Welcome to year 6 and your last year in primary school! This is a really important year as you are now the role models for the other children in our school. There is a lot of work to do, but a lot of fun to be had too. Not only will you go on our fabulous residential trip to Robin Wood, you’ll also prepare for and take your SAT tests. Throughout the year you will develop your learning powers as well as building your independence, resilience, organisational and communication skills so that you are fully ready to take the next big step to secondary school.

STEM – Science, Maths, Engineering and Technology
We spent a wonderful afternoon building catapults that could launch marshmallows!
Virtual Trip to Chester Zoo – 7th December 2020
If we cannot go to Chester Zoo then Chester Zoo must come to us. Due to covid restrictions we could not study the adaptations and evolution of animals at the Zoo so we took part in a virtual trip instead.
Outdoor learning. We enjoy geting outside whilst the weather is fine so we took our Maths outside for a treasure hunt.
English – Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce
Using Cosmic by local author Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Y6 have looked at how to write exciting sentences. We focused upon using a mixture of complex and simple sentences for effect. We used our flair for drama to help us to get into character!
Science – Amazing Bodies
Do you know what is in your blood? Y6 do!
