Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Miss Coull, Mr Waterfield, Mr Cooper, Mrs Green and Mrs Cable welcome you to the Year 6 homepage. Visit here to keep up-to-date with the latest information and events. Through this page, we will be sharing the children's activities and achievements.
Remember to check for further details and information.
We would also like to welcome Mrs Burton to Year Six. Every Tuesday, Mrs Burton teaches in 6HC. Miss Coull is in school and works very closely with Mrs Burton, and the other staff in the year group, to ensure there is consistency throughout the week. If there are any issues or concerns, please feel free to talk to Mrs Burton on a Tuesday but Miss Coull is also available if required.
Every other Thursday, Year Six have computing, science and PE lessons. Again, Miss Coull and Mr Waterfield are in school but they are not teaching the class. It is their PPA time - time to plan, prepare and assess. All the staff in Year Six work very closely together to ensure all the children are given the best opportunities and there is consistency with the adults in the class. On these Thurdays Mrs Burton, Mr Cooper, Mrs Green and Mrs Cable are all in Year Six.
From the end of October, we have started to group the children for Maths. This means that Mr Waterfield and Miss Coull are teaching children from both classes. We have spoken in depth about all the children e.g. how they learn and what they need to learn. These are flexible groups which are reviewed every fortnight. If you would like to know any further information about your child and what they're learning in their group please contact us.
Year Six: Forgiveness
The Year Six children are growing up quickly and are getting ready for life away from Sherrier School. As a school we care about the "whole child", not just their academic success and so keen to see them flourish in all areas of their lives. As they grow up we recognise that the value of "forgiveness" will be key as they build relationships with others. So as a year group we will be ambassador for the christian value, "forgiveness." Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to show forgiveness in class, on the playground and at home and encourage others to do the same! If your child impresses you with how forgiving they are at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
Themes we will be thinking about
• Saying sorry and being repentant
• Showing remorse and making amends
• Forgiving and forgetting
• Letting someone off - is that fair?
• Remaking a broken relationship/friendship
• Barriers to forgiving another
• The cost of forgiveness
• Is there a limit to forgiveness?
• Forgiveness and justice
• The fruit of forgiveness
There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.
Bryant H McGill
Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.
In the Autumn term, children in Year 6 took part in a 'Dragon's Den' style project, where they researched, designed and presented an invention to improve a modern application. This was presented in the form of a portfolio and a spoken presentation. The children have also produced some fantastic blogs to document the amazing time they had at P.G.L. Please also see below an array of wonderful artwork on display from a range of times throughout the children's first term in Year 6.

Year Group Assembly - Caythorpe
Wednesday 12th October
Thank you to everyone who came to watch the assembly.
For those of you who can't make this assembly, don't worry because we will be arranging a CD of all the photos for every child to keep.
PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday but please have kit everyday because these dates could change. You will be phoned to bring your child's kit in if they do not have it for a PE lesson. This means they can then participate in the lesson.
Documents and Letters to download:
The document below provides more information about the Easter Revision session on 21st April. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide any further dates, however if you have prior arrangements and cannot make this date, all relevant information will be passed on.
We will set homework again after the May Half Term. They will return to completing a homework bingo after the holiday.
Thank you for your continued support.
To enable us to use the homework in class, please ensure it is given in on a MONDAY and will be given out on TUESDAY.
You are welcome to email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Text: The Arrival
The book 'The Arrival' is a picture book. Yes, we are learning reading skills with a book that doesn't have any words in it!!!
It is amazing! All the children have been able to interpret the pictures and make up their own decisions using the clues in the pictures.
We have been checking the book band of each child. Your child should be reading a text that is challenging them but they are able to understand when reading by themselves. As long as it is a book of the same 'level' then your child is welcome to read their own book.
This half term, we will be learning efficient written methods for the four operations and looking at problem solving. When you see a calculation make sure you know whether you'd work it out mentally, with jotting or with a written method. How would you work out 40x60?
Practising your times-tables will help with mental calculation needed to succeed in Maths. Percentages, fractions, decimals and ratio will all be much simpler once you know all your times tables. If you would like to practise the X-Factor sheets, please visit the Maths page.
Throughout this term, we will be writing a narrative. We are basing our story on the book 'The Arrival'. It will also link to our Philosophy and Connected Curriculum topic.
PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please have PE kit in school everyday because we might do PE on different days of the week. All children will need an indoor and outdoor kit in school. If your child does not have kit in school on a PE day then you will be phoned and asked to bring it in so your child can participate in the lesson.
This half term, our new topic is 'Identity'. What makes you, you? What do you like? Learn about genetics, inheritance and evolution. We will also be creating our own rap in the style of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air!'
Do you have a link or skills to this topic? We would love for you to visit or for you to give us ideas of where to visit.
