Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Mr Ascroft
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Brooks
A massive welcome to all Year 6 children, parents and visitors. I am extremely pleased and excited about working with you this year. Year 6 is hard work but I know, together, we are going to have a very successful year. I promise to do my absolute best for the children in Year 6; if there are any queries or questions you have, please do not hesitate to talk to me after school.
I love sport and still play football and cricket on a weekly basis as well as supporting my favourite team; Tottenham Hotspur! Long walks in the countryside and visiting new places is something I look forward to and I look forward to finding all about the children's hobbies throughout the year!
In Year 6 Science, we explored Light and perception learning about how we see, how light reflects, how light moves, what colour light is, understanding light pollution and completing two investigations involving torches, mirrors and shadows!
Year 6 have really enjoyed being creative when presenting their work about Ancient Egypt...
St Bernadette Relic Tour 2022
The children in year 6 were honoured to take part in a once in a lifetime opportunity- to visit the relics of St Bernadette.
The children travelled to Doncaster on the bus and continued their Pilgrimage of Faith by visiting St Peter in Chains church where the relics had travelled to, all the way from Lourdes.
Take a look at the video below to join us on our journey.
Year 6 have completed their first RE journey - Loving. We met our learning objectives through different forms of writing, art, freeze frames and role play! The children have produced some fabulous work...
Year 6 have completed the Year 6 unit on Place Value. They understood number, place value, rounding and negative numbers!
Year 6 children's first Writing journey was building up to writing a set of instructions on the process of mummification. We immersed ourselves in instructions by following a map and guidelines around school, we analysed the key features of a range of instruction texts, we learned how to include key skills, then we researched, drafted, wrote and edited an independent write. They did an amazing job!

Welcome back prayer
►Reading - Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Alongside this, it is also key that all children select their own reading for pleasure book which they will also have opportunities to read and share with others in school. I can't wait to hear about all the 'Recommended Reads' from each of the children and any new vocabulary which they may have collected on their reading journeys.
►Spellings - Every Friday, all children will receive a new spelling list based on spelling rules/patterns which have been our focus in class. Please can all children learn ready for the following Wednesday. It is also key that the children understand any new words met and can apply into their writing. To support this, please could all children take each spelling word and put it into their own engaging sentence which can shared back in class. All written homework must be presented to the highest standard.
►Homework - All children will be given weekly English or maths homework. This is to be completed and returned to school as required.
►PE - PE will take place every Thursday and Friday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black shorts. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate in this key subject.
