Welcome to Year 6!
HAPPY HEARTS WEEK
This week we will be focusing mindfulness. meditation, healthy eating and the benefits of regular exercise. Will will also talk about growing up, the changes our body will go through and a few things to expect along the way to adulthood. We give basic coverage, but the questions from children usually dictate what direction our lessons take. We are sensitive, respectful and understand that while children are curious, our role is to introduce puberty and ensure age appropriateness of the lesson content. We split the boys and girls into two separate classes as this allows for a more open and honest discussion.
Please email me (MarkerJ@hwbmail.net) if you have any questions!
Your child will now have a sign in name and password for RM EasiMaths- a website that will support your child in Maths.
At the moment, we are trialling this programme- the website is free for your child to use and we are looking forward to seeing the results of it!

Please see Ms Marker or Mr Lewis if you misplace your sign in details.
Spellings are up in the spelling section below.
Please check in with the website regularly.
Spellings and skills will be updated weekly.
For the parents and carers-
On the Parents page there is a short clip on the National Tests and what your child's results mean. This should help to explain the system and give you a better understanding of how your child has done in the National Tests.
If you do not have internet connection at home I can print some up and your child can bring home.
We will be working on similar tests at school but any practice at home really helps to develop understanding and build confidence. Thanks!
I have added some past test papers for Maths and Literacy at the bottom of this page. Great for revision in the lead up to our National tests!
Each week we will be putting up the spelling list and the skills we will be focussing on in Maths, English and Cornerstones. Please also keep checking the website for helpful websites and links to old tests papers that can help you with your English and Maths work.
