Love Learning, Love Life

Always Aiming High



Mrs McDonnell      Mrs Deakin     Miss Leath

Welcome to our final term in Year 6,

I hope you have all enjoyed the Easter break and are ready to work hard this term! We have lots to learn and I am very excited about the topics we will be covering. There will be a huge focus upon number strategies this half term; everybody must have quick recall of their times tables (in and out of order) to help us undertake complex sums more efficiently. SATS are just around the corner now so we must be practising all of our essential skills!

Swimming has now ended and PE will take place twice a week. One session a week will be taught by me (Friday) and the other by our sports coaches (Tuesday). 

Homework, Spellings and Reading
Like last term, homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. Reading books need to be changed frequently and don’t forget to bring your Reading Journal and book in everyday so that we can keep track of the books you are reading. Like last term, reading records will be checked on a Tuesday and Friday. Spellings for the entire term will be glued into Learning Logs at the beginning of each term. I expect you to learn your spellings week by week throughout the term. 

Other Adults in the class
This term, we will be lucky enough to have the continuing support of Miss Leath in the mornings and Mrs Deakin on a Tuesday afternoon.



Our English books for next term, taught through Pathways to Read, will include...

Summer 1 = Manfish by Jennifer Berne 

Summer 2 = Sky Chasers by Emma Carroll



Our reading books for next term, taught through Pathways to Write, will include...

Summer 1= Sky Chasers by Emma Carroll

Summer 2 = Great Adventurers by Alaistair Humphreys 


As we approach the SATS, any time that you can give to practising maths, reading and grammar skills would be very beneficial.

A good maths link for activities and tests:



If you are looking for any additional resources to help with SATS skills, the CGP 'SATS Buster' books are available for reading, writing (SPAG) and maths.


If you wish to contact me then please use the email or catch me at the end of the day.
