Word of the Week!
We know how much you love to discover and use new words, so we have decided to carry on with our ‘Word of the Week’ online. Even though we aren’t using our dojo rewards at the minute, still try to find out the meaning of the words and use them in any writing you do, and when you are talking if you can. Perhaps you could upload an example to your class blog on See-Saw – we would love to see it!
Take care – we are missing you all very much!

Welcome to our Class Page and thank you for taking the time to look at what we are doing in Year 6

Please can these be brought into school on a Monday morning, ready for PE during the week.
Homework is set for the week in the following subjects:
Grammar and Arithmetic tasks are marked on a Monday.
Spelling Tests occur every Friday.
In addition, reading books are sent home with children—so that their reading can be supported at home and in school.
Our class reading book is currently ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horowitz.
Our writing tasks are currently based on what we are reading in this gripping adventure story.
We are currently recapping and consolidating our learning on the topic of measurement, including:
- Area and Perimeter
Please take a look at what we have been doing this term:
World Book Day
We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.
We started the day with a STAR reading session and enjoyed reading for pleasure.
We also paired up with 3M to listen to the Year 3 children read and showed them the work that we have been doing in English.
We love reading!
NSPCC Number Day
We took part in NSPCC Number Day to raise money for charity while having a fun time sharing our knowledge and skills in Maths.
We went to Reception and worked with groups of children to play number games, sing number rhymes and help them understand money in the role play shop.
We love Maths!
Year 6 Justice Assembly
Thank you to all parents, carers, family and friends who came to watch our assembly. We used the theme of justice to tell the story of William Wilberforce and his fight to abolish the transatlantic salve trade. As a Christian school, here at St Margaret’s, we are also committed to creating a community of justice and equality.
Animals including Humans — Circulatory System
In Science, we have been learning about how our bodies work and how to keep healthy. We enjoyed re-enacting the journey of a blood cell.
Chinese New Year
We enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year; we learnt how to drum and march using traditional instruments.
