Year 6 Book Winners!

Well Done to Kahlen, Olivia & Evie



In year 6 our focus is to experience and explore many new ideas and for the children to play an active role in their learning. This term it will be through the topic ‘Survivors’, which will form the foundations for most of our subjects: Science –Living things and their habitats and light; English – On going diary, Narrative, Formal/informal letter writing, biographical writing, poetry and journalistic writing. RE – What differences do the 5 pillars of Islam make to Muslim children’s lives? PE – Multi sports and physical fitness, DT – Having a balanced diet. In maths we will be looking at temperature, fractions, ratio and proportion, translation and lots of work on mental calculation strategies. Also, we will be orienteering whilst on residential, using coordinates and completing 3D shape challenges.


Visits and Visitors

School Camp Residential – Thursday 5th October to Friday 6th October 2017

Crucial Crew (staying safe) 19th October 2017



Could children please bring their full PE kit on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday (including trainers suitable for PE – not school trainers. These can be white or black). Most PE sessions will be taking place outdoor. Therefore, can your child have suitable, warm outdoor clothing at the ready should the weather be drizzly or cold. It is Rotherham Borough Council Policy that earrings should be taken out in every PE lesson and not taped up. Therefore, your child will be required to remove them before partaking in a PE session.



Fridays – Spellings, Numeracy, Literacy and/or Reading comprehension activities (to be returned the following Wednesday).

Reading- Recommended 10 minutes each night. Reading diary to include 3 entries from a banded school reading book.


Details will be written in children’s reading records so it is important these come to school everyday.


Some important advice:

Listen, concentrate and work hard.

Complete homework promptly and return it on time.

Be organised at home; prepare for the next school day.

Bring a water bottle for a drink every day.

Remember ALL your PE kit, EVERY day of the week.

Get plenty of sleep on school nights.

Know your multiplication tables inside out and back to front.

Read regularly at home. You are required to read for 10 minutes each day and fill in your reading record only when you have read a school book.

Smile and laugh! Remember our class pledge. This is on display next to our classroom door.



A reminder that our recommended code of dress is: white polo shirt, royal blue jumper or cardigan and grey, or navy skirts/trousers.

Jewellery, loom bands, Jojo bows and nail varnish are not to be worn please (except for small gold studs).


I am looking forward to teaching you all and having a great year in class 6!


Thank you for your continued support,


Mr Parkin (Class Teacher)
