Daily Updates

While we're not at school, we still want to keep in touch. Visit this section at 9am each day (Monday to Friday) for an update from one of the class teachers in Year 6. 

Good morning Year 6!

Your morning update is brought to you by Mrs Ardis. On a Friday, I will have the fabulous job of checking in on your home reading by looking at AR scores. I am thrilled to report that there are some amazing children who have not only read books but they have also completed the AR test.


Well done to children in 6HM: Charlotte and Rebecca, who have completed one test each so far this week!

Well done to children in 6RA: Zach T, Claire and Alex P, who have completed one test each this week!

Well done to Evie, who has completed one test, and to Adam in 6MP, who has completed not one but three tests!

Well done to Sophie in 6CA, who has completed 3 tests this week!


Looking forward to looking at the results next week!


I am thoroughly enjoying reading Harry Potter to my own child at home. Please feel free to share any book reviews, as I will be looking for my next book to read soon.


Don't forget that it is Spelling Test day today. Find someone in your home that could test you on this weeks spellings. Good luck all!




Mrs Howard would like to say, "Yes - well done Alex, great understanding of the problem."

Keep up the good work! Have a fabulous weekend! Stay safe!

Thanks to those children who are keeping their maths brains sharp by completing MyMaths activities!


Now for some of the other things you've been getting up to...


  • Zac T has been working in the mornings, but enjoying the sunshine and exercising in the afternoon. He is missing school and all his friends a lot! 
  • Harry CS has been doing the Mrs Howard maths challenge, he was very close to the right answer... And Mrs Howard's reply: "You were so close - the difference in the weight was for 12 sweets (not 18), so each sweet weighs 15g. "
  • Lucas B has been doing the Jo Wicks workout.
  • Rhys E has been studying climate in a geography session.
  • As you can see below, Kaicey has sent us some pictures of the work she's been doing. Great job, keep it up!

Wednesday 25th March


Morning everyone,


Miss Ackroyd here (otherwise known as Zarah Echo). Hope you are all well and adjusting to the current situation.  Every Wednesday I shall be checking to see how you’ve been getting on with your times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS).  Mr Purdie has refreshed your accounts and so he has asked me to ask you to do 10 studio games in order to update your baseline score and set a new rock status. 


So far only children from BP, CA & HM have logged into TTRS this week. 


Congratulations to Chloe Cull (or should I say Pink Haynes) in BP who is top scorer with 12 points.


Georgia Wylie (aka Queen Slate) and Mollie Weston (also known as Bianca Stokes) are the top scorers in CA with 22 and 23 points respectively.


Finley Checketts (alias Bruce Iero) and Charlotte Tromans (who also goes by the name of Tori Finch) are top scorers in HM with 22 and 24 points.

Good morning Year 6, Mrs Page here. So how was everyone's first day at home yesterday? We hope you managed to put into place the timetable we discussed at school last week and are staying in and keeping safe. 

We have absolutely loved hearing about all of your learning at home. The photos, emails and messages on twitter have really cheered us up - so keep them coming in. 

Each day, from today, we will upload a few tasks to continue your learning independently at home. These can be found here, in the 'Other home learning' section of the Year Group's page. There will always be at least one English task, one Maths task and one Wider Curriculum task for you to choose from. All that we ask, as ever, is that you try your best. 

We all know how much Mrs Howard LOVES maths! Each day, she is setting a Maths challenge for you, with the answers to the challenge available the next day. We know in Year 6 that we have lots of AMAZING mathematicians, who will really enjoy these challenges each day. They will be a little tricky at times, but a brilliant way to practise one our 6Rs - resilience! Please send in your answers and workings out as we would love to see. 


Keep making us proud and stay safe!
