Dear children and parents... WELCOME TO YEAR 6!!
You've now had a chance to meet your new teachers and we can't wait to start our journey together.
In the meantime, have a restful 6 weeks off.
Remember to keep checking this class page for regular updates in September.

In 6M, we have been reading Boy 87 by Ele Fountain and The Boy at the back of the class by Onjali Q Rauf.
In 6D, we have been reading Holes by Louis Sachar.
In guided reading, we have been looking at a range of texts including non fiction, poetry and classical fiction. In class, we have been using VIPERS questioning to help develop our understanding each text type.
In maths this half term, year six have been working on reading and writing numbers up to ten million and using the four operations on whole numbers. Take a look below at some of the problems we have solved and methods we have been using.
In design technology, year six have been developing their sewing skills. The children designed and made a geometric design using a variety of stitches. We have looked at why and when we would use different stitches including running stitch, overstitch, blanket stitch and back stitch. Take a look at the tutorials below to see each type of stitch to practice at home!
