Welcome to Year 6!

It was lovely to see all of the new Year 6 pupils and they have made amazing progress.

The vast majority of pupils are punctual and attendance is exceptional. We hope this continues.

As this is such an important year, please can you continue to support your child by listening to them read daily and ensuring they complete their homework - which will be handed out on a Monday and due in on Friday.

The spaghetti and marshmallow challenge.

The children loved the spaghetti and marshmallow challenge. They had to work in teams and create the strongest structure. As you can they were very successful and while they were having fun; they also developed scientific skills and social, team building skills.

Well done year 6.

Useful Links

Here is a link to all the Year 6 spelling words:


We have been developing our historical skills this half term, through the topic on the Ancient Maya. We have looked at various stone carvings, found at various sites in Central America, drawing conclusions about what it told us about their beliefs and their lives.

In English, we have written reports on various aspects of The Mayan life. We are now in the midst of writing character descriptions on characters from a story based on The Day of the Dead- a festival which originated from the Mayans. You can watch the film by following this link

 In maths we have been exploring fractions using the bar modelling method. During Discovery Week we have been 'visiting' Guatemala and creating various art pieces also linking this to our topic.

In IT we have been creating our own E-Safety board games. This is enabling us to understand the dangers online and how to access the internet in a safe and responsible manner. In French we have been learning how to pronounce the days of the week and the month of the year.  

Finally, in PE we have been exploring dance and are in the process of choreographing our own. Watch this space to see some clips of our creations.

Mrs Donnelly and Mrs Cassell are so proud of the children’s achievements so far this year.
