workshop at Lotherton Hall. We learnt what it was like to be evacuated to the countryside, how evacuees were expected to earn their keep in the house and studied the morse code.
Take a look at some of our photographs from the visit.

Welcome to Year 6
I hope you've had a lovely summer- I'm very much looking forward to getting to know you all.
Thank you for those of you who attended the year 6 welcome session. If you could not attend the meeting, the powerpoint is below. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me.
This website will be updated regularly so please continue to look at our class page for important information and to see pictures of our learning.
Year 6 homework timetable
Thursday- Monday: Grammar and spelling homework
The grammar homework will be introduced on a Thursday morning. Grammar homework will be sent home in a spelling/grammar folder. Spellings will be given on the same day as the grammar homework and in the same folder. Occasional extension tasks may be included with the spelling homework. The spelling test will be on the back of their spelling homework so there is a record of how they scored on the test for you to see at home. Spellings set are to be revised each day – please help by testing your child at least twice during the week.
Please make sure the spelling/grammar folder is in school on a Monday.
Monday-Thursday: Maths homework
Maths homework will consolidate the learning from the previous week. If your child finds this difficult, please encourage them to speak to me about it so we can go over it in assembly time on Monday.
Please make sure the maths homework folder is in school on a Thursday.
Friday-Tuesday: Mathletics homeowork
A topic homework grid will be sent home at the start of every half term (in the back of the grammar/spelling homework folder). Your child should complete at least two of the activities on the sheet by the end of the half term.
In addition, please encourage your child to read every day and ask them questions about the text. Reading comprehension homework will start after Christmas.
Investors in Pupils
This is an extremely important year for the children of Year 6 and Investors in Pupils is key to our success.
In year 6, every child has an individual target that they personally work towards. We have a class target that we work towards as a team.
Our current class target is:
To come in to class quietly
We will decide on a reward for our class target when we are closer to achieving it.

In Year 6, we've started to learn new vocabulary about what we can find in our pencil case. We tried really hard to pronounce the words correctly.
Tengo un - I have...
No tengo - I don't have...
