We are so proud of the progress the Year 6 children are making. It is not long now until they will get an opportunity to show their progress in their SATs tests in May. They are working incredibly hard in school. Here are some links so Year 6 can continue their learning at home to prepare them for their SATs tests in reading, maths and SPaG.

1. SATS Boot Camp

This a brilliant resource (as we all know) and we really encourage you to complete some revision tests on here. It will help us to identify the areas of improvement for each of you.

Remember, there is also a revision section (for every maths, SPaG and reading skill) on here, with videos and practice questions.

We will be giving lots of golden tickets out for children who have completed activities on there.

2. Times Table Rock Stars

Why not spend 5 minutes a day practising your times tables?

If you are confident with your times tables, you could set yourself a speed challenge. How fast can you do them? Can you improve on your speed?

Again, we will be giving golden tickets out for this too.

Year 6 researched Ancient Egypt at Liverpool's World Museum, created pyramids out of Kapla blocks and even recorded a Playmobil stop motion film about mummification! A massive well done.

We're really proud of our Year 6s. On GEM Day, they took on different jobs across school, and they showed what hard-working, skilled professionals they truly are. And they even filmed this special report all about it!

Year 6's experience at Ghyll Head was unforgettable - filled with adventure and incredible moments with our friends:
