Welcome to Year 6 

Thank you for supporting the Year 6 children with their plant sale - everything was eventually sold! 

Homework 9.6.17

Trapped in Year 6

You're trapped in Year 6. Can you solve these puzzles and find answers to help you escape from the dungeon (classroom)! Good luck!

Summer Term

As the weather gets warmer, please can all children ensure that they bring a water bottle to school, a hat (if needed) and some suncream!


A polite reminder that all children must have a full PE kit.  This should include a plain white t-shirt and dark shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms.  PE is twice a week: Monday's with Mr B & Ms L and Thursday's with Mr Simms.  As long as the weather is nice, we'll generally be outside in the summer term.

Religious Education

Our unit of work this term focuses on what religions say when life is hard from the point of view of Christians, Hindus and Muslims.

We shall also be thinking about and discussing our own views on some of life's ultimate questions - in particular 'what happens when we die.'  The children are encouraged to be respectful of other children's views and opinions whilst challenging children to think about what these questions mean to them.  

If you have any questions about this unit, or wish to discuss anything further, please contact Ms Lees.

The Year 6 Toolkit can be printed here.
