Welcome Back!

We have lots to do in Year 6! From Stanley Head to SATS! Despite having lots to do this year we will make it as enjoyable and exciting as we can. We have alot to cram in and lots of fun ways of doing so.

If you have any question please feel free to ask the teachers.


We are currently reading Phillip Pullman's 'Clockwork' and linking this topic throughout our literacy and even our Science! The children are really enjoying this so far!


Stanley Head which will be 5th-9th November. This is a HUGE trip in Year 6 and is an amazing experience for the children. It is a good opportunity for them to gain some independance before they leave for High School and we strongly recommend if you have not already signed up to go to, please come to the school office ASAP to ensure your child does not miss this fantastic opportunity. 

We also have a trip to RAF Cosford on 23rd October.


We have had an amazing afternoon exploring the heart in Science! We were fortunate enough to have some Pig's hearts that the children watched being dssected in order to learn about the function of the heart. This interactive experience gave children and insight into what a real heart looks like. Children, who wanted to, were allowed to touch the heart (wearing appropriate safety protection), they were amazed at how it was able to perform the functions they have been learning about in class. They were very excited and have thoroughly enjoyed the expereince!


In Science we are exploring the Heart and Circulatory system. We have started by looking at blood and making our own. We have all the components combined!


We have been investigating sentence structure and punctuation. The children have been utilising semi-colons in the correct places.

  • What day is PE?

    This half term PE will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your children have their kit in school on these days and that earrings are removed. If they cannot be removed by your child they will not be permitted to take part.

  • What day is homework due?

    Homework is sent home on Fridays and is expected back in school on the following Wednesday. Please ensure your child is reading at least five times a week and practicing their spellings. All homework is given to help children develop their skills at home and your help with this is invaluable.
