'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School

WELCOME TO YEAR 6 EAGLES

Eagles are high flyers, tenacious hunters and have excellent vision. Once they have a goal in mind they strive to obtain it and never let it slip through their talons. As King of Skies, they soar high with ambition and innovation.

 

This Terms Theme

'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A WRITER’

 

Year six will be focusing on writers that have had an impact all over the world. JK Rowling, Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl, Anne Frank, Michael Rosen, William Shakespeare and Floella Benjamin have all left lasting legacies on the world of writing and the children will be exploring why. In addition to the creative elements, they will concentrate on the technical aspects of writing and what features contribute to various genres of writing. 

 

P.E & Dance Days

Please ensure that a PE kit is brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday. All items of PE kit (and school uniform) should be labelled with the child's name and class.

We will ensure that they are sent home at the end of every half term

 

Home Learning Days

All home learning is to be completed in your Home Learning books and will be given on a Friday to be completed for the following Wednesday. All pupils in Year 6 are expected to complete their Home Learning to a high standard and be handed in on the due date. Those pupils who have not completed the task will be expected to stay in during the first twenty minutes of Thursday lunchtime.

Thursday 13th September 2018 - Reach Outdoors - The Dewerstone

Wow! What a fantastic day Eagles have had with Reach Outdoors. We have shown that we can work  as a team and lots of us have really challenged ourselves to try new things. When doing our climbing, we all had to check that everyone was keeping up and talk to one another to help if someone was finding it difficult. Some of us were a bit unsure about gorge scrambling but once we started, it was AMAZING!

Monday 10th September 2018 - Maths - Multiplication

At the start of term, we have begun to think about our Maths skills. We have been using the dienes and other resources to help us visualise bigger numbers. In learning time, we have been ensuring that we are using the correct Mathematical language and showing our understanding by explaining our thoughts to others in the class. This is getting us to think deeper and apply our understanding in new concepts.

Transition Day

In July, we had a great transition day together. We worked so hard in our Writing and Art sessions that we have already completed a display ready for September.
