Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 6 Page


Welcome to the Year 6 page.  Here you will find information on the areas of study within Year 6, events and photographs of our adventures throughout the year.
This term, our topic is A Child’s War.

In our groups, we will be reading Goodnight Mister Tom written by Michelle Magorian. This story takes place during WWII featuring a young evacuee Willie, who travels to Little Weirwold by steam train to live with Mr Tom. The Y6 staff love this book and are sure the children will feel the same way too.

Mrs Round and Mr Oliver’s group will also read Friend or Foe written by Michael Morpurgo. This book also takes place during the war where two evacuees, David and Tucky feel like their the war is a long way from their new life in the countryside.

In science, we will be looking at electricity and circuits. Children will recognise that light travels in straight lines and will be able to explain why shadows have the same shape as the object that casts them.

In Design Technology, children will have the opportunity to bake carrot cookies using an authentic wartime recipe and food that was rationed during the war. We are hoping to do this without setting any fire alarms off!

News

Year 6 will join the Year 5 children on a lovely walk on Thursday 26th September.
We will be setting off from school after 9.00am and walking through the picturesque countryside of Kildale, heading towards Guisborough Forest. All children (and staff!) will be exhausted by the end of the day so at least you are guaranteed a quiet evening.
All details of this trip and clothing needed is on the letter that has already been given out. if you are unsure of anything however, please talk to a member of Y6 staff at the end of a school day.

Homework

We do not have set homework yet in year 6 but do expect all children to read their Kindle daily ensuring the planner is signed.
A list of spellings that we expect all children to use in writing are featured on page 100 of their planner. Please encourage your child to practise these as much as they can as they are an invaluable tool.
All children have log-in information to Reading Plus. This can be accessed via an ipad or computer.
We would ask all children to read texts from this programme before answering questions. We understand that not everyone is fortunate enough to have equipment for this so have ipads available for children to use every morning at 8.30am for Book and Bagel Club.
there are no excuses!
Mr Waterfield likes nothing more than awarding prizes for effort and has given out several chocolate bars already to those children that have made a conscious effort to attend our Book and Bagel Club to catch up.

Events

Staff are counting the days already to the residential to Carlton that has been booked for Wednesday 11th December to Friday 13th December. More details of this fantastic opportunity to follow.
