Welcome to Year 6
Our teacher is Mrs Proctor and our teaching assistants are Mrs Senior (HLTA) and Mrs Walker (HLTA). Mrs Barsby, Mrs Wray and Mrs Moore will also be working with us this year.
We have a really exciting year planned for Year 6. We will be focusing on some great topics over the course of the year and this page will give you some information about the themes. Look out for the topic leaflet that the children will bring home at the start of each term to tell you all about the learning that we'll be doing.
Autumn Term 1 - Blood Heart
Autumn Term 2 - Frozen Kingdom
Spring Term 1 and 2 - A Child's War
Summer Term 1 and 2 - Darwin's Delights
We encourage the children to remember to read as often as they can and have their planners signed to earn reading rewards.
A Homework Menu will be sent home at the start of each new topic. We ask that the children have a go of at least one of the activities across the term and bring it into school as soon as it is completed. There will also be other core curriculum tasks set on a weekly basis, where appropriate, to support current learning.

Year 6 Visit to Crucial Crew by Alex B
As you might have been aware, Crucial Crew took place on 11th March 2019 and it was a blast!
As we walked into the building we were seated in the police classroom we were greeted by some members of staff from Crucial Crew who landed us into a real life set
All of the sets were made to be put in a scenario where we would learn how things like court worked. We also got to see what a real cell would look like which was designed by real prisoners and we saw a crime fighting service called SmartWater which is a service that detects the connection between crime and you.
