Will you be lucky and land on a special space this week?

Make sure you are learning all of your times tables at home so that you can collect your bronze, silver and gold badges! In Year 6, children are expected to know all of their times tables and corresponding division facts for up to 12×12. Do you know yours yet? 

Please try to read with your child at home atleast 3 times a week.

If your child has a reading scheme book (in the plastic wallet) please make sure they have it in school on Friday morning with a completed comprehension acitivity so that we can change the book ready for hometime.


Summer Term

This term our topic will be based around the Coast. Children will be carrying out cross curricular learning through this topic and will have opportunities to produce some fantastic writing based on this. To help the children develop a good knowledge and understanding of this topic, we will take part in a residential to Scarborough and Whitby to see what the coast has to offer.  We will also be investigating the disaster of the Titanic and its journey.


This term is full of exciting activities and opportunities for Year 6 to participate in before their new adventures to Secondary School.



Class Trips

Scarborough Residential

A fantastic time was had by all the children that attended the Scarborough Residential.  Five days away from home and lots of activities were completed while we were away. Trips to John Bull Rock Factory, Whitby, Scarborough Castle and the Sealife Centre were really exciting.  The children enjoyed ice creams, slushes, rock and chips.  The children loved playing on the beach and winning prizes in the arcades.

What a fantastic year group!


Victorian Classroom

Year 6 had a very exciting day exploring the lives of Victorian children when we visited the Victorian Classroom, in Sheffield.  The children played the roles of children that actually went to the school in the Victorian times and carried out duties which they had to do.  Playing with traditional Victorian toys, working in the laundry room and practising handwriting were just some of the activities they experienced.


Gainsborough Old Hall

In this half term, Year 6 visited Gainsborough Old Hall to get a feel of what Tudor life was like.  The children had to dress up in different outfits to take the role of a certain member of the household.  We had King Henry VIII, jesters, dancers, servants, guards and many more characters.  Being able to walk around the house and see the different rooms and what people may have had to do in there was really interesting.

Crucial Crew

This half term Year 6 have visited the Lifewise Centre to take part in Crucial Crew. 

"It was really fun because you got to do lots of enjoyable activities. My favourite one was in the pub because it was funny when you got to wear the glasses and throw the ball." Abigail (Year 6 Pupil)

Meet a Creature

Year 6 also got to 'Meet A Creature'.  They were able to observe and handle a variety of animals and got to play some really fun games. 

"I liked holding all of the animals and Dean taught us lots about them. I thought I was going to be a scaredy-cat but I surprised myself with how brave I was!" Sophie (Year 6 Pupil)

Healthly Relationships

Year 6 also had a visit from the Open Minds Theatre Company. They performed some different scenes for us to teach us all about healthy relationships. 

"I enjoyed watching the scenes and answering the questions. It taught me what to do and what not to do to make sure you are in a healthy relationship." Anthony (Year 6 Pupil)
