Autumn 2018

Week beginning 12th November 2018

This week year 6 visited the holocaust centre in Newark. It was an eye-opening experience. Their behaviour was impeccable - the staff even commented on how wonderful our children were.

Alongside this, we have continued our circuits work in Science; learnt French vocabulary related to the family and raised lots of money for Children In Need - what a busy week! We also enjoyed 6RN's class assembly.


Next week

Next week is Careers Week. On Wednesday there will be a careers workshop in the hall which our children will visit. Our literacy will be based around careers week too.

Next Friday, children are invited to dress in clothes of their dream career. For example, a doctor, footballer, teacher (Mr Newell has spare ties!), plumber, gymnast - the list is endless!

Week 7 (week beginning 15th October)

This week we enjoyed 6CN's class assembly which took us on a journey around the world - it was brilliant! We also had two great parents' evenings - we enjoyed sharing all of your hard work so far.

We have had a great first half term in year 6. From all the teachers and TAs in year 6, we would like to say a big thank you for how you have settled; we have an incredibly hardworking cohort of children. Well done!


Next half term we have lots to look forward to: Beth Shalom, designing and making WWII aeroplanes and our WWII day on the 5th December.


Enjoy your two break - we all deserve it!


See you back in school on Monday 5th November.

This week you have all been working very hard completing your assessments. We are all very proud of the effort you have put in. These will be sent home over half term for you to go through with your parents.


Next week is our last week of this half term. On Monday and Tuesday we have parents evening.

In maths we will all be looking at time- this is an essential life skill so make sure you practise at home too. We will be finishing our science topic on the eye and light. We will also have our last gymnastic and basketball sessions.

Week 5 (week beginning 1.10.18)


What a fun week we have had! We particularly enoyed watching 6HC's class assembly all about different character traits.

In maths this week, we have continued our work on the four operations and applying this to problem solving. Remember to keep practising your times tables!!

In French we have been learning about different subjects in school and constructing sentences.


Next week is the start of Autumn 1 assessments. You child will sit a papers in reading, SPaG and maths. They will be sent home with your child in the final week for you to have a look over. Please be mindful that these are past SATs papers; there will inevitably be gaps in their knowledge as we have just scraped the surface of the year 6 curriculum.


We look forward to see you all at parents' evening on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th October - if you haven't already, please return your appointment requests, although the slot you want may well have been taken as we give them out on a first come first served basis. Speak to your teacher if you have any concerns.


Finally, just a little reminder that Conwy deposits are due by November the 9th. Payments can be made online.
