Friday 3rd April


Well Year 6 - you have made it to the Easter holidays!  It's a strange feeling I know having been at home for the last two weeks anyway but as it is now Easter, I won't be sending you a daily message or setting specific work.  Having said that, lots of the tasks you have been set might be ongoing and I have left the links below. 


You can keep doing a couple of pages a day from your revision books, there are topic tasks to do if you wish, downloadable activity books in the parent section of this page and I will continue to check in on Mathletics, Spellodrome, Bug Club, Rock Stars, Reading Eggs and Purple Mash to see what you have been up to. smiley  I would also love to see any Easter activities you might get up to: Easter Egg Hunts round the house or in the garden, Easter Crafts, home baking and so on...


Remember to go online to vote for your favourite entries in the Ascot Art Competition. You are allowed one entry per year group.  Let me know if you are one of the finalists!

See this week's learning page for instructions on how to use the Purple Mash Blog. smiley


Just before I go I want to wish you all a very happy Easter, let you know I'm very proud of how you've been keeping going despite not being in school and to remind you to be kind, stay positive and SMILEsmiley

Quote of the Day




Home Learning Week Beginning 30th March 2020



Bug Club has several books allocated at your reading band.  Please can you answer the questions on each bug as I will be reviewing the results! Read newspapers, watch CBBC Newsround (there are 5 minute round-ups daily) and ask questions! 



Garage Room- Please try to practise in here as much as you can. 

Studio Room-  This is where you play to try and record your best performance and improve your rock status. Your challenge on here is to answer all times tables up to 12 x 12 

Arena- This is a bit like the garage room where tables are set for you individually. The difference is you get to play against other band-mates and challenge each other. 

Festival- This is a multiplayer version of studio


Have fun rock stars and don't forget to challenge me!



If you wish to, you can also access NUMBOTS maths website using your times tables rock stars login. Just enter the school's postcode or name then your rock star login. Have fun! 


Mathletics and spellodrome

I have set some work for you and will continue to monitor and set more.

If you wish, you can play spelling games on spellodrome. 


Purple Mash-

Keep logging in to see what 'To-Do's' you have been set!


Have fun, stay safe and carry on learning!

Welcome to Year 6

Spring 2020



Spring Term 2020


Welcome back! A third of the way through Year 6 and into a new decade... This term will be a very busy one for Year 6 with lots of engaging activities, lots of fun and lots of hard work.

 This term our topic is entitled, 'Eureka!' as we base our learning around Science. Our school values are Wisdom and Compassion under the umbrella of Perseverance.   


You can find out more about the objectives  and other parts of the curriculum we will be covering in the leaflet at the bottom of the page.


If anyone has any questions or concerns, please see Mrs Neale.




In accordance with our behaviour system, House Points can be awarded for good behaviour, effort, attitude to learning, exemplary work and good manners amongst other things.  All points gained will go together with the rest of your house with the aim of being the winning team at the end of the week and receiving 5 minutes extra play.  Good luck to all teams!


Year 6 will be having dance lessons on Monday mornings  this term and outdoor games on a Tuesday afternoonPlease ensure that the children have suitable kit in school at all times. 

Reading books
Reading continues to be an key part of the children's learning.  Year 6 should be reading on a daily basis either to themselves or to an adult.  The children are responsible for changing their own reading books and they can do so on any afternoon during the week. A reading list will be shared with the children this term along with a challenge to read as many books from the list as possible over the year! 
 English and Maths homework will be given out on a Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. They will be given a homework book to complete any work in unless it is practical or online. The children will also have a homework diary in which they should write down what needs to be done and this should be signed each week at home to show that homework has been completed.  As well as this weekly homework, the children will also have the option to complete topic homework during the term. The children may select a task of their choice to complete.  These will relate to a range of subjects and could be written or practical. All pieces will need to be handed in by the last day of term but it is up to the children exactly when they are completed.  The aim of this is for the children to take responsibility for their own learning and organisation.  If you have any questions regarding homework, then please do come and see me.

The children will be given a list of words to learn for our weekly spelling test which will take place every Tuesday. Words will be sent out on a Tuesday to learn ready for the following Tuesday. These words will be a combination of spelling rules for Year 6 as well as key words from the Year 5 and 6 word list in the National Curriculum.

Break time snacks and lunch boxes
The children can bring in a piece of fresh fruit to each at break time. If you bring a packed lunch to school, please ensure it does not contain crisps or chocolate (including chocolate covered biscuit bars) and absolutely NO NUTS

Please see our uniform page for more information.





Thank you for your support with the children's learning. If you do have any queries please don't hesitate to ask.
