Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Our class teacher is Miss Baines and our teaching assistant is Mrs Marsh. 

Our topic for this term is Beside the Seaside. We will be learning about holidays and leisure throughout history with a particular focus on the Victorians.

Our English unit is based all around the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio where we will be doing lots of different writing based on this wonderful story.

Please click on our topic letter and medium term planning for the Summer term to find out more. 

We will update our page regularly with information and photos so please keep checking back to find out what we have been up to. 

Guess Zoo!


Guess Zoo!

In Science we have been learning about classification and today the children played a game of Guess Zoo. They had to choose an animal card and show it to the rest of their group without looking at it themselves. They then had to ask Yes and No questions to work out firstly what group their animal belonged to - mammals, fish, birds, reptiles or amphibians - and then try to guess which animal they had chosen. 

Balloon Powered Cars 15th March 2019


After learning about Sir Isaac Newton and his work on forces, Year 6 had a go at making their own balloon-powered cars. Using bottles, milk caps, straws, balloons, bamboo skewers, sellotape and scissors, they crafted their vehicle and then tested it.

None of the vehicles worked initially so then each group had to decide on a variable to change and test again. If this didn’t work, they had to alter another variable whilst all the time making sure that all the other variables stayed the same.

Gymnastics 1st March 2019

This half term we are having a sports coach from West Lancashire Sports Partnership deliver Gymnastics. 

In our first session today, the children worked in pairs and groups to perform different balances.
