Penguin - Year 6

Welcome to Term 6!


We hope you have had a lovely half term and are now ready for the final term. It's going to be really busy with rehearsals for the end-of-year production, sports day, Year 5 transition events and lots of Year 6 leaver events. We are really looking forward to it.


Mrs Seager-Fleming, Mrs Asher and Miss Ives



Key information:

  • PE dates to be confirmed at the start of term.
  • Home reading books to be handed into class every morning and changed then if needed
  • Water bottles in school everyday
  • Mobile phones to be handed into the class teacher first thing (these will be kept in the office)
  • Learning logs will be handed out on a Friday and need to be handed back on a Tuesday - please choose a task from the home learning menu.




Prayer for Term 6


by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit
help us to relish what is right
and always rejoice in your consolation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.



Journey through space, the final frontier. Navigate beyond the Sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our Solar System. Investigate the eight planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.  Get in a spin making simple models of the Solar System and listen to the haunting sounds of space themed songs. Then it’s 3, 2, 1, blast off.  Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone? Or are there other life forms out there?






We will be reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce
