Mr Blackburn , Mrs Lord 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 Summer term our science topic will be: Light and how we see things.
In history we will ask the question: Is it fair?
During this term we will be continuing with our ukulele lessons, and Miss Walsh will be teaching our P.E sessions every Wednesday.
Every Friday we will be getting our hands dirty- during Forest school teacher led activities with Mrs Gascoigne our level 3 forest school teacher.
In English we are reading 'Abomination' written by Robert Swindells
At the end of the day we are currently reading A selection of large quality picture story books.
Please enjoy looking through our photos of some of the exciting things we get up to in year 6.
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.
Year 6 had great fun during the end of the spring term, designing, creating and testing. Their challenge was to design and create a movable vehicle. The children raced their car in heats to see which vehicle went the fastest and then as a whole class they raced to find which vehicle went the furthest.

John Lewis and Waitrose launch 'Super Bear' design competition in support of the NHS John Lewis and Waitrose are asking children of all ages to help them create a 'Super-Bear' cuddly toy, to honour frontline workers and raise critical funds for the NHS. The competition was launched Friday 24 April, giving children two weeks to submit their designs. The brands are asking for toy ideas "That celebrate the spirit and fortitude of the fearless men and women working on the frontline during the Covid-19 crisis" To enter, children (or adults on children's behalf) must share their creations on social media using the hashtag #DesignYourSuperBear. The winning design will be turned into a real toy, to be sold exclusively in both Waitrose and John Lewis, with 100% of profits going to the NHS. The toy will go on-sale in October as one of the brand's iconic Christmas stuffed toys, beloved characters known to sell out year after year
World Book day 2020
In year 6 we enjoyed lots of activities to celebrate world book day. We arrived at school dressed as our favourite book character. During the day we took part in a quiz about books, designed and decorated potatoes as a book character and read lots and lots of books.
Brooke was chosen as the winner in year 6 for the most inventive costume she came dressed as a cupcake from the Children's first easy cook book.
