Welcome to Year 6!
We have two Year 6 classes:
Class 15: Mr Grenville Clubley is the teacher
Class 16: Mrs Tamzin Watterson is the teacher
Both classes are supported by a dedicated team of teaching assistants.

Welsh Week next week!
Please bring the homework (see newsletter from the last day of last half term) for details if you haven't already. It is due back on Monday.
In addition, the children have brought home slips to remind them that we request that they come dressed in their PE kit (suitable for outside) on Monday for the activities we have planned.
Spring term homework - please bring back on the 10th February.
Thank you to the children who brought their learning logs in to share with the class today - such a lot of hard work has gone into their models/recipes/writing and researching.
We have a busy week ahead next week. Monday morning, please bring coats as we are going to church.
Thursday is our panto trip. (Oh yes it is!)
Homework this week (sheet to follow early next week) is to start thinking about what design they would like to use for their Christmas cards and to bring in anything special that they would like to use to make it. We have card/glitter and other bits and pieces here.
Finally, we are doing lots of experimenting with light this week. If the children would like to bring in a torch of their own, to keep safe in their tray and to use in science, then it will be easier for them than sharing the few that we have left that still work!
Welcome back for the 2nd half term.
We are busy with the next part of our topic now, World War 2.
On Wednesday we have Tony Cope visiting for a WW2 activity day which has always gone down well in the past.
A new homework choices grid will go home with the children this week. It was lovely to see a wide range of homeworks brought in for the WW1 grid. We had a great sharing session where we learnt new things from each other's homework. Well done to those who made the time to complete some of the tasks.
Spellings are up and running again - week 7 this week.
The children have been shown how they can log-in to Mymaths whenever they want, and search for a topic they are doing in school. They can then complete lessons/activities/games to help consolidate what they have been doing, or they can move on to harder stuff if they feel ready. There will sometimes be set tasks allocated, but otherwise it is up to the children to start to identify where using it will help them.
And keep on learning those times tables with TTRockstars. The faster and more accurate the better!
Year 6 teachers
A week off homework this week. No spellings next week as it's Our World Week - year 6 will be learning a lot about Earthquakes and Tsunamis around the world.
Class homeworks (that were completed and brought in on time) have been shared and it was fabulous to see the children taking an interest in what they have been doing - and we've enjoyed lots of Trench Cake to share.
The homework task of the St Asaph Christmas card competition is due next week, so no new homework tasks this week. Instead, the children have been asked to complete and bring in their entries.
A new homework grid will be given for after half term, when we start learning more about WW2.
Thank you to all the children who have been bringing in homework tasks they have already completed from our menu of activity choices for WW1. Keep them coming as we will be sharing them in the penultimate week before half term.
Spellings this week ahead are to learn week 5.
Maths - mymaths logins are still active for all pupils and a homework to revise column addition/subtraction has been set ready for us deepening understanding and fluency with these methods over the next few weeks. Please alert us if you have difficulties getting on to mymaths. Use puffin browser on ipads to allow it to run. Paper copies can be made available if required. Please ask.
Welcome to the new Year 6. What a fabulous start to the new year. :)
