Year 6 - Bolivia and Peru

Welcome to Year 6!

We, Mrs Jenner and Mr Dack, are delighted to be leading the year 6 team and are excited to be part of the children's learning experiences this year. We are always around to support both you as parents and the children, and if you need anything then don't hesitate to pop in and speak to one of us.

Please find on this page your child's spellings and topic webs for the year group as well as photo updates of their learning in school.


What The Zeus - The Movie!

The end of another year. In usual circumstances there would be a performance of some description, but alas it was not to be. What follows is the closest we could get to a performance - "What the Zeus!" A massive thank you to the children for all their hard work, the staff and you, the parents for your unwavering support through this challenging year. Thank you!


Term Six - What the Zeus!

Welcome to Term Six and a brand new topic - designed to entertain and inform! The home-learning each week will be organised in three sections: the first section is for those pupils who are working at home for all five days of the week (Homelearners), the next section is for those at school on Wednesdays and Thursdays (Pods 3 & 4), the final section is for those who are at school on Mondays and Tuesdays (Pods 1 & 2). It is really important that the work is completed!

We are delighted that so many pupils are now back in school with us and, from next week, that we will be in school for FOUR days! Much of the work this week will be based on the Year 6 play/performance. The play will include all children, including those who are working at home, details will be sent out on Monday 22nd June.

Well done! You have already made a great start to this term's work... (Josh, Max, Emma, Izaak) and thank you Lily for your China work!


Thanks for sending in all of your work, I'll putting more up soon. There won't be a video from me (Mr Dack) this week, because - quite honestly - you've got loads to be getting on with. I have added a video Daisy and her family created below ... I'd certainly watch the full movie! More like this would be fantastic!

Also, find below a video Emma's created demonstrating how to collage a beetle (fantastic Emma - keep it up!) Perhaps once all of the rest of the work is done, this might be an additional project you can all get to grips with.
