Trent Class Year 6

April 2017 - Summer Term!


Welcome back everyone!

We hope that you have had a wonderful Easter break. It is lovely to see that you have come back with your brains fully charged as the SATs are only around the corner! A big thank you to the parents for supporting the children whilst they have been revising at home. Just a quick reminder that Education City homework is set on a weekly basis for the children to use as a revision aid and this provides them with a great opportunity to discuss their homework with you in an interactive form.

SATs Week

SATs week begins on 8th May and the timetable for tests is as follows:


AM - Session 1

AM - Session 2



Reading Comprehension




Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation

Spelling Test



Maths Paper 1 Arithmetic

Maths Paper 2 Reasoning



Maths Paper 3 Reasoning








It is essential that the children arrive in school on time every day that week. They are allowed to bring in a healthy snack to have between tests and a water bottle is advisable. PE kits will also be needed every day as well as their well-used Revision Folders!

After SATs, both classes will be embarking upon their much anticipated trip to the Isle of Wight! The children (and us) can’t wait! We will be leaving at 9:30am on the Sunday and will arrive back on the Friday at approximately 2:15pm. For more information please attend the parent’s meeting on the date specified below.

Here are some important dates:

Mon 8th - Fri 12th May: SATs week

Happy New Year - Welcome Back!

Ahoy there me hearties!


It’s back to school…and time for some swash-buckling adventures!


Our topic this term is ‘ISLAND ADVENTURES’ so prepare to tour the world.

The ‘TREACHEROUS TRENT’ will be guiding this motley crew around the world in search of Captain Crossbones’ treasure and we will be stopping off in different countries so that we can learn about other places and their cultures.

Look out for the clues so that we can beat ‘Terrible Tay’ in finding those ‘pieces of eight’!


In Maths this year we are continuing with ‘BIG MATHS’. This involves knowing 36 Addition Facts and 36 Multiplication Facts (Learn Its) in 100 seconds or under…a challenging task for some of us, but one I know that we can all achieve with a bit of practice at home! There is also a ‘Beat That Challenge’ which involves being able to use, understand and apply a range of numbers (negatives, decimals, percentages, fractions, millions and so on!)…thank goodness we are all such mathematical superstars!


And then there are the exciting SATs to look forward to! We will be working particularly hard in Maths, English and Science so that we can all achieve the best results that we can! Not long now…Monday 8th May is when it all starts…an important date for your diary.


I’d like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone for their really generous Christmas gifts…I certainly enjoyed them all! And I hope that Father Christmas was just as kind to all of you!

September 2016

Welcome to Trent Class!

Welcome to a new year and a new class at Westbourne! Can you believe this is your final year here?!

And what a busy year it’s going to be!


As you already know our topic this term is The Anglo- Saxons; a topic we always like to enhance with a trip to Southwark Cathedral where we can spend the day looking at real-life artefacts and learn more about this particular era in Britain. Details about that will follow later on this term.




Before that though, we have our very exciting residential trip to Thames Young Mariner to look forward to on Thursday 15th September. We will have a super time there getting to know each other better, as well as learning how to build rafts, race them and become excellent kayakers! I can’t wait!




In class you will have the best time if you follow all the rules as carefully as you can…and here are just the basic ones to work on:


  • Be smart!
  • Be smiley!
  • Work hard!
  • Be punctual!
  • Always complete your Homework to a high standard!
  • Always hand your Homework in on time!
  • Be responsible!
  • Always set a good example to the younger children!
  • Be kind!
  • Know your Big Facts accurately and at speed!
  • Read at least 6 times a week!
  • Always try your very best!




All key dates and activities are detailed in the Year Six Newsletter which is accessible on the school website.

The most important dates for you to remember so far are:


  • THURSDAY  15TH SEPTEMBER…our trip to TYM
  • WEDNESDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER…our Class Assembly


This is going to be a brilliant year…so good luck, work hard and always BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE!
