‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn A

Week 4


In maths, we have been looking at multiples and factors as well as squared and cubed numbers so lots of multiplication work. If your child is not confident with their times tables can you please encourage them at home to learn them. Thank you.


In English, we have been writing a persuasive letter to the Prime Minister based on our class book Goodnight Mr. Tom. We have also written some fantastic poems, again based on our class book, which we drafted on the iPads before writing them up neatly in our books. We have shared some of the poems below in the gallery.

Week 3


In History this week, we have been learning about Alfred the Great as you can see in our gallery. In maths we have continued with rounding numbers and in English we have been reading the next few chapters of our book Goodnight Mr. Tom.

Week 2


What a good week we’ve had. In English we have started our reading book called Goodnight Mr Tom and we have had some excellent pieces of writing from the children so far, including a diary entry. We also wrote a lovely descriptive piece on The Towers. In maths, we have been doing place value and have now moved on to rounding. We enjoyed street dance on Monday too.

Week 1
Welcome to our new Year 6 class


It's been lovely to meet you all as our new Year 6 class and we have had a great start already. It's great to see so many of you enthusiastic about maths and I've read some brilliant letters about the recipe for a perfect school year. In computing today, the children showed great resilience and enjoyed coding a game of SPLAT. Well done Year 6, if you continue with this great attitude, we'll have a fantastic year.
