Welcome to the Year 6 class page for Salamander class (Miss O'Toole), Springbok class (Mr Gould) and Shark class (Miss Dunk).
Welcome to Year 6.

You will be given Maths homework which will include a Maths activity as well as weekly times tables. English homework will consist of a writing or grammar activity, along side your weekly spellings. Spelling test will take place on Tuesday.
 
Please make sure you are reading a range of texts at least three times a week and recording it in your reading diary.
 
Please make sure you are learning your year group spellings. These will be stuck in your yellow homework books.
Year 6 are currently learning about the Normans. We have studied the Bayeux Tapestry which depict the events leading up to the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
 
Watch this space for some examples of their artistic version of this historic event!  
Term 5
 
Year 6 have been cooking Vegetarian Jamaican Patties this week. We made pastry, the filling (with lots of chilli!) and then filled our delicious mixture into our turmeric flavoured pastry.
 
They were DELICIOUS! Why not try our recipe for yourselves? Please see above to find the link to the recipe. Happy cooking! : )  
Broadlands visited us this week to talk about what to expect when moving to Year 7! Lots of interesting questions were answered and it was lovely to see how excited the children are about their move to Year 7, wherever they go!
