Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to our Year 6 class page. Here you can find out all the inspiring things we are doing in class as well as any useful information relevant to Year 6.

Year 6 is an important year in which children have the opportunity to take on more roles and responsibilities whether that be as a House Captain, member of the School Council, or part of our new Junior Leadership Team.

Our engaging Year 6 curriculum aims to challenge all our pupils whilst still maintaining an appropriate match to the children’s needs.

I’m so lucky to be teaching Year 6 this year and to be working with such a wonderful group of children. We have lots of exciting adventures to look forward to and I can’t wait to share them with you!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Please find below some of the things we have been doing this year...

On Monday 26th February, Year 5 and 6 went on a school trip to Fountains Abbey. The children spent the morning walking around the Abbey and sketching taking inspiration from the natural landscape and the shapes of the Abbey ruins. Year 5 and 6 then turned their sketches into extraordinary pieces of felt artwork.

In groups the children learnt how to layer the woollen fibres to build up a picture. Once the children were happy with their layering, they took it in turns to roll the felt and combine the fibres - this was really hard work and needed to be done 1000 times!

With some brilliant teamwork the children produced some fantastic pieces of art which they should be very proud of - well done Year 5 and 6!

On Thursday 17th January 2018, Year 6 took part in an exciting Science Day! Exploring the topic entitled 'Animals Including Humans', we made blood smoothies, investigated diffusion with skittles and watched the process of osmosis using jelly worms. Year 6 learned all about the pulmonary system and created a physical representation of how the heart works. A brilliant day was had by all, well done year 6!

‘I heard the wind in above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven’t got your lifejacket on. You shouldn’t be doing this… I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream.’ Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo

This term our lovely Year 6 class have been reading Michael Morpurgo’s dazzling adventure novel Kensuke’s Kingdom. Following Michael’s journey around the world in The Peggy Sue, Year 6 have been on a voyage of discovery during their English lessons. Writing ship’s log entries, newspaper articles and painting their very own illustrations using quotes from the text, Year 6 have produced some absolutely fantastic work which they should all be very proud of! We can’t wait to see what happens in the next chapter!
