Welcome to Minotaur Class!

Miss Lembo, Mrs Dawes and the Year 6 pupils. 


Welcome to the final half term of Year 6!

Having begun our 'Make £5 Grow' project just before the half term break, we return ready for our 'making week'. During the first week, the pupils shall be putting their carefully considered plans into action as they begin creating and constructing the products they have planned as a team. We are eagerly awaiting our visit to Worksop market on Wednesday 12th June, where the teams will sell their products to the public. Let's see how much profit we can make!

For the remainder of the year, we will be extremely busy studying Vikings, preparing for our leavers assembly and taking part in transitions to secondary schools. Please see below for a list of diary dates for this half term. 


Each Friday, all pupils will receive homework which will link to the week's learning. Returned homework should be dropped into the 'Homework' drawer in the classroom by the Wednesday of the following week. Homework this half term will be different between pupils depending on their needs. Please see below for a reminder of the weekly homework and spelling list. All pupils in Y6 are expected to read high quality texts daily for pleasure.



During this topic, we will be taking part in dance (indoors) on a Tuesday afternoon and netball or rounders (outdoors) on a Wednesday afternoon.  It is the responsibility of the pupils to ensure they have their outdoor PE kit in school. Any pupils who do not have their PE kit in school on these days will lose points on Dojo and will be unable to take part in the lesson due to Health and Safety. Earrings should be taken out for PE lessons.
