It is important that you are bringing in your own equipment to school each day. Here's what you should have in your pencil case:
It is also important that you are logging your home reading in your home/school diaries each week. You should record your reading at least 3 times each week for a minimum of 20 minutes for each log. Your teacher will be checking this on a weekly basis- housepoints are on offer for those who are reading regularly! Don't forget to ask your grown-ups to sign your diaries!
You can now pay in the canteen with your fingerprint providing you've visited the finance office and had your biometrics processed.
Homework will be sent out to year 6 on a Thursday and expected back in school on a Thursday.
Spelling test day will differ between classes, your weekly spellings can be found on this website too. Should you lose your spellings you can always ask your teacher for another set.

For much of this term, pupils in KS2 have been taking part in the ROAR21 competition launched by 8billionideas and Lions International. Pupils have worked in groups to create a world-changing solution to an existing problem, designing and creating models and adverts. We had the challenging job of picking our winners a few weeks ago from a very strong field.
Highly Commended were the teams behind Mugometer and Shower Power, both with practical solutions to everyday issues. The Best Jingle and Advert went to the Mop Skates team (very catchy!) and the Best Prototype was awarded to the Ice Air team (future engineers in the making). Our Overall Winners were Grace Willcox and Phoebe Robinson, with their creation of the Smart Wallet. They produced a highly polished presentation, showing their full creativity and flair.
Earlier this week, the national finals of the ROAR21 competition were hosted virtually. We had everything crossed for our fabulous winners but unfortunately, they came up against strong competition and were not successful this time. Huge congratulations to all who took part!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid webinar
A few days ago, children from Year 6 took part in an exciting, inspirational webinar with Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. We were treated to a reading of his latest book (Diary of a Wimpy: Big Shot); got to know a little more about Jeff including how he got into drawing and were given top tips on how to draw Greg Heffley and all his friends. We even had a sneak preview of the upcoming, fully animated Wimpy Kid film!
Here are some of the amazing creations drawn by our fabulous Year 6 artists:
We are SO proud of our Hugh Sexey maths team who attended the primary mathematics festival at Wells Cathedral School on the 3rd of November.
They had to undergo a range of mathematical challenges and they created a poster in record time all about symmetry.
They cooperated beautifully as a team and earned themselves 2nd place out of 11 other schools. How amazing is that?
A huge well done to Khushi (6EC), Ethan (6NR), Henry (6ILH) and Grace (6JC). Also, a big thank you to Mrs. White and Mr. Jarrett who helped prepare and support the group for the event.
Take a look at their hard work below:
