Year 6 Trip to Houses of Parliament

On Wednesday  24th October, Year 6 went to visit the Houses of Parliament in London. We met local Loughborough MP Nicky Morgan, who presented us with certificates. It was fantastic to learn how Parliament began and how laws are created. We also had the opportunity to see a live debate in the House of Commons! It was a fantastic day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Dear Year 6,


Have a look at the picture below.  Write a story based on this image: there are questions and ideas to help you.  Use year 5/6 grammar objectives (paragraphs, parenthesis, semi-colons and adverbial phrases and clauses).  Think about how you will set the scene in the opening paragraph.

Complete your story over the weekend for Monday please,


Thank you and have a great weekend,


Mrs. Abell and Mrs. Davis

Dear Parents,


Swimming will not be happening this Friday but will begin the following Friday 7th September.  Today, children are bringing home a reading challenge which is an ongoing task for the term.  Homework books will be coming home soon.


Please  do take a look at the new long term plan for year 6 outlining everything we will cover this year as well as the end of year 6 expectations below.  Children have already tackled the 2018 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling SATs test and it really was totally fine - and even quite fun as we did it as a treasure hunt around the room.


Thanks everyone,


Mrs. Abell and Mrs Davis
