Mrs Lyatt:

Welcome back Year 6!


Important information

PE - For the first half term PE will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit including a white t-shirt, black shorts, black jogging bottoms, a black long sleeved top and trainers.  



  • Maths homework (maths booklets) and English homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following Friday.
  • Spellings will also be set on a Friday and there will be a spelling test the following Friday. Spellings can be found on the Year 6 page of the school website.
  • Reading. It is also incredibly important for your child to continue reading on a regular basis (at least 4 times a week). Your child can read to themselves or to an adult. We would also encourage 'book talk' at home - discussing the plot of the story, the characters, your child's favourite part of the book, making predictions about what they think might happen next.

Learning Celebration - June 15th 

It was lovely to welcome so many parents, carers and grandparents to our final learning celebration of Year 6! 

Thursday 18th May

Year 6 had a great time completing maths challenges during 'Outdoor Classroom Day.' The children had a number of challenges to complete including measuring the height of trees, investigating the girth of trees and collecting data to present in different ways.

Friday 12th June

What a busy week it has been in Year 6 and I just want to say how incredibly proud I am of each and every child with the way they have approached their SATs tests. The children have tackled the SATs with determination and great big smiles on their faces and I couldn't be prouder of them all. To round off the week, the children have just received their Leavers' hoodies!

World Book Day - 2nd March 2023

What a super day we all had yesterday! It was great to see so many children dressing up as a 'word' ready for us to become word collectors just like the character Jerome in Peter Reynolds' book The Word Collector. The children spent the day developing their understanding of vocabulary and they also got to exchange their books at the book swap. 

Maths - ratio and proportion

Masterclass cookery - making quiche!

Fit for Kids -Round 2.

Design Technology

Year 6 have worked really hard this week designing and making their tote bags during their DT lessons. The children spent time stitching the hems, seams and handles, and they also added a William Morris print to the front of their bag. The children all did an amazing job and their final products were fantastic!

Christmas Carol Concert

It was lovely to welcome so many parents and carers to the Year 5 and 6 Christmas Carol Concert this week. We are so proud of how well the children performed; they sang beautifully and enjoyed performing the carols. We are especially proud of Katie (Y6) and Edward (Y5) who played their instruments during the concert.

Christmas lunch!

Learning Celebration (29/11/22)

It was lovely to welcome parents to the first learning celebration of Year 6. I am sure you will agree, the children did an amazing job teaching the parents all about how to solve calculations involving fractions! Thank you to all those who were able to join us and we hope that you enjoyed learning about what the children have been up to this term in Year 6.

Anti-Bullying Week (14th - 18th November)

It was 'odd sock' day today in Year 6 and throughout the school. 'Odd sock' day marks the beginning of anti-bullying week in schools across the country. Each class, at Radford, has also taken part in a school assembly and completed an online assembly about what bullying is and how to reach out if bullying takes place. Take a look at our photos to see what has been happening in Year 6 today.

Science - Light

This term, Year 6 have been learning all about light. The children have developed their understanding of how we see objects, about refraction and about light is made up from the colours of the rainbow. 

Week Beginning 3rd October

In English, this week, we have been exploring formal and informal language. We identified formal and informal language in our grammar lesson and then analysed the features of an informal letter. Later this week, we will be writing an informal letter from the point of view of Jim - the main character from our class text 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty.

Radford Semele C of E Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, volunteers and parents to share this commitment.
