Sustrans have been leading a series of cycling events with Year 6 this term. We have been lucky enough to take part in a bike ride to Bill Quay Farm and will be taking a trip to local secondary schools in the area. This is to support our children with their transition; helping them to plan a safe cycle route to and from home to school in September.
These events also promote healthy living, with a emphasis on physical exercise, an important part of learning and growing.

Cluster Maths Challenge
Year 6 attended a ‘Maths Challenge’ morning at Heworth Grange, where four children took on four other schools in the cluster. They had to answer mental maths questions and group reasoning and logic problems. This morning was indeed a challenge but our four mathematicians secured a very well deserved 2nd place, with only 10 points between themselves and the winning team. Bring on the next challenge!!!
We were invited to St Mary's Church on Remembrance Day to mark the 100th anniversary of World War I. Every child from Year 6 laid a red rose at the Cross of Sacrifice to commemorate all the soldiers who fought and died in the Great War. After the ceremony at the memorial, we were invited into the church hall to have juice and biscuits where ex-servicemen shared stories with us about how they gained their medals.
All Year 6 were commended for their good manners and respectful attitude. Well done!
Girls in years 5 and 6 had a fantastic day at Kelvin Grove Primary.
They were persistent and worked well together to find solutions to difficult problem solving activities. All four girls were polite and well-mannered. Mrs Graham was very proud of you!
We are learning how to code in Scratch. Our current project involves creating a multiplication game with accurate algorithms.
Welcome to Year 6!
Through the study of human and physical geography, Year 6 is investigating different regions in North America and how they are similar and different.
In History, Year 6 is learning about the Renaissance in England.
We will be finding answers to questions such as:
What was life like before the Renaissance?
How was life improved during this period?
What was Leonardo da Vinci’s art like? How was it different to classical art?
Maybe you could do some research about the Renaissance yourself. Why not have a look on the internet or visit your local library?
Maths homework is given out on Wednesday and should be returned by Friday.
English homework is given out on Friday and should be returned by Monday.
Please make sure all homework is returned inside the homework folder.

It would be highly appreciated if you could support your child weekly with their reading and record your comments in their record book. So we can monitor how frequent your child is reading at home, it is important that they return their reading book and record book every week to be signed.
