Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 


"Is a Natural Disaster always a Disaster?"


This term we will be studying the different kinds of natural disasters that can occur and how they impact on the planet. We will be looking at volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes and flooding and historical and more recent events. We will be producing a news broadcast using our fabulous drama skills along with knowledge of ICT and chosen applications to produce a video. 


Below you will find an overview for the term with information regarding the focus for each subject as well as the key vocabulary we will be using this term. 


Spellings for the term are also posted below and the children will continue to be tested each Friday using the spellings we have logged in our Read Write Inc logbooks. 


Please do check our page regularly to see what we have been up to in Year 6.

Year 6 have worked hard this term with our visiting music teacher to learn songs from Oliver and The Pirates of Penzance. The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and made all of us proud with their efforts. 

Our My Style Homework

We have had some excellent examples of My Style homework this term and have proudly displayed them in our classroom. The examples included a model mine, a telephone that Alexander Graham Bell invented, a typewriter which was invented in 1878, an X ray machine and print examples inspired by William Morris.

Keeping Active 

Our Values

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Growth Mindset


This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset.  This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning.  Further information can be found by following the link below.
