Welcome to Year 6

 Welcome to year 6. We hope you are excited to be back in school. We are looking forward to getting to know you all.


We hope you will enjoy seeing some of our learning

in year 6.

Learning Ambassadors


We have now begun our learning ambassador work. We are all helping each other to acheive year 6 standard.  We understand that you can only teach something to another person if you deeply understand it yourself. We are constantly changing who is the teacher and who is learning depending on our current needs.

Growth Mindset

We have reminded ourselves about the importance of having a growth mindset. First we sorted language into growth or fixed mindset. Then we self-assessed ourselves to identify which situations our mindsets are growth and which are fixed. We then learnt some strategies to help us to move from a fixed to a growth mindset.

General Information

Homework - Homework is given each Friday, this will include spellings and times tables including division facts. Please help your child to practise these at home.

Reading - Please make sure your child brings their reading book in every day and remember to read at home as much as possible.


We are enjoying our lessons with Mike the sports coach. It is lovely for us all to be able to exercise together once again. We are also completing our daily mile and trying to beat our personal best score to help us get fitter.

Zones of Regulation


We have leant about the 4 different zones and which emotion belongs in each. We also investigated better word choices for each emotion using our thesaurus. Next we tried to link facial and body language to each emotion. we tested our knowledge of this by playing picture bingo. It was harder than we thought it would be - some emotions are easier to recognise than others! We found with some facial expressions it was hard to decide the exact emotion and easy to mistake it for an incorrect one.
