Practicing Spelling and Grammar at home.

A great way to practice your spellings at home is to use the following website: On the website you can focus on the key word rules from each primary year group. There are two main, free functions: Spelling Tiles and Practice/test.

Spelling Tiles gives a selection of activities that break the words down to help learn the words while the Practice/Test function tests you on the rule.


Underneath this text box, you will find the Grammatical Terms that the majority of Year 6 will be revisiting over the next six weeks. has lots of good explanation guides and I will be uploading further resources to help support.

On Thursday (28th November) Year six went on a WW2 trip to Beaumanor Hall. We travelled there by coach which took approximately 1 hour-it was in Leicestershire. We did loads of exciting activities while we were there. (All groups did things at different times so this isn’t in order).  

We went into a WW2 school: we made identity cards, Christmas postcards and we made a spinning top as a Christmas present for someone we lived with.

Next, we were lead into an underground air raid shelter, where we listened to a recording of bombs dropping and sirens going off. It was an immersive experience, because it was designed to feel realistic. It was scary and also a bit exciting because we’ve never heard this before!

After that, we walked over to the listening station. From the outside it looked like it was a cottage with normal doors and windows. However, when we looked inside, there was desks with radios, headphones and code sheets to help us work out the messages.

Overall, I think we all had a great time.  It was really fun having this experience and we learnt a lot in the process. Thanks to the year six teachers for taking the time to plan this trip.
