Year 6Helen Hutchinson and Rebecca Titterton
Welcome to the wonderful world of Year 6
Welcome to Year 6 and what an exciting and memorable year we have in store! You will already find us carrying out our roles of responsibility within KS2 with great care and dedication! (Scroll down our page to see our roles and responsibilities this term!).
This term, we are greatly enjoying the story of ‘Robinson Crusoe’ within English lessons. Listen to our character descriptions below and be wowed by our use of figurative language and imagery to establish a viewpoint! In Maths, we are focusing upon mental and written calculations for all four operations and applying our mathematical knowledge to respond to reasoning and problem solving questions.
Our creative curriculum topic for this term and next is ‘Kings and Queens: The British Monarchy. From the Tudor reign to our current Queen Elizabeth II, we will investigate the royal families, who ruled England and the impact they had! In science, we are learning about Electricity and we are certainly enjoying this ‘electrifying’ topic!

New gymnastics club for KS2
Here’s the Autumn 1 Newsletter – the children will be bringing a copy home on Monday! Our printers have had a technical glitch which the technicians are busy resolving.
We have acquired two new dance teachers from the ‘Body Rockers Dance School’ to teach the latest dance moves and routines!
Our karate instructor, has a few spaces available for new students wishing to start karate lessons.
As the newly appointed headteacher, I feel very excited about the possibilities for the school as we look to build on recent successes and develop and expand the opportunities for all children in our care.
There are a couple of things I’d like to share with you as we start the final two weeks of our school year.
