This is where you will find important information about life in Year 6.
Despite all the hard work, we will make sure that your last year at Primary school is action packed and full of fun.
Information about: homework, spellings, trips, important dates, photos and reports can all be found below.
A gentle reminder: printed copies of spellings will be handed out each week. If you lose your paper copy, spellings for the entire year are available to download at the bottom of this page.
We'll try and keep it as up-to-date as possible!

Graffiti Day(s) 2018
Year 6 enjoyed two fantastic days with Aaron, the graffiti artist. We learnt about his personal journey from illegal graffiti artist in trouble with the police to owning his own mural painting, graffiti workshop and clothing companies. Aaron, always stresses the importance of only doing graffiti legally – with the permission of the property owner. He is a talented artist and communicator and worked with the children to produce some amazing graffiti.
This year we began a process of renewing previously graffitied areas of the school. We are focussing on the school values of: hope, respect, friendship, forgiveness, honesty and perseverance. This year we painted two sides of the sheds with graffiti representing HOPE and RESPECT! We think they look amazing!
Olivia! – Script
Your homework for the next two weeks is to learn your lines for our end of year production, Olivia!
This year it is going to be really important that you know the words in advance of our rehearsals – this is because we have limited rehearsal time due to Swimming sessions on Tuesdays, Forest School on Wednesdays and the forthcoming Science Week!
So take your scripts home, practice your lines in front of the mirror, you could even get-together with friends to rehearse your parts!
See below for a PDF version of the script.

SATS are over!
I just wanted to say a massive 'thank you' to Year 6 for all your hard work in the run-up to this year's SATs exams. I hope you enjoyed your party.
Thanks to everyone who brought food in! Also, thanks to everyone who was a terrible shot with the wet sponge!
Year 6 Leavers' Hoodies 2018

Thank you to all the parents who had a go at the Grammar and Arithmetic SATs papers - you scores have been added to our SATs Totaliser and have helped to unlock an extra sports activity! It seems everyone found the Grammar paper harder than the Maths - don't worry I'm pretty sure most of that grammar didn't exist when we were at school! It seems like Channel 4 had a similar idea, if you were inspired by having a go at these SATs papers, watch The Class of Mum and Dad, which follows a group of parents as they go back to Year 6 to take their SATs exams!
Special congratulations to the the parent below who not only scored 40/40 but completed the test in just 15 minutes! If you would like to come into celebration assembly on Friday, you can collect a certificate!
Features of a river
We've been looking at the different features of a river, making the journey from source to mouth (with a few meanders along the way). We created some great 3D models and are now using our knowledge to write up explanation texts about rivers. Including research into a famous river. See below for a slide show of our models...
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you have all had a restful and enjoyable Christmas. This term we will be working really hard to get ready for the SATs at the end of Year 6. One thing we are really going to crack is our knowledge and application of Times Tables. Be prepared for 'Tables Points' being replaced by 'Times Tables Points' – don't worry there's still sweets as a prize at the end of the week!
Thank you to all children and their parents for the lovely Christmas gifts! You are all very kind. You'll see me out running through most of 2018 in order to burn off all the chocolate I've eaten over the Christmas holidays! I hope you've all had a wondeful Christmas.
New Term is the chance for some nice new displays! Here's our lovely new Science topic: Forces!
