Base 6

Welcome to Base 6


Miss Watton, Mrs Rodgers and Mr Phillips

We are the Year 6 class here at Randlay. It is our responsibility to set an example to rest of school. We pride ourselves on high standards and excellent work. However, with hard work comes extra responsibilities and rewards. We have lots of exciting things to look out for this term so watch this space!

Autumn term 2023

This term, our topic is all about Space. In Science, we will be learning all about the planets in our solar system and why we have the seasons and day/night. We will also be learning about the space race in our History lessons. In English, we will create our own space gadgets and write a diary entry for a mission to our own mystery planet. 

Our class reader this term is... 

"Phoenix" by SF Said 

The supernova is coming...


Lucky thinks he's an ordinary human boy. But one night, he dreams the stars are singing to him and wakes to find an uncontrollable power rising inside him. 


Now he's on the run, racing through space, searching for answers. In a galaxy at war, where humans and aliens are deadly enemies, the only people who can help him are an alien starship crew - and an alien warrior girl, with neon needles in her hair...

Reading is so important for a child's development. Reading just a few minutes a day has a huge impact on a child's ability to access the rest of the curriculum. If a child reads regularly, their writing will improve, alongside other core curriculum areas.

















We ask children in Year 5 and 6 to read at least five times a week and write comments in their diaries for these reads. You should use the example comments in your diary to help structure these comments. We are looking for one vocabulary, one retrieval and one inference comment per week. The other two comments are your choice. We check Reading Diaries on a Thursday, so make sure your diary is in school on this day. 


Use the link below for some help with how to write your reading comments:
