Year 6 have started the Spring term with enthusiasm for their new topics. We will be learning about WWI and WWII and have started our class text: Rose Blanche which has already produced lots of wonderful writing in a variety of genres.


In science, we are learning about electricity where the children will choose a circuit of their choice to form a part of their Anderson Shelter forming cross curricular links with Design and Technology.


Times Table Superstars


We have a challenge for you...are you ready? 


We want EVERY child to have achieved as many new times table badges as they can! Can you get Platinum before you leave? 


- When you go to bed in the evening, repeat a times table fact for every step you take towards your bedroom.


- You can download apps on phones/ipads including: 'Hit the Button', 'Times Table Game' and '10 Minutes a Day Times Tables'.


- Practise with a family member or friend.


- Practise your doubles/halves.

Fairthorne Deposits... PAYMENTS DUE


Please pay all Fairthorne deposits as soon as possible to confirm your child's place on our end of year trip to Fairthorne. The experience is incredibly rewarding and provides the children with excellent opportunities to build on their independence skills before heading off to secondary school.


If you have ANY questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school office and ask for Miss Clarke.


*** FINAL PAYMENTS must be in by 29th March***

With SATs creeping up on us, we want to make sure that you are feeling confident and prepared. Take a look at some of our Top Tips below!



  • Make sure that you have early nights from now  so that you are not too tired! Perhaps you could read a book before going to sleep.


  • Ensure that you have a big breakfast. Maybe this would be a good week to try/have school dinners! Don't forget our special *Year 6 Breakfast Club* that will run from 8.15am :) 


  • Try to organise your pencil case the weekend before SATs. You will need: handwriting pens, pencils, rubber, ruler and a sharpener.


  • Be on time everyday! 


  • Bring your PE kit everyday as we may go out in the afternoons!


  • Don't panic. Try to relax, maybe ask your mum to run you a bath to ease your stresses.




Year 6 have their own educational blog! Friends and family can visit the page and delve into the learning of both Redwood and Juniper Class. Anyone can read and leave a comment, the more the better! The children are aware of how to keep safe when using the blog at school and at home. If you are visiting the blog for the first time, please take a look at the E-safety and Rules pages at the top of the page.
