Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Mr. Blackburn , Mrs. Lord and Miss. Barlow welcome you to the year 6 page.

We love teaching the children in Year 6 and it is always great to see their enthusiasm and excellent attitudes for learning!

During the Spring  term our science topic will be:  Evolution- Where do you come from?

In Geography we will be learning - What makes the U.K?

During this term we will be continuing with our  French lessons. Miss Walsh will be teaching our P.E sessions every Wednesday and running our after school football club.


Year 6 loved our D&T project - Waistcoats 

Some of our children found this challenging but they applied lots of resilience, some  amazing end products were produced.






In English we  are reading 'Boy in the tower'  written by Polly Yo-Hen





At the end of the day we are currently reading The big book of the UK written by Imogen Russell Williams.





Please enjoy looking through our photos of some of the exciting things we get up to in year 6.





Look what we have been learning this year...

World Math's Day 2022


Year 6 created their own real life  mathematical questions using their surrounding for inspiration.



cardioid is a two-dimensional plane figure that has a heart-shaped curve. The word “cardioid” originated from a Greek word, which means “heart”.

"We have been learning to make Cardioids. We had to work out the multiplication pattern. Mine was 4x each number" - Ethan

"My cardioid followed a 2x number"- Harrison

Easter card competition


 Our class were asked to make an Easter card to be distributed around the care homes in our local community. This project was organised by a member of our community- Mr. Brian Fretwell.

Four cards were chosen as winners by Miss Briggs- Our art coordinator.

Well done everyone! 


Transition from year 6 to year 7


Transitioning to secondary school is a change that Year 6 children will have been preparing for all summer, and arriving at their new school can result in feelings of excitement, apprehension and nervousness, Alongside the transition program that your children will access  in school,  there are activities and ways to help your child prepare for the changes ahead of them at home.
