Year 6

Very well done to our two beautiful Emilys who have been awarded this week’s Headteacher’s Award for being such caring and considerate pupils. They are a credit to Year 6 and wonderful role models to the rest of the school.

16th September 2020




Please see a letter to parents below inviting you to attend a virtual parents evening on Tuesday 29th September 2020.


Thank you



The Headteacher award for this week has been given to two pupils who have settled back into the school routine really well.


Welcome to Year 6 2020-2021

  • Spelling lists will be given to the children on a Monday to take home and learn. Books need to be returned to class on a Friday for a spelling test.
  • Reading books will be changed when requested by the pupil. We would expect the reading book to be changed on a regular basis as reading for pleasure is greatly encouraged to enhance and support the child's learning.
  • PE will take place outdoor only for the time being due to the Covid 19 restrictions in place. The children will have PE on Tuesday and Friday and will therefore require an outdoor PE kit consisting of trainers and a suitable tracksuit for outdoor Winter weather conditions.
  • We are very excited to begin a new History based topic this term entitled, 'Do our choices really matter? Journeys, Conflict and Equality: Britain 1901-1918'.

       Within this topic we will be studying three areas of history;

  • The Titanic
  •  The First War
  • The Suffragettes

      Within this topic and as part of our Reciprocal Reading class text, we will be reading            'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo. The texts we will be using in English include 'The            Titanic Detective Agency' and 'Voices from the Past. Survivors of the Titanic.'

  • Topic based home learning activities will be set each half term. Pupils have the half term to complete one of the topic based home learning tasks.
  • Maths homework will be given on a weekly basis. Pupils will receive the homework on a Wednesday and will be given until the following Wednesday to complete it.
  • The learning of times tables is an ongoing home learning task.

Welcome to Year 6, 2019

19.09.2019                     Buddies          


We enjoyed meeting our Buddies for the first time. We played together in their playground and chatted about the things they liked to do. It was a great afternoon!


20.09.2019   Dexter and Winter's Detective Agency


We were invited by CAST, Doncaster, to watch the production of Dexter and Winter's Detective Agency by Nathan Bryon.  The play was part of Roundabout (Thursday 19th - Sunday 22nd September), a four day pop-up festival of music, new writing, comedy and more!

23.09.2019                        We Can Grow


As part of 'We Can Grow', Year 6 planted Pak Choi. We can't wait to see it grow and taste it!

UCI 2019 Road World Championships


Year 6 and Year 4 were invited to watch the start of the Junior Women's Race which started at the Doncaster Dome.

It was an early start, having to meet up at the Dome at 7.00 am, but it was well worth it.  We had a front row view of the start of the Race as well as seeing all the riders beforehand when they were registering.





Darwin's Delights


We enjoyed a brilliant day at Austerfield Study Centre learning all about evolution and adaptation.




We particularly loved holding the exotic animals and looking at how they have adapted to their habitat.

The Sacrament of Holy Orders


Thursday 6 November 2019

Fr. Darren talked to us about his Ordination and how he became a priest.  We enjoyed hearing all about his ‘journey’ to the priesthood.  The priesthood is one of the three holy orders of the Catholic Church, comprising ordained priests or presbyters. The other two orders are the bishops and the deacons.


Our Remembrance Assembly

        We Will Remember Them


13 November 2019



James Sunderland came into School to talk to us about Judaism, particularly the festivals of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.



We all tried the food for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah 'Sweet New Year'

We tried on the Kippur (Skull Cap).  

In the Jewish faith the head has to be covered for prayer.

We learnt about the Shofar, the ram's horn.  It was surprisingly light.



As part of our topic on Natural Disasters and as part of our English work, we have written our own stories based on the picture book Flood by Alvaro F Villa.


We shared our finished stories with our Reception class buddies.  They loved discussing the pictures and listening to the Year 6 pupil's stories.

Diversity Week


We enjoyed a Diverse World workshop with Richard.

We focused on extreme habitats around the world and the diversity within these habitats.

The pupils enjoyed lots of drama activities.

Crucial Crew


Wednesday 11th March saw us visit Crucial Crew in Rotherham for a day of learning all about how to keep ourselves and those around us safe.  Members of South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire Brigade, St Johns Ambulance Service, Yorkshire Transport and the Magistrates Service were all there to guide us and give us their expert knowledge on various safety issues.
