Year 6 2019 - 2020

Please check the homework tab for updated home learning tasks - Mrs Hughes and Mrs Lees also update online tasks. Each week I will put up the lesson plans for the day that the children are back in school, for children at home to follow. LBQ codes will be tweeted out when we use this resource. 


For parents who may be struggling to teach their children certain aspects of maths, Third Space Learning have complied some easy to follow guides to the different concepts your child needs to understand. The link below will take you to a range of helpful resources. 

✔️  Division 
✔️  Fractions 
✔️  Comparing Fractions, Decimals and Percentages 
✔️  Multiplication

Welcome back to Summer Term 2. We know things are still different but we know you are all staying safe and working hard at home. Well done to everyone who has accessed the PurpleMash tasks, we have enjoyed chatting with you and giving you feedback. Mrs Lees and I miss you all lots but know we will see some of you in the next few weeks. I will continue to set home learning tasks and when some children are back at school, the children at home will be able to see what we are doing and follow the activities at home too. 

Keep up all your hard work but remember to take time for yourselves also. If you haven't accessed any online tasks make sure you do, I can see who has been on daily. 

The brain is a muscle, the more you train it, the bigger it gets. If you are looking for a creative break, check out the well being page for some activities, please send any images of you working to our school Twitter - we love seeing how you get on. Stay safe! Mrs Hughes wink and Mrs Lees smiley


This week’s and next week’s learning challenge is to create a poem about your time in lockdown- what are your feelings? Has anything changed? Do you appreciate anything more? Do you miss anything? Send in your poems to the school email address and I will post them on the website. Please send any work/photos/drawings to  @stoswaldscep as I would love to see all of your hard work!

The School Day Begins

The school day begins with registration at 8:55am and we really appreciate prompt time-keeping to get the children off to a good start. Each day we begin with reinforcing basic skills in Maths and English so it is vital that your child is in on time and ready to learn.

Reading diaries should be signed each night and will be checked on a Monday. Please spend time discussing the book that your child brings home with them. We also encourage the children to read a range of other texts in addition to their home-school reading book. We would be grateful if you could comment on other books that your child reads at home.

UNICEF Rights and Responsibility Article 16


Children have a right to privacy. The law should protect them from attacks against their way of life, their good name, their families and their homes.


School Council

Our council representatives were chosen by the class in a democratic vote. Each child performed a speech to persuade the class to vote for them. Well done to everyone who put their name forward. Our winners were:

Isla and David (Y6 Representatives)

Year 6 also represent Reception class as School Council members. The representatives are:

Ava and  (Reception Representatives)


Golden Apples

We have promised to try our best to gain our 5 leaves for : Service, Community, Justice, Friendship and Creation.

Children's University

At the end of Year 6, we have the opportunity to graduate from Children's University (as long as we have earned enough credits). We gain credits through attending after school clubs, participating in sports teams for the school, jobs we do in school and also by having our Children's University passports stamped at learning destinations for example: museums and clubs outside of school. Passports are available to purchase from the school office.

We are hoping that we will all graduate this year.


Study Support

You are encouraged to attend Study Support on Thursday after school as you will have help, if needed, in addition to having access to the resources in school.

Spelling website for support:

Physical Education

You will need: black shorts, a red T shirt or white T shirt, black pumps (indoor), trainers (outdoor) optional.



The correct swimming kit is needed for pupils to be allowed into the swimming pool.

Girls will need a one piece swimsuit plus a swimming hat and boys will need swimming trunks (not shorts) and a swimming hat.

Year 6 will be swimming in Spring term.

An Important Note to Parents and Carers.
