Our Year 6 pupils have settled very well into the Spring Term as we begin our build up to SATs in May. Today has been our Year 6 'Evacuee Day' and I would like to draw your attention to the 'Latest News' area of the wesbite for photos and information about the day.

The first term in Year 6 is over and the children can now have a well deserved rest for two weeks. Thanks to everyone who attended this morning's carol concert - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!

It seems somewhat unbelievable that our current Year 6 pupils have now been in their final academic year at Peterbrook for over three months but that's the reality. As we approach Christmas, we look forward to festive events and hope for good weather for our carol concert next Wednesday (13th December). In lessons, we have been writing letters as children in World War One, have re-capped the four rules of number in maths as well as some difficult work on area and perimeter. We will have some units of work to complete next week but certainly hope to follow up this week's pantomime with some festive activities in the classroom. Have a great weekend everyone and take care if the snow does hit the West Midlands!

Another two weeks have flown by in Year 6 as children continue to work hard during lessons - keep this going. I would just like to remind parents of the need to sign reading records on a weekly basis. Finally for this week, many thanks for your generous donations towards Children in Need 2017; there is a separate tab on the class page for you to look at. Have a great weekend everyone!

Eight weeks have now passed in Year 6 and we have now fully settled into all routines, as well as now understanding the demanding expectations of this year. In English, I have noticed a huge improvement in the writing of children in 6R, with both the quality and quantity getting progressively better each week. In maths, we have completed several assessments and it has been clear to see that the arithmetic homework is having a positive impact on this area of the maths curriculum; we persevere with reasoning and children are beginning to use reasoning skills in all areas of maths, including recent topics such as ratio and proportion. In science, we have moved onto our electricity unit and 6R have been making circuits and seeing how switches work. There are many more busy weeks ahead and we look forward to Children in Need on the 17th of this month. Many thanks to parents and carers for your continued support - it has a huge impact on the progress your child makes in school.

Year 6 have been extremely busy over the past few weeks! Firstly, we had a huge week last week as 46 pupils went to North Wales for the residential to Arete Outdoor Education Centre, Llanrug. Whilst there, pupils engaged in a variety of activities and all returned very happily last Friday with a wealth of new experiences behind them. Those children who remained at school took part in some interesting lessons and the feedback from them has been very positive. Finally, I would like to thank all parents & carers for their support with Harvest Festival this year, as we now have lots of food to be sent into the local community.


Friday 15th September 2017


Our Year 6 pupils have now been back for just under two weeks and are beginning to settle into the routines and expectations in their final year at Peterbrook. We have quickly got into the curriculum and have seen some real positives in terms of enthusiasm and interest. We soon have our trip to Arete Outdoor Education Centre and remind parents that there is a short meeting in the 6R classroom at 3.15pm today. I also look forward to seeing everybody next Tuesday (19th September) at the information evening and will endeavour to keep this class page as relevant and up to date as possible as the year progresses.
