Spring Lockdown 

At the moment, most of you will be completing home learning rather than coming into school. You can find everything you need on the Y6 Home Learning Page

It's been so great to see some of the fantastic Home Learning work that has been completed. I will update this page with some lovely examples along with a regular update on Dojo points. Remember, you can earn Dojos for attending Zoom lessons, handing in work and going that extra mile with your home learning! 

Home Learning

We have been reading Skellig by David Almond and creating our own spooky stories. Have a look at some of the great work done at home below. Also, there are some great examples below of Geography work and RE work. Keep it up Year 6!

 Classification Challenge

I set Y6 the challenge to create their own classification diagrams for animals and also anything they could find around their homes like sweets, chocolate or toys. Look at some of the great work that was sent in!

Questions for Reading with your Child



This term we are going on a Journey to the Galapagos Islands. We will be developing our geographical skills by looking at maps at different scales, identifying habitat zones including the animal and plant life that live there and investigating the impact climate change is having on this environment. We will also look at 'eco-tourism' and how this is helping people to visit the Galapagos environment in a sustainable way. In English we will be reading Skellig by David Almond. 


 Times Tables Games

Use the following links to assist with learning and practising your times tables. These are so important and will really help you with lots of different areas of maths!

Also, use your Purple Mash account to access more games like Monster Tables



Amazing Work

Have a look below for some of the amazing work we have been doing during Autumn Term. Year 6 have created some fantastic pieces which show great creativity and imagination. 

Cathedral Christmas Tree - December 2020

Year 6 have been very busy creating decorations for a tree at the Cathedral Christmas Tree Festival. Our tree is in collaboration with Christian Aid to celebrate the work they do to support those in need. Our decorations were hearts of love and lanterns to represent lights of hope. On Monday 14th December we visited the cathedral to see our tree and all the other creative designs.



Blackout Poetry- October 2020

Blackout Poetry is where you take a page of a book and carefully select words and phrases around a particular topic. You then blackout everything else to be left with a poem. We created some using a page of War Horse and our theme was No Man's Land. Have a look at the striking end results!



Design and Technology- Nov/Dec 2020

As part of our 'Shelters' project, we investigated how to join materials together to make a strong and sturdy frame for a shelter. We had materials such as lolly sticks, pipe cleaners, straws and modelling clay to use. Here are some of our creations. We also looked at which are the strongest shapes by creating structures using cocktail sticks and gumdrops. Our structures had to support a heavy book.
