Welcome to year 6 and Hawthorn Class!


Please remember.....

  • always have a good reading book in school and read every day at home
  • to have your super 6 stationary (blue writing pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, sharpener, glue stick) every day
  • to continue to demonstrate a positive attitude in all you do! Remember - year 6 are the school's role models :)


If you wish to be considered for a House Captain role, ensure you have a speech or notes prepared to persuade your house that you would be the best person for the job. Voting is happening on Wednesday 12th September.


Please remind your parents that our Welcome Evening is on Thursday 13th September at 7pm. We would love to see them all there.




The Autumn Term's Topic is Ancient Greece

We will be learning about how the Greeks have influenced our lives today as well as how they lived 2000 years ago. Much of our English will be inspired by our topic, such as the Greek myths and writing non-chronological reports about your chosen area relating to Ancient Greece. Our art will also focus on vases, friezes and other artefacts from this time.

In science, we will be increasing our knowledge and understanding about electricity and then evolution. We will also be busy with PE, music, computing, RE and other exciting things!

Look at the web links above - you can practice your literacy, grammar and maths skills.  Aim at 20-30 minutes a day, if you can - little and often reaps rewards :)
