Welcome to the Year 6 webpage
Dear Year 6,
Welcome to Term 6! We hope you have had a good break from learning and enjoyed all the wonderful sunshine.
We are looking forward to welcoming some of you back to school this term and know that some of you will carry on with your learning at home. A priority whether you are at home or at school, is to help prepare for your transition to secondary school. This is an exciting change - even though we will be sad to say goodbye, we know you will be ready for this new chapter and all the opportunities it brings!
We will continue with daily learning in Maths and English, and our Science topic this term is evolution. In Maths we will recap work on ratio and proportion, then explore statistics and geometry. In English we are starting the term with poetry and will look at a range of texts and writing styles, including building suspense...
There have been lots of changes this year and we are so proud of the positive attitude you have shown in getting to grips with new challenges and exploring new opportunities.
Happy summer term!
The Year 6 Team
Celebrating our learning and positive attitude together!
Today, 15th May, we should have been celebrating the end of SATs week together and the positive learning and attitude of you-our wonderful Year 6 cohort 2019-2020. Instead, we are having a virtual breakfast together! Well done to all of you for everything you have achieved so far this year and everything which you will go on to achieve in the future. Everyone is very proud of you. Remember to send us your pictures, so we can add them to the slides!
Congratulations are in order!
Back in January, we launched the 'Ablaze Water Poetry Competition' in KS2. Lots of children from across the school entered some fantastic poems on the theme of water, so a huge 'well done' if you were motivated and got involved.
566 poems were submitted to Ablaze from schools around Bristol! The judges had a very hard job selecting which ones should be published, but after a lot of discussions, they finally picked 90: not an easy job!
The whole school is proud and delighted to announce that 4 poems were chosen to be included from our Y6 cohort: Ava, Poppy, Megan and Amelie. Congratulations to our 'soon to be published' poets. You can have a read of their fantastic poems below. Hope you enjoy them!
UPDATE!! UPDATE!! UPDATE!! UPDATE!! UPDATE!! UPDATE!!
We were contacted again by Ablaze recently, who told us that Amelie had won the overall category of 9-11 year olds and that Poppy had been selected as runner-up in the same category. Well done to both of them for this incredible achievement. In normal circumstances, there would be a prize-giving ceremony, which both girls and their families would be invited too, but unfortunately this is unable to happen this year and Ablaze are currently thinking of others ways to recognise their accomplishments!
