Welcome to Year 6.  Mr Weston is the class teacher and he is supported by Mrs Walker and Mrs Phillips. In year 6 we study topics such as The Ancient Greeks, the Anglo Saxons and World War 2. In English we study themes such as Private Peaceful, Shakespeare, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (just to name a few). We are really hoping that our residential to the Isle of Wight will take place  in the summer term. In Year 6 we aim to challenge the children’s thinking and expand their horizons whilst teaching in a fun and informative way.
As we reach the end of the autumn term, I would like to thank you for all your support this term. The children have worked incredibly hard and produced work of an increasingly impressive standard.  
Next term the topic they were scheduled to cover has changed, and is now a topic titled Best of British.  This topic will enable us study the best things about our country, including the geography, some of the history, the culture and some of the people who have had a major impact both nationally and globally.
Also next term the children have been set a challenge, where they need to bring to school their favourite book that was read to them when they were little ( before they started school). They have had the chance to think about this, but they may need some help deciding. They need to bring the book in and tell the rest of the class about it, and read it out loud (if it’s a longer story book only a part of it will need to be read).  The dates for the children to do this are as follows:
15th January - Violet, Noah, Hayden
22nd January - Scarlett, Sadie, Henry
29th January - Lewis, Indianna, Daisy
26th February - Kyron, Paige, Alfie-James
5th March - Alice, Tyler C, Emma
12th March - Philomena, Katie, Dylan
19th March - Alfie L, Tyler B-A, Beth

It is really important that the children have their book on the above dates.

Whilst there is hope for the future with the vaccination, it is still unclear whether residential trips will be allowed this year. The dates we have provisionally booked for the Isle of Wight are the 7th to the 11th of June. We will inform you when we have more details, but if we are given the go ahead, then there will be less time than usual to pay so try your best to be prepared.
I would like to thank you for your kind and generous gifts and I sincerely hope your Christmas is as nice as possible.
Here’s to a brighter 2021, stay safe,
Mr Weston

Parents, here is a useful file to show you the glossary of English terms your child will expect to see in Year 6.
Here is a sample SATs paper. It has been annotated to show you how each question should be broken down. I hope this is useful! :)
