Year 6

Welcome to year 6


The year 6 team for 2022/23 consists of Miss Horsfall (6M), Miss Gudgeon (6N) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Dhami and Mr Baker (6M) and Mrs Nathwania (6N). 


PE lessons take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Homework is set for both classes each Friday.


The children will be travelling to the other side of the world as they read Michael Murpurgo's epic story: Kensuke's Kingdom.  This dramatic narrative will give the children the opportunity to imagine what life would be like when stranded on an unknown island.


In their geography lessons, the children will be researching why planet Earth is both an incredibly wonderful place to live as well as dangerous!  They will be discovering how different natural disasters occur, and the effects that they have on both the natural and manmade world.  More information about this topic can be discovered using the following link:

Spelling practice support

There will sometimes be games available for the children to access via the Spelling Shed website.  Children have already been given their logins, and they will be told which weeks they can access additional games to play to support them as they practice their weekly spellings.

Spelling Shed "how to" guide

Year 6 had a wonderful time helping to raise money for Children in Need.  As part of their fun-packed day, they had a blast playing a variety of games and working as a team to create their coin trails.  

When year 6 met the mayor (October 2022)

On Thursday 20th October, year 6 had the opportunity to meet the mayor and receive badges for their different roles and responsibilities.  Additionally, school councillors, house captains and this year's Head Boy and Head Girl were celebrated after being voted into their new positions.  We want to congratulate all the children for their dedication to their jobs.

Year 6's harvest assembly (October 2022)

During harvest time, year 6 presented an assembly that focused on the hardships and benefits of this season.  They had the opportunity to share this with parents and children in key stage 2.

The children focused on the thrilling adventure story 'Clockwork' by Philip Pullman.  They explored how the different characters felt during a vital point in the story through drama.  The freeze frames that they created were used to inspire the children when writing in character during their English lessons.
