Year 6's Diary

For those of you that don’t know the team in Y6, we have the class teachers Mrs Hill and Miss Naylor plus our teaching assistant Miss Whittaker. As we enter the new year we are building up to the SATS in May whilst continuing to explore themes from around the world in our varied topic lessons.

Spring 2

Hannah Smith - Friday, February 14, 2020

Our second half of Spring term is full of exciting treats! We will start our history learning with a visit to The National Holocaust Centre and museum on Friday 28th February. This will launch our World War 2 learning. Throughout the term, we will then continue to learn about the causes, consequences and impact of World War 2 and how different groups of people were affected by it. Mrs Travers and Miss Naylor are sure that the children will continue to be engrossed in the subject - they loved our learning on World War One!


Our English learning will use the theme of World War 2, with our class novel being 'The boy in the striped pajamas'. Throughout this term we will be writing newspaper articles, diary entries, letters and even parts of the narrative. Our novel will be a great inspiration for learning and we are sure the children will be eager to discover what happens!


Our PE days will continue to be Tuesday and Friday. The children are thoroughly enjoying their yoga sessions on Tuesday and these will continue until the Summer term. 


To help at home, please continue to complete homework tasks. These are set weekly and given out on a Friday. We expect them to be handed in by Thursday and we hold a homework club on a Tuesday and Wednesday lunch times for those children who would like to complete it in school. 


Again, a huge thank you to parents and carers who were able to join us for parent's evening before the holidays. Mrs Travers and Miss Naylor discussed individual targets with families. If you were not able to make parent's evening, please contact your child's class teacher. 

Spring Term

Ecclesfield Teachers - Friday, December 20, 2019

We are already a third of the way through the school year! Where does the time go?

We have lots more exciting things planned for this term. We will be learning all about the World Wars and our trip will be to the National Holocaust Centre which is an excellent educational place to visit to help the children to understand what life would have been like for people during the war. To fit alongside this, our class novel will be Private Peaceful - a story about a boy named Tommo who lives during WW1. In science, we will be learning about electricity and carrying out lots of experiments involving circuits.

Reminders

Our reading mornings will be on Wednesday this half term, so please join us from 8:40 – 9:00am to read with your child. It is also really important to encourage your child to be reading at home at least 4 times a week.

PE will be on Monday and Thursday for both Y6 classes this term. Please make sure they have both their indoor and outdoor kits with them.

Homework will be given out on Friday due to be back on Thursday the week after. We have homework club on Tuesday and Wednesday for anyone who needs support with theirs in school.

Thanks,

The Y6 Team

Welcome to Y6!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Friday, August 30, 2019

Welcome to Year 6!


We can’t believe the summer is over and we are back to the reality of September and a brand new school year. We have exciting things planned in Y6 and we’re looking forward to getting started.

Our class book this term is Holes by Louis Sachar, which is a story about a boy called Stanley who has bad luck. He is sent to a juvenile detention centre and forced to dig holes – we won’t spoil it by explaining anymore! Our topic will explore all about America, in particular famous landmarks and important people who have come from America. In Science, we will be learning about how our bodies work including our circulatory and digestive systems.
