Friday, 30th September

Dear Parents and Carers,

The end of another busy week. We have enjoyed looking back on our week at Stubbington and the children have written some very entertaining diary entries about their favourite experiences. We have some interesting Science lessons coming up, based on our field work there.

Next week is a big week for CAFOD fundraising. Year 6 will be working on three fundraising events – either a penalty shoot-out, a drawing competition or a cup and ball aiming competition. Your child will tell you which one he/she has signed up for. Donations of wrapped sweets for the cup and ball will be gratefully received. On Thursday we have Wear it Bright day and look forward to a rainbow coloured class.

We enjoyed looking at each other’s Home Learning Adventure books today. Please continue to encourage your children to work in them and to bring them to school each week. Home Learning diaries should be in class every day. There are now some Abacus activities posted for homework and we will try to add My Maths next week. New spellings will be sent home in diaries on Monday.

As always, please let us know if there is anything we can help you with.

The Year Six team.

Stubbington 2016

Hello from Stubbington, St Peters! All of year 6 are having an amazing, exciting time. We have got an activity called Earthquake. We were lucky enough to go into the woods to look for badgers, foxes and their habitats. We have had many encounters with the different wildlife.

We are also pond dipping, building shelters and experiencing seaside studies.

We hope you have enjoyed our little taster album of the trip so far. More updates to follow.

Year 6 Team


Welcome to year 6!

Dear Parents,

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Welcome Meeting on Tuesday. Due to administration restrictions, we are unable to upload our introductory PowerPoint, but will summarise the main points.

P.E. lessons are on Tuesday and Wednesday. Shorts are required for the Tuesday lesson. No-one will be able to borrow P.E. kit so please make sure that your child’s kit is always in school, kept in a draw string bag on their coat peg.

Home Learning diaries should be updated and in school every day. They will be checked regularly.

Children should make sure they have a library book for home reading. We have a class library session every Friday as well as opportunities to change books after school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 3.15 – 3.45. Children should always have a book available to read in school.

Pencil cases are not necessary as we have all the supplies children need, but if they wish to have their own coloured pencils or other items they will be able to use them in some lessons, with permission. At all other times the pencil cases should be kept in their tray. Children will be responsible for their own property.

All children should have a named water bottle.

Home Learning will consist of a weekly Maths task, daily reading, weekly spellings. Children also have a new learning pyramid each half term. (See below). Home Learning will be reviewed every Friday so books should be in by Thursday. Due to our upcoming Stubbington trip, Maths homework will be set on Friday 16th but will not be due until Thursday 29th September. KS2 spelling lists will be sent home this week, but the weekly spellings will be set on Monday 26th, pasted into their Home Learning diary.


We are all getting excited about Stubbington next week. Children will be told their room allocation on Friday and should have at least one of their chosen friends with them. We know that all the children will embrace the opportunity to mix with the whole year group and to get on with all of their room mates.

If there is anything else you need to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Miss Stapley, Mrs Turner, Mrs Fleming, Mrs Pfeiffer.
