Welcome to 6DDM!

Welcome back to school after the half term holiday. I hope you all had lots of fun and are ready for another action-packed half term taking us to Christmas!

Please see the separate link lower down on our page for the photos linked to our visitor in school as we started back – Mr Egypt an Egyptologist with over 40 years experience. It really was a memorable and entertaining visit – well worth the donation to be able to experience such a day.

This term we will continue learning all about The Ancient Egyptians. We will continue to enjoy reading ‘Secrets of a Sun King’ (the brand new book written by Emma Carroll) and will be completing this exciting story and find out what happens to Lil, Tulip and Oz. In Science we will be learning about and investigating Electricity. 

In Maths we will be continuing to focus on our arithmetic skills – we will crack the pesky Arithmetic SAT paper! One new thing for this term is the replacement of the Beat That weekly tests. These will be replaced with the new ’99 club’ – a series of mathematical questions still to be completed within a given timeframe. These tests will still take place every Thursday in class and still form part of the pupil of the week eligibility. See the main school website for more details.

As Christmas approaches, we will be enjoy creating Winter Art pictures and writing Winter poems for the display board outside our classroom.  We will also be busy rehearsing Carols for our Carol Service which will be taking place in school on the 18th and 19th of December – we hope you can come and join us.

Things to remember:

P.E. is on a Tuesday (outdoor) & Wednesday (indoor) (remember your P.E. kit)

Spelling test each Friday

’99 club’ test each Thursday

Lastly, the expectation is that reading will be recorded in the diary at least 3 times a week – this diary then needs to be in school on a Friday morning to allow eligibility to pupil of the week.


(1 for reading 3 times a week, 1 for maintaining or beating the ’99 club’ score and a final one for a good effort with the weekly spellings – ideally at least 8/10)

8 weeks and counting to the Christmas break – lets make them memorable ones.

Go team 6DDM!
