Welcome back after what we hope was a relaxing Christmas break. Happy New Year to you all. We hope that you have had the best possible Christmas and that the children are looking forward to getting stuck into their learning.

The Year 6 Team are looking forward to another exciting term, which will provide a lot of new learning experiences as we focus more on the SATs that lie ahead.

The daily completion of reading diaries are still expected to a high standard. We also need to continue to use the ‘Reading Eggs’ online resource on a consistent basis to improve our reading and comprehension skills. We would also encourage you to listen to your child read and ask them questions based on what they have read to ensure their understanding. Children are expected to complete a task in their reading journals at least once weekly.

We will use the Maths SAT books as the main way of providing Maths homework, but we will occasionally also use the MyMaths program. If you are having problems accessing this at home, please inform your class teacher.

PE days are as follows:

Thursday – Soccer 2000 – Games Outdoor kit required

(Please remember to have your outdoor PE kit consisting of: jogging bottoms, outdoor trainers and a jumper/jacket. Also a reminder that jewellery must not be worn during PE lessons.)

We look forward to an extremely productive 2022!

Year 6 had an amazing time at Cadbury World on Friday 5th November. From learning about how our favourite confectionery is made and uncovering the fascinating story of Cadbury Chocolate, to adding our own favourite treats to a delicious pot of warm melted Dairy Milk and experiencing the thrills of the 4D cinema experience. This was a trip filled will lots of enjoyment and learning experiences. Please take a look at a selection of photos from our visit.

Year 6 focussed their learning during Science Day on taste. Our first investigation aimed to prove a scientific theory that children prefer sweet foods and dislike bitter tasting foods.
 Are you a supertaster? Well...Year 6 aimed to find out if they were by counting the number of fungiform papillae on their tongues. We painted our tongues with blue food colouring and repeated the counting 4 times and took an average to determine the total number. Our observations found that the majority of children were classed as tasters which backed up the scientific evidence.
