Welcome to Year 6 Class!


Meet the team…

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all! I trust you all had lovely break. In this newsletter I hope to give you some useful information about the learning opportunities that your child will experience this term. I would like to continue building positive partnerships with all parents and guardians, in order to ensure the best possible learning experience for the children. If you have any queries then please feel free to contact me in school.  

Mr J G Paynter
This term’s topics are… (we will continue our topic Frozen Kingdom for the first few weeks)

Pits and Ponies

How did it feel to work in the coal mines of Wales? How has the coal mining industry changed over the years and does it have a future? Explore these questions and more through this topic about the coal industry and its impact on the towns and valleys of Wales.


Blood Heart

Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry…blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore your circulation system! Now surgeons don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies.

How you can help your child

* Practise times tables with your child.

* Read as much as possible and question your child about the text they are reading.


Useful Information



Class Homework (out on Friday in on Wednesday)

Reading (Every night if possible as this is so important)



Reading books:

Please read with your child every night (or as often as possible) for at least 10 minutes.  They should bring their reading books to school every day.



PE days and required kit:

  • Gymnastics and games kit will be needed on a Tuesday (so trainers and clothes suitable for outdoors). Dependant on the weather.

Please send in an old shirt for your child to wear during art and craft activities (Any spares will be gratefully received).    



As a school we are working hard on promoting the importance of spelling correctly. This term we are having a big push on spelling accurately in our work and trying to make spelling fun. Our aim is to produce capable and independent spellers through an engaging and challenging whole school approach. All children will be given spellings each week to learn and will be assessed through activities during the week.
