Year 6 Lions

Welcome to the Year 6 Lions' page!

This year the Lions will be working with Miss Johnston, Mrs Sieczkowski, Mrs Gharda and Mrs Stirzakaer.

 The Lions' library day will be every other Monday and it is important children make the most of this opportunity and read a range of different texts and genres.



The Lions will be given a piece of maths and English homework each week. They may also be given topic, RE and science homework to complete. Every week they will receive 10 spellings to learn and are expected to get three signatures in their home reading book.


Year 6 'Drop In'

There is a very exciting opportunity for the Lions and Leopards to attend a 'drop in' club, Monday to Thursday, 8:15am-9:00am. In this club children have the chance to have one-to-one support. Image result for lion

Summer 2

This is the Lions' last half term at SMSJ and we plan to make the most of it! The Lions' have lots to look forward to this half term: the end of year performance, leavers' meal and class trips are just some of the things they can enjoy. In science we are looking electricity and in topic we will be studying the Islamic Golden Age. Children will also be looking at a variety of different religious stories and how they will face changes in school and their life over the next few years. The Lions' need their PE kits everyday this half term.

Summer 1

Summer 1 is a big half term for the Lions. It is when all the hard work pays off and the children sit their SATs. The focus this half term is making sure the children feel prepared and ready in reading, grammar and maths. They have all worked very hard and have dedicated lots of their time to their revision. We know they will do their best and that is all we ask of them!

Also this half term we will be looking at light in Science; Blackburn and the local community in Geography and dealing with loss in PSHE and RE. Our value is Love. Our PE day remains Friday and the children we be doing outdoor athletics. We are also continuing with the Super Writes! Look out for you child being the next Superman, Superwoman, Batman or Green Lantern. 

Spring 2

This half term the Lions will be working really hard up to their SATs. We have started revising in school and we hope they are doing lots at home too. This half term's English lessons will be SUPER writes. We will use a wide range of stimulus to write in all different genres. Each week there will be a SUPERMAN and SUPERWOMAN awarded to the two children in the class who have shone during the lesson. There will also be a BATMAN and SPIDER MAN award given to the children who has produced the most improved piece of writing the best piece of writing. I hope at some point in the half term every child will have the chance to win one of these awards. Keep an eye out of the website to find the weekly winners!

To start the term off, the Lions didn't enter the classroom but Mrs Pratchett's Sweet Shop. They had the opportunity to sample a whole array of treats whilst delving into the first few chapters of Roald Dahl's 'autobiography' 'Boy; Tales of Childhood'. It's safe to say the sweets were enjoyed by all (teachers included).

Dojo Treat Afternoon

The Lions reached the magic 1000 dojo points this half term. We had a treat afternoon involving children making their own apple crumble. At first the chopping, peeling and crumbling caused a few problems but they all persevered and created some very tasty crumbles.

To start off Autumn 2 we had a Harry Potter Day! All the children looked fantastic in their witch and wizard costumes and they had great fun about learning about mythical beasts, the history or magic and finally playing Quidditch!

Lion Tokens

This half term the Lions worked hard to earn lots of Lion Tokens and they have all made a fantastic start to Year 6! Unfortunately, we could only have four winners.

Fun Fantasy Week

The day Bennie came to visit!


This week the Lions have been doing some very exciting writing about Camp Green Lake. They had to persuade the reader not to send them. They had a special visit from a yellow-spotted lizard as they would meet many of them if they were sent to Camp Green Lake. 

The first Maths newsletter!

Each half term we will now send home a Maths newsletter with information about what your child is learning in Maths over the next few weeks. There are also tips and methods you can try with your child at home. The first one is attached below and hard copies will be handed out at meet the teacher (Thursday 23rd September 2016).


Help your children win Lion Tokens!

Across Year 6 this year we will be giving out Lion and Leopard tokens. These tokens will be awarded to any children who have demonstrated an excellent example to others. They can receive a maximum of one a day. For the token to become of value, the children must have it signed on the back by their parent/guardian to ensure that they are sharing the good news with you when they have done something well at school. Once they have been signed, children must bring them back to school to be counted at the end of the half term.  At the end of the half term, the top three children, with the most tokens, will receive some fantastic prizes. Please help your child to gain as many tokens as possible and don’t forget to sign them and bring them back.

The Lions' Luscious Library!


This half term the class library has opened for business. Children are encouraged to check out books from the library to widen their reading. The library is self check out and children can check one book out at anytime and for any length. Our class librarians (to be announced soon) will check the books back in for the children and then they can take out another. There are a wide range of genres and we have been lucky enough to receive a selection of new books.
