A big well done to all of the Year 6 children for their resilience and positive attitudes during SATs week! All of your teachers are immensely proud of you. Well done, you should all be very proud of yourselves. 


03.05.2019 - Welcome back 

A big welcome back to all of the Year 6 children who have come back well rested and ready for the final countdown before their SATs assessment week (wb.13.05.2019). This week the children have continued to work hard for their class teachers and are determined to do well. Just to let parents and carers know that during SATs week all of the Year 6 children are able to attend breakfast club. There will be no charge for this as our fantastic PSA fund it for them, thank you! The children can come to breakfast club between the hours of 8am - 8.50am. The Year 6 team sent out a letter this week (03.05.2019) with more detail regarding breakfast club. If your child did not bring a letter home please ask their class teacher or the office for another copy as if you would like to send your child, we need you to return the consent slip 👍

Easter Break 


We hope all of the Year 6 children, parents and carers have a well-deserved two week Easter break. The Year 6 team will be sending home some revision packs if the children would like to do some revision over the holidays. We will add a link to the website with the answers so that you can support your child at home with their revision. We will also add a revision pocket book with guidance on approaches to best support your child. Once again we hope you have a lovely Easter break! 

A BIG well done to all of the Year 6 children, who once again continue to impress all of the Year 6 team. Their resilience and positive attitude towards their learning is forever growing in confidence. They have done so well in their last assessment week and all of their teachers are VERY proud of each and every single one of them.

Spring Term 2 


Amazing effort today Year 6 for World Book Day! There were lots of different costumes and a lot of thought put into them, you looked great. Thank you to the parents and carers for their costumes no

The children in Year 6 also worked really hard on World Maths Day (06.03.19). The children took part in mathematical challenges and activities throughout the day. It was lovely to see them all applying their skills that they have been learning since September. Mr Wibberley, as Maths leader, was very impressed!   


Welcome back to all of Year 6! We hope you had a well rested half term :) 


First week back has been already been a busy one! Miss Morgan, Miss Campbell, Mr Wibberley and Mr Lander were lucky enough to take 58 children to The Lea Green Centre, which is one of the country's leading outdoor education and adventurous activity centres, in the heart of Derbyshire. The rest of Year 6 stayed at school and also had lots of fun! They spent a few days with Mrs Insley making slime, baking bread, coding their own computer game and doing lots of PE! All of the Year 6 children have had an amazing three days back and have started this half term with a blast. 


Keep checking the website for updates smiley

Welcome back Year 6! This half term (Spring 1) in English, the children shall be writing about Charles Darwin, producing a biography about his life. Each maths group will continue to work through the Year 6 curriculum, continuing to secure their knowledge in the four operations.  Applying their skills across both arithmetic and reasoning. In Science they will be learning about Electricty and how electrical circuits work. Last term all the children worked really hard with their assessments and made great progress. The year 6 team are looking forward to yet again another exciting half term with the children as they continue to work hard and impress us everyday.

Autumn Term 2 

Welcome back Year 6! What a busy Autumn Term 1 we all had. All of the children worked their socks off and made lots of progress - making all of their teachers very proud! This half term we are looking forward to having just as much fun. 

In Reading we will continue to look at a range of text types exploring different types of questions linked to the text. In Maths each group will have a slightly different focus depending on the needs of the children. Across writing the children will be writing a balanced argument and a persuasive letter about whether or not graffiti is art or vandalism.

As well as all of their hard work that the children are going to be taking part in we are also really looking forward to going to the Pantomime - oh no we're not, oh yes we are frown...

Also as year 6 enjoying taking part in the World War Workshop so much he will be returning to school to help celebrate the 100 year anniversary. 

The Piano - Amazing Short

Our next genre of writing will be a short narrative based on the short animation of The Piano by Aidan Gibbons. So far the children are really engaged with the short film and have been looking at figurative language and inference.
