Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Y6 – the final chapter of primary school – a year of exciting opportunities, experiences that will be both rewarding and challenging, and an opportunity for everyone to shine. From sports to circuit building, coding to Clumber park, Shakespeare to Stone Age, there is something for everyone in Year 6.
As well as supporting children to reach their academic potential, there are plenty of opportunities to participate in key roles and responsibilities within school to equip children for their transition to secondary school. In Year 6, children will be expected to work hard, but in return, they will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take onto their next adventure.

The Year 6 children have been showing their creative side this week, continuing their work on short stories. We have turned our classroom's into a writer's room (particularly in Mrs Irwin's classroom) to help the children focus on their narratives. Look at the pictures below...the children have shown real focus in this atmosphere.
Mrs Lee's class have also started their watercolour backgrounds for their final piece on portraits this term.
Year 6 have started their English unit on short stories. The children are going to be immersed in different situations to help bring their stories to life.
Mrs Francis' class were camping this week (under their desks) to help imagine a setting. Next week, Year 6 will be taking a chilly trip down the school field; the following week we are visiting Clumber park to help describe their woodland settings.
Investigating circuits in Y6: All the Year 6 classes have been working collaboratively to investigate circuits. Mrs Irwin’s class investigated if including additional clips in their circuit (47 to be precise) had an impact on the brightness of the bulb. In Mrs Lee’s class they added additional components and investigated the brightness of the bulbs in relation to the position of the batteries. Mrs Francis’ class were challenged to create a circuit where it was possible to remove a component without all the bulbs going out.
