Hey Year Six,

Alongside your EXAM NINJA list, the document above might prove useful when preparing for the SPAG test. Click on the link and a word list should magically appear! There is no guarantee that any of these words will come up, but you can bet that similar spellings will! Make it your mission to smash it!

See you soon

Be happy!

Easter Homework 2019

Hi everyone

Firstly –  I hope you have a lovely Easter and come back having had a nice rest and some fun times (and not too much chocolate!)

However, as you know SATs week looms beginning Monday 13th May and you will want to be ready. So we cannot totally sit back and do nothing over Easter!  Here’s what you NEED to do and what I’d LIKE you to do:


  1. Reading. Reading. Reading. Lots of it if you can – and lots of different texts too! You all have been given non-fiction texts to read over Easter alongside your normal reading book. Be sure to question what you read and think deeply – especially about new / tricky words. Talking about your reading is just as important as the reading itself! And most importantly try to ENJOY your reading!
  2. Maths – you have a TIME paper with SATs-style Qs to answer. There is a letter to parents and a SLIP that needs to come back into school the first day back. Please ensure this is completed in full.
  3. Arithmetic extension test to complete and return to school. Aim for full marks. No excuses!
  4. Spellings to learn: Grand Spell coming up the first week back based on SUMMER SPELLINGS GROUPS 1-9


  1. A little bit of revision or catch-up learning where you need to – there are a wide variety of resources available to you now: CGP revision books, IXL.COM, the maths links from the Y6 class page, Mymaths and so on. If fractions isn’t your thing, then make it your thing by studying! If you are not the best at co-ordinates, there are plenty of resources out there to practise with.
  2. Become an EXPERT SPELLER. Dig out your EXAM NINJA lists – it’s these types of words that will come up in your SPAG test. Be ready to smash it!
  3. NOT WORRY. What’s the point? It’s just wasted energy. If you know that you are ready to give it your best and that you have tried hard then that’s all I can ask for. Be in a good state of mind for these tests. Be proud of your efforts and you will feel good about yourself.

Have a great Easter!

Mr Day

Homework 22/3/19

Hi everyone,

A reminder about this week’s homework:

  1. Make sure x3 reads recorded by Monday 24th March (since Sunday 17th March)
  2. Reading each day next week Mon – Fri – signed and recorded words please.
  3. SATs style reading comprehension test to complete – hand in Tuesday checked and signed please.
  4. IXL maths – x30 mins minimum – make a full A4 page of notes / diagrams about what you covered. This is due Wednesday 27th.
  5. Spellings to learn – gp 5 and 7 summer term.

Also – a reminder about ONLINE gaming / WHATSAPP squabbles and issues: if you take part in any unkind online activity this will not be tolerated. These out-of-school problems are taking far too much time away from learning in school and at a time where your focus should be on achieving your very best exam results, this is unacceptable. All parties to any unkindness or thoughtless actions in these forums will be put directly  into a school ‘reflection’ and parents informed. You have been warned. If in doubt, stay out of these forums or delete yourself from a group in order to stay safe and out of any possible trouble.

Mr Day

Shaw market debate

Children had a great time participating in a debate as part of learning about the British values – individual liberty and democracy. We discussed whether Shaw market should stay on the high street or move back to it’s old location behind the shops. There were strong arguments from both sides.

The Chill Factor

Everyone had lots of fun on our class visit to the Chill Factore. The morning was spent learning team building and survival skills before  venturing into the snow park where the class worked together to build an igloo and find hidden items beneath the snow. To finish the day, much fun was had travelling down the slopes in various ways


God and The Big Bang – November 2018

Year Six enjoyed a thoroughly thought-provoking day at Manchester Cathedral today: presentations by Dr Matt Pritchard (scientist and magician extraordinaire), Caleb Gordon (environmental ethics) and Hannah Malcolm (theologist and philosopher).

Not really…just wanted to say I hope you all had a great time over Halloween and stayed safe. Be careful if you are at a bonfire this weekend too…remember to follow the fireworks code!

The Great Fire of London

Mrs Hardman challenged us to put the fire out in Pudding Lane, but by the time we had got water from the River Thames the fire had spread! We had great fun learning why the fire of London spread and how hard it was to stop it getting bigger.
