Hello and welcome to Year 6
Our Class Teachers are Mrs Boulton and Miss Riding. There are 37 children in our class aged 10-11 and we live on the top corridor! The children's learning is supported by our TAs, Mrs Davey, Miss Townley and Mrs Smithies.
Year 6 can be a very stressful year with SATs and transition to Secondary School but there are lots of fun and exciting things going on aswell. We will keep you up to date with our blogs.
PE is on Wednesdays with Mrs Carter and Miss Tighe.
Homework Club is on Mondays after school with Mrs Davey and Mrs Smith.
Homework is given out on Fridays and collected in on Tuesdays.
The children are expected to read regularly during the week and are responsible for changing their own reading books from a selection provided. They must update their home reading records with the book they are reading and the page they are up to and this must be signed by a family member weekly. The children will also bring home their spelling journals weekly which contain statutory word lists and the patterns we have been working on in class. We expect the children to regularly revise these spellings.
Have you seen the Kid's Zone? Check out lots of games, activities and information.

Summer Term: Secret Garden
Autumn Term - Brilliant Britain
As part of our Brilliant Britain theme we have been exploring the events and people of WW1. We went on a trip to the Lancashire Archives to examine sources of evidence which give us clues into the events of WW1. As part of anti-bullying week, we looked at the life of WW1 soldier Walter Tull. The children designed and made stained glass windows to commemorate his heroics. As part of history day, the children had a taste of what an air raid by a zeppelin would have been like before producing air raid safety leaflets. They all looked great in their historical costumes.
