An emotional day in Year 6 today as we say goodbye to a fantasic group of children. You will all be missed very much; I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents/carers for their support throughout this academic year.

Year 6 today visited Stratford-Upon-Avon and had a superb day out. All information and photos can be found on the 'Stratford-Upon-Avon' tab on the Year 6 class page so please take a look at this area of the website.
We have also been busily preparing for our end of year production and I would like to thank parents and carers for your support with helping children to learn lines at home and in finding clothes for costumes - it is much appreciated!

Today was our 'Race for Life' and Year 6 children enjoyed the event. Many thanks for joining and sponsoring your children in order to raise money for this important cause.

Firstly, I would like to say a huge well done to 6R for their efforts during the SATs last week - I am extremely proud of each and every one of you. This week, we have partly turned our attention towards the end of year production and have started to learn songs etc. We also had an enjoyable art lesson in which the children used paint to create a sunset scene and the results, which you can see below, look fantastic!

A very postive first week back after the Easter break! I would like to thank all parents/carers for their support with the Easter holiday homework; it has been so pleasing to see the progress made by the pupils as we approach SATs week and this could not have been done without your support! This afternoon, children in 6R were busily preparing themselves for the assessments - they seemed calm and confident! Have a great bank holiday weekend!
Friday 7th April 2017
An extremely busy term comes to an end and I have to once again praise the magnificent efforts of our Year 6 pupils. We have been preparing for our SATs tests and I know that all pupils are ready for a break. We have sent home some homework and a letter but I would like to highlight the importance of our Year 6 pupils having some time to relax as well as completing homework in readiness for the assessments. I hope everyone has a relaxing break and comes back refreshed on Monday 24th April!

The hard work has been continuing in 6R this week with only 13 school days remaining until or SATs tests. Our pupils wrote excellent non-fiction reports on rainforest people this week and I captured them in full flow...
Friday 17th March 2017
Year 6 today visited the 'Big Bang Fair' at the NEC as part of science week. We had a fantastic time and the photos below show some of the things we got up to on our day out!
Tuesday 7th March - Real Maths Day
Today, 6R were incredibly fortunate to have two parents, Mrs Khan and Mr Crathorne, come into our classroom to talk about how they use maths in their jobs. The purpose of the day was for all children to understand that maths is an important subject and lots of people use it within their places of work; it was clear to see that all pupils in 6R were interested in what they heard and then went on to impress the visitors with their reasoning and problem solving skills. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank Mrs Khan and Mr Crathorne for coming into 6R today - it had a positive impact on the children in our class!
Friday 3rd March 2017
World Book Day was Thursday 2nd March 2017 and I have uploaded several photos of 6R in their costumes. Thanks to all parents/carers for their support with this annual event.
Friday 17th February 2017
It's the end of the half term and it's time for our Year 6 pupils to have a well earned week's rest. The upcoming half term leading up to Easter will be one in which we will focus on the SATs tests and will prepare our pupils for these. I have been delighted with the effort shown by 6R during their practice assessments this week wish every pupil a relaxing half term week!
Wednesday 8th February 2017
Inspired by Captain Scott's expedition to Antarctica, Year 6 pupils brought in boxes of items they would want to take with them if they were to take on such an adventure. They shared their boxes this afternoon and will write a poem based on them tomorrow morning!
Friday 27th January 2017
The photographs below show the children's 'sporting poses' which they will use during an art activity next week. The final two photos were taken during a warm up activity to a PSHE lesson; 6R managed to pass a foam ball around the circle without using their hands, and without the ball touching the floor, in just 37 seconds - impressive!
Friday 16th December
The first term in Year 6 is over! Pupils have worked very hard since September and have deserved some of the Christmas treats they have enjoyed over the last couple of days. Yesterday's carol concert was a personal highlight as so many children were able to have individual roles and everyone sang with big smiles on their faces. I would now like to take the opportunity to thank all parents & carers for your support at home this term and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
During art lessons, 6R designed, made and painted masks inspired by the ancient Edo empire. Below are images of pupils with their masks:
Week beginning 28/11/16
Year 6 have had an interesting couple of weeks and have been learning lots of new skills in maths, as well as beginning to study the text, Archie's War, in English. Possibly the highlight of the last two weeks was during our science lessons on yeast; pupils began Tuesday morning by making bread and ended the afternoon by eating it. The purpose of the task was for children to understand yeast and why it is important. During Tuesday afternoon, we carried out a second investigation where the children found the perfect conditions for yeast to produce Carbon Dioxide and therefore inflate a balloon. Some photos of the day can be seen below.
Tonight (Friday 2nd December) is the school Christmas Fayre and Year 6 have worked very hard to run some stalls at the event. Please come along to the 2H classroom between 6pm and 8pm to visit our range of stalls. We hope to see you all this evening!
Children in Need and Anti-Bullying week
We have had a fantastic week in Year 6 with our Safeside visit (see latest news) and other activities. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all children, parents and carers for their effort this week in raising lots of money for Children in Need; our fundraising day was on Thursday and we had lots of fun!
I hope you enjoy looking through the photos...
Week beginning 07/11/16
It's the end of another busy week in Year Six and it was great to have the opportunity to congratulate children for their hard work during celebration assembly this morning. In English lessons, we have had a focus on grammar and punctuation this week, ending with the children taking a past SATs paper. In maths, we have been working harding on statistics, including interpreting line graphs and pie charts. We now begin to think ahead to next week and I look forward to seeing all pupils at the slightly earlier time of 8:45 on Monday morning in preparation for our trip to Safeside. I hope to add photos of the trip, as well as Children in Need activities, by the end of next week. Have a restful weekend!
Week beginning 17/10/16
Half term is here and I would like to congratulate pupils on getting one-sixth of the way through Year 6 (our recent work on fractions helped with that one!) It has been a fantastic start to the year and pupils deserve their week's break. Over the last couple of weeks, children have continued their hard work during all lessons and recently carried out a fantastic piece of cross-curricular written work about Benin City; I enjoyed reading them all! After half term, we will have PE on the Monday afternoon so please remember to bring in your PE kits. Have a restful, enjoyable and safe half term - I look forward to hearing about what you all got up to when we return to school!
Week beginning 03/10/16
I hope we have all recovered after a fantastic week at Arete centre, Llanrug last week. I know that the children who stayed at home also had a superb week in school and all adults were impressed with their attitude and hard work. In school, we have been settling into Year 6 routines and the children have generally tried hard to increase their work ethic to meet the demands of a challenging curriculum. In English, we have been busily studying the narrative poem, The Highwayman; children have enjoyed this and are looking into the literary features included within it. In maths, children are working extremely hard and we are looking to change the mindset of pupils so that they are willing to take a challenge and not be afraid to make mistakes in order to gain a full understanding of the subject. In IPC, we are studying the AD900 period and pupils have been learning about the fascinating lives of the Mayan civilisation. In science, we have been studying the heart and lungs; some pupils were a little squeamish when looking at a video of a dissection! Overall, Year 6 has begin with lots of hard work but I also know that Llanrug will become a memory which will remain with our children for a long time!
