Welcome to year 6!

Myths and Legends

Our new topic is Year 6 is Myths and Legends which focuses on mythical stories and tales from other cultures.  We will be exploring the Ancient Greeks in details and leading up to designing and making our own greek pots.


Our text for Autumn 1 is The Adventures of Odysseus.  It tells the story of a greek hero and the adventures he entails during his reign.  We will meet various different heroes and villians and be looking at characters in detail to create descriptions.


In Science we are learning all about Light.  We started our learning by investigating how we can show that light travels in straight lines.

Science Week in Year 6

Year 6 have had lots of fun this week investigating air resistance!  Their job was to design and make a parachute, choosing suitable materials to ensure an egg was able to make a safe landing from a height.  Some were a roaring success whilst others just went splat!

Homework will be sent out on Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday. The homework menu allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subject interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.

Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on regularly to ensure that children are reading at home.
