Year 6


Welcome to Year Six!

The time of the year has come again, where Mrs Reynolds and I , welcome new children in to Year Six. How exciting!
Our class name is 'The Epic Eagles' as we will be soaring high to success this year.
My name is Mrs Newbegin, I will be the class teacher and Mrs Reynolds will be the teaching assistant within our classroom this year.
Between us, our aim is to support your child in fulfilling their potential. If you ever feel the need to talk to us about anything, our door is always open.
  • Our P.E day is Friday- please ensure that your child has their football boots as well as their full indoor and outdoor kit every week (as the weather is so unpredictable and we are now entering the cold, winter months!) 
  • In Year 6, our spelling tests take place on Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child has practiced the words from the 100 word spelling challenge sheet and if they require a new sheet let me know.
  • Finally, as a school we subscribe to several websites to aid and improve your child's learning: Spelling Shed, an interactive game to practice spellings and Time Tables Rockstars, an interactive game to practice times tables on.

In the Autumn term, Year Six will be studying 'The Groovy Greeks' in History/ Geography.
In Science, we will be studying Electricity and Light.
Our main focus in P.E will be Netball, where we will focus on improving our hand- eye coordination, passing skills and knowledge/rules of the game.
In computing, we will be starting to explore the world of coding by learning how to create our own games from scratch.
