Y6 Year Book

During these uncertain times we are keen to continue our support for our year 6 children, as they transition to secondary school. Whilst our goodbyes will be different in this brave new world, we would like to offer all the children the opportunity to be part of a Y6 collective memory book. 
I have been researching putting together a year book for the Y6s. This would contain photos of each year 6 (with permission) and a message they would like to share with their peers, alongside photos and messages from staff. 
I will set up an activity on Seesaw to explain to the children what they need to do. I would then collate all the information digitally, using a template provided by the company, which would then be professionally published. 
This would then be available to purchase, at a subsidised cost of £5. 

Please could you fill in the form in the link, to confirm if you would be interested in purchasing a year book, and to obtain permission for your child's photo to be included.

Please see the letter below regarding Y6 Leaver's Hoodies.

If you have any questions, please email or ring school and speak to Alison Hornshaw (deputy head teacher). 




Please try to read with your child at least three times a week and record it in their reading record book. This can be the school banded book or a book from home. It is important to check that, as well as becoming more fluent, the children understand what they are reading, especially as they begin to read longer and more complex books. This can be done by discussing the book afterwards, or during reading. Talk about the characters, setting or main events. Encourage children to develop empathy by focusing on characters' emotions and motivations.  

It is important that your child has their reading record in school every day so that adults within school can also record in them. An adult will collect and record the times read each week. Each class has its own system in place to recognise and reward children who read at home with adults. 

We encourage a love for reading and aim for our children to be lifelong readers. The children are encouraged to read and enjoy the books in our book area within the school day. Children are welcome to bring their own reading book from home as long as it is of an appropriate level for them to read and enjoy independently. 



Spellings will be sent home each half term and will focus on the spelling rules/patterns investigated and taught during our spelling sessions. We will be testing on a Friday.

Spellings are best worked on little and often: 5 or 10 minutes every day is more beneficial than one long session.
