Thank you for two wonderful parents evenings this week. I really enjoyed the opportunity to share the positive progression of the whole class with you. Unfortunately, we are experiencing a few absences as a class but do not worry as all the work completed in class is available on the 'Remote Learning' page. As always, I know you will aim to ensure your child stays up to date with current learning and I appreciate the support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself directly. Stay safe and happy! Thank you Miss Collier!
Firstly, I hope you've all had a wonderful half term! It is Sunday 1st November and I am super happy with the following girls: Orla, Maeve, Isla K and Frankie for using TT Rockstars during the holidays. Well done, this is the fantastic dedication to learning I LOVE to see in Year 6. These four girls can start off the week back with FIVE housepoints each!

Beautiful Handwriting...
Congratulations to all those children who have shown their wonderful handwriting this half term and received a handwriting pen. This includes: Alex, Annabelle, Jennifer, Maeve, Maisie, Frankie, Orla and Olivia! I'm excited to see who will be next, could it be you?

TT ROCKSTARS update 22.10.2020
Fantastic work form Izzy and Amber (S) for using TT Rockstars this week - YOU ROCK! Remember the October holidays is a perfect opportunity to develop your knowledge of tables - good luck!
Harvest Festival

For homework this week, Year 6 were asked to explore their understanding of Harvest through links with famine and CAFOD. I was overwhelmed by the effort many children put in towards creating posters, poems, songs and more. To include all their effort, I combined a range of work together - everything was from someone's homework (some phrases were swapped from different pieces to edit others). Today - 22nd October - Year 6 performed their piece to the whole school and parents at the Harvest Festival on zoom!

Science - Light!

This week (w/c 19th October), Year 6 have worked extremely hard to develop their knowledge of 'Light'. The class are able to describe: How we see! Reflection! Refraction! Spectrum of Colour! They even managed to complete a science investigation, thinking about different variables!

This evening, I have been blown away by a magical piece of reflective writing by Amber B, a quote from her piece to inspire you all...
"I show courage by being determined to succeed in my goals. I shoot for the stars but if I miss, I land on God's world and he gives me the courage to start again!" Simply beautiful!
Literacy Team Effort by Year 6!

Super proud of Year 6's work these past two days. They've worked tremendously hard to understand the importance of editing and up-levelling their work. Well done!

TT Rockstars Update 15.10.2020!
Thank you to those children that are recognising the benefits of developing your knowledge of multiplications and have accessed TT Rockstars this week: Miller, Oliver and Maisie - superb!
Macmillan Buns!

Year 6 really enjoyed demolishing their cakes today whilst raising awareness for the charity Macmillan. Thank you for all the donations!

Monday 5th October - Miss Collier's Shout Out!
Congratulations to Annabelle, Alex and Jennifer for achieving your handwriting pens - the first three in Year 6! Well deserved - keep up the hard work!
Super impressed with Isabelle for using TT Rockstars over the weekend and to Maeve for using TT Rockstars this evening! Well done girls - you rock!

09.10.2020 - This week the children have explored their understanding of Haworth and Leeds further through a range of activities.

St Margaret's Newsletters

Please find below our newsletter for this half term which tells you what we will be covering until October half term.

Live Stream Mass!

Today (2nd October 2020), Year 6 had a live stream mass with Father Peter. Frankie and Maeve had the opportunity to go to Church and read at the Mass.

Thank you to Jennifer, Miller, Amber B, Isla K and Michael for using TT Rockstars during the first four weeks back at school. Super impressed with your positive attitude to your learning! Well done!
We love to read!

Every half term, there will be new books in our favourite five section. Here we share our favourite five boxes with you. Take the opportunity to take a book from this section and have a read yourself.

Class Virtue of Curiosity and Faith!

In our second week back at work, our class focussed on the values of curiosity and faith. We used the book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to support our understanding of virtues and vices. As a class, we wrote a speech to share with the school.

RE - Called to Serve!

This half term, our RE topic is Called to Serve. These pieces of creative work simply had to be shared!


These first few weeks, the children have been exploring their understanding of vocabulary and are now beginning to up-level their work to create effective sentences!


This half term children have discovered the rhymes: Never Eat Shredded Wheat or Naughty Elephants Squirt Water to help them remember their compass points. The children have also worked extremely hard this work using Ordnance Survey maps with four-figure AND six-figure grid references! Well done Year 6!

We love to independently read!

VIPERS book reviews are a great way Year 6 are showing their knowledge about the text they've read. Here is a fantastic example from Jennifer!
