Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
Miss Wallace, Mr Waterfield, Miss Truman and Mrs McConnell are very excited to be working with Year 6. If you have any questions, please ask at the door or email email@example.com.
The Autumn term was extremely busy for Year Six: the Caythorpe residential, writing adventure stories, learning about (and creating our own!) inventions and making a great start to maths by securing our knowledge of written methods.
The Spring term promises to be just as jam packed as we delve further into our topic 'A Child's War'. Read on below to find out more!
Our Reading and Writing sessions this term will focus on the text 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne. As we read more of the book, we will update this page with key questions and vocabulary that we have been discussing in class so that you can share this learning with your child at home. We understand that this book can raise questions about significant and upsetting historical events, so if you or your child have any concerns please speak to a member of the team.
Each week, children are sent home with a list of fridge words. For homework, we would like you to discuss the meaning of these words and try to use them in everyday situations.
Our new fridge words list will be updated here every week. See across for our current list of words. Their meanings are below:
diminished: to make smaller or less; to fade away
contraption: a machine or device that appears strange or unnecessarily complicated, and often badly made or unsafe
smirk: to smile in an irritatingly smug, conceited, or silly way.
interrogate: To ask someone questions aggressively or formally.
incensed: Very angry and enraged.
This year we will be teaching Maths through a scheme called Power Maths. As we start a new unit, we will update this page with the essential vocabulary, learning objectives and key questions that we will be discussing. Use the drop down boxes below to find out more about each unit.
It was lovely to see so many parents and carers at our SATs talk and open afternoon. We hope you found the presentation informative and that your enjoyed looking through the children's work so far. If you weren't able to make it, we have added the presentation to the Year 6 SATs information page. Please come and ask if you have any questions.
When? Friday 18th January

Our first topic of the Autumn term is called 'Tomorrow's World'. In this topic we will be researching famous inventions which changed the world and creating our own inventions linked to the mechanicals from our class novel, Cogheart.
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.

Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much.
