Believe and Achieve

Year 6

If you believe in yourself, you will achieve incredible things!

In Year 6 our teacher is Miss Henry and our fantastic teaching assistant is Miss Waters. In Class 6, we know that it is OK to make mistakes, as this is how we learn and find out new things. Miss Henry and Miss Waters believe in each and every one of us and are always encouraging us to be the best that we can be!

As well as working extremely hard in all that we do, we have lots of fun in our lessons! This year we are really excited to have even more fantastic experiences. We are looking forward to more exciting Science experiments, lots of outdoor learning opportunities to inspire our writing and preparing for our move to secondary school!

How your child is learning at home is very important to me. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the School, and I can help you as best I can!
Miss Henry 🙂

Topic News

Current Topic: What is one of the most dangerous ways that humans are killing our planet?

We have been learning all about the Amazon Rainforest and the many benefits it brings to our planet.

Our topic has taught us lots about South America, using a map and understanding the terminology used when reading maps and the impact deforestation has on our planet.

Recently, we went out into our woodland and lived as though we were members of an Amazon tribe. We learnt lots about how people living in a tribe get their food, build a community, use plants for medicines, create clothing, create weapons for protection as well as food sources!

We are currently working on our extended write, which is a letter to Jair Bolsonaro persuading him to do more to protect the Amazon Rainforest!

Virtual Learning

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, should our bubble need to close, remote learning will be provided for your child via Google Classroom. The children have all been shown how to navigate this resource. Children also have 'Home Learning' books, which they will bring home to work in.

Please click here to view the expectations of Year 6 pupils during remote learning periods.
You can also access our Home Learning Timetable by clicking here.

Here are some links to some key learning websites which your children should access during remote learning periods:
