There are currently 21 pupils in this mixed ability year 6 class comprising of 10 girls and 11 boys. The class have made an excellent start to the year. Their learning attitudes and behaviour is excellent. All pupils are keen to learn, whilst also being kind to each other. Pupils are enthusiastic about our new reading incentive 'The Reading Arcade'. With nearly every pupil meeting or far exceeding their targets.

Key Extracts from the Autumn 1 newsletter
This half terms exciting topic is: World War 2. Starting with a bang, as this has always been the most engaging and exciting topic in year 6. Pupils will learn about key events, people and changes during this period of history.
Last year I saw many of Y6’s creative homework projects and they looked excellent. Theses projects are a brilliant way to really engage with the current topic out of school. It would be wonderful if we could get everyone in the class to present something this half term. Not only is the creative homework fun, it’s the perfect opportunity to build self confidence before secondary school.
Here are some ideas that you may wish to consider:
It’s totally up to you…as always, if it’s linked to WW2 then go for it!
Maths homework will be set weekly on a Friday, due in on the following Wednesday. All homework is compulsory and aimed to either embed or extend the weeks learning. Failure to bring in homework will result in pupils having to complete it during their break times.
Reading is the key to English. Good readers are constantly engaging with new words, punctuation, grammar, spellings, structure and imaginative ideas. In short, regular readers are often good writers and go on to do well in their reading, writing, and GPAS SATS later in the year. Aside from all this it’s a wonderful thing to relax the mind and enjoy. So please read at home a minimum of 3 times per week. Raffle tickets are available for every adult signature shown in homework diaries.
English homework will be set every week on Friday and will be due in by the following Thursday (Exception first 2 days). As with the maths homework, failure to hand this in will result in you completing the homework at playtime.
