Welcome to Year 6 Class
Year 6 Class
In Year 6, we are taught by Mrs Kelly and we are supported by Mrs Room and Mrs Allen. Mrs Room also teaches us when Mrs Kelly is completing her planning and preparation.
In Year 6, we follow the the school ethos 'Christ at the Heart of All We Do' .
Here are a few pieces of useful information:
Your child will have a reading book and reading record and it’s really important that they are encouraged to read at home as often as possible. Some children in Year 6 are no longer reading books from the school reading scheme and they have been given a book of their choice from the class library. We want to instil in all our children a love of reading, so it is perfectly fine if they choose to read at home something they particularly like rather than their school reading book. If your child chooses to do this, could the title of the book be recorded in their reading record – thank you.
Like last year, the children will be following the school spelling scheme throughout Year 6. Your child should bring home their spelling folder on Monday and complete the homework activity each evening. They will be tested each Friday in school.
PE in the Summer term will be on Thursday and Friday. Please ensure your child has their full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times.
All children are encouraged to bring into school a snack of fresh fruit or vegetables which can be eaten at break time. Could we please remind you that this is fresh fruit and veg only.
It’s important that your child remains hydrated during the day. Please ensure your child has a reusable water bottle in school each day clearly labelled with their name and containing water only. Your child should bring this home each evening so the bottle can be cleaned and refilled.
Just a polite reminder that rucksacks and very large bags are not allowed in school. We simply do not have the room to accommodate them.
If you need to speak to me, please arrange this through the school office and I will contact you as soon as possible.
Please find links below to all our learning letters for the academic year 2021-2022. These contain important information on topics we are covering in class and PE days. They also include details on learning challenges for your child to complete at home.

World Book Day in Year 6
Year 6 have been very busy over the past five days. They led a special assembly on Monday to mark Odd Socks Day, and continued throughout the rest of the week with activities based on Anti-Bullying Week. The children also enjoyed taking part in Times-tables Rock Stars Day on Wednesday, and Children in Need on Friday. As well as all this , Year 6 did some fantastic work in their PE sessions with a gymnastics coach from Burnley Gymnastics.

Learning in RE Autumn term
In RE this half term we have focused on the meaning of unconditional love and how God's love is unconditional and never-ending. Linked to this, we have looked at the importance of forgiveness as an essential part of unconditional love.
Here is some of our work:
Art and Design Spring 2023
For this topic we studied the work of Paula Wiegmink, " a passionate wildlife artist dedicated to drawing attention not only to endangered species but to all the incredible wildlife that we share our planet with".
We explored many art mediums throughout the unit assessing and evaluating our work as we went on. We were thrilled to bits with out finished pieces of work. More can be found on the Art and Design page - click here.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Lancashire War Museum on Monday, where threy took part in various activities. They acted as air reconnaissance staff by studying a selection of aerial photographs of the Danish coast, to work out the possibility of the sighting of the Bismarck ship. Also, they were interviewed to see if they would have made good spies during the war. Finally, they were given a lesson in the use of Morse Code and top secret information for Operation Overload - the Battle of Normandy.
Here are a selection of photographs.
