Welcome to Year 6C - Gandalf


Hello and welcome to 6C’s class page! My name is Mrs Carradice and I am class teacher for Gandalf class. I will be teaching the class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with Miss Holt as the learning support assistant. Miss Holt will teach the class on Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays.  This term, we will be continuing our amazing journey through year 6! We know we are going to have a great half term as the children work their way up to those all-important SATs tests in May!

Don’t forget, we love to see any extra learning children have done at home and they are welcome to share what they have done on Thursday, during our class assembly.

Mrs Carradice and Miss Holt


Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves, which is appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities    throughout the week to read a variety of texts and will then undertake an online quiz to assess their understanding of the text.


PPA Time

Mrs Carradice will be on PPA on Wednesday aftersoons. Miss Holt will teach the class during this time. Miss Kolaitis will also be supporting the children with their learning in Year 6.


In Year 6, children are expected to complete two to three pieces of homework a week.

Your child has been provided with both CGP English and Maths books to complete their homework. Each week, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks from each book!




Spellings will be sent home on Monday for the children to learn, ready to be tested on Friday. 


P.E. will take place every Friday afternoon. On Friday, if the weather is fine, the children will go outside. However, if the weather is bad, then P.E. lessons will take place inside. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school each week for these lessons.

We will also continue to go swimming this half term on Thursdays so please ensure children have the correct swimming kits for these sessions.


It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit, or vegetables and milk.  We also encourage your child to water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch. In addition to this, school will be providing a piece of fruit daily for each child.

Our Class Novel for this half term will be continuing to read… The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie.


Our theme work for this term will all be about Chocolate. We will be learning where chocolate comes from, chocolate manufactures and we will even be able to taste test different chocolate flavours. The children will even have the opportunity to create their own chocolate product based on everything they have learnt. 



Our P.S.H.E. topic for this half term will be about ‘Safe Relationships’. The children will learn all about healthy and unhealthy relationships, different types of relationships, families and friendships and ways of respecting ourselves and others. 


Our R.E. topic for this half term is… Hindusim
