Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

It’s the start of another year and we have all settled into the new routines really well.  There are a lot of exciting topics to look forward to this term, including “I Will Survive”. We will be writing a descriptive piece based on “Kensuke’s Kingdom” by Michael Morpurgo, persuading people to visit our Imaginary Island, programming and E Safety in ICT, studying evolution, inheritance and adaption in Science. We will be exploring different techniques in Art, using different mediums.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Whitehough camp and created lots of wonderful memories. We challenged ourselves and learnt how to improve our communication and team building skills.

Don’t forget our P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday – please ensure you come in PE kit.

Homework (including spellings) will be given out on Wednesday and collected in on the following Tuesday.

Please continue to support your child’s learning and help them to remember to regularly read at home. We hope you will come back and look at our photographs to see what other fun things we will be doing over the upcoming year.

Autumn Term

We have been involved in the designing of our new library bus and are very much looking forwards to using it next half term.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whitehough camp school and made some fantastic memories. We put our orienteering and den building skills into practice as well as facing our fears on the Jacobs ladder and the high ropes.


We have demonstrating our understanding of reading through drama in English.


In Art we have been developing our pencil and painting skills by painitng animals that are significant in our class novel “The Explorer” by Katherrine Rundell.
