Year 6 2023 -2024



Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to our final assembly today. It has been an amazing 7 years and the children really enjoyed sharing their memories with you. We have had an incredible time and I am very sad to see them go. Wishing you all a wonderful summer holiday!

Love, Miss W, Miss B and Mrs G x

Homework is due in by Wednesday each week.

Children will receive the following tasks: Maths, English and Spelling.

Additional tasks linked to our learning in subjects such as RE, Science and Topic will also be given.

There is an expectation that children will play on Times Table Rockstars for 5 minutes twice a week and also read a book/magazine for pleasure for 10 minutes each day so that they become fluent in their number facts and reading.

Year 6: it is your responsibility to make sure homework is completed and submitted on time.  Miss W :-)

Working in pairs, Year 6 explored the properties of circles. They used string and then a ruler to measure the circumference. We then looked at the patterns in our investigation to make some statements about the relationships between the diameter and circumference, and the radius and diameter. We really enjoyed our learning!

YEAR 6 enjoyed their pizza party to celebrate their hard work during SATs Week. Take a look at those action shots!


A huge well done and thank you to all of Year 6 who have been amazing this term in planning and organising the school's fundraising efforts. Through fun games and sales, Year 6 raised a staggering £483.02 for charity!   Absolutely awesome, Year 6!  


Year 6 learned about the causes of the Industrial Revolution.

They worked in groups to create freeze frames showing these causes. 


Year 6 enjoyed dissecting flowers as part of their Science topic. They tried their best to identify all the different parts. 

Please find below the Curriculum Overview for Summer term.



Year 6 led KS2 beautifully in the Way of the Cross during Holy Week. Working in pairs, they retold the Stations of the Cross and invited the children to reflect on how they can live out Jesus' message in the world today.

Easter Display

Year 6 really got into the Easter spirit with their fantastic creations for the Easter display. There were some incredible designs. Enjoy the photos!

Space Projects

Well done to Year 6 for their Earth and Space homework projects! The children were given a month to produce a product of their choice linked to our Science unit all about Space. Many created models, fact files and much more! We all enjoyed sharing them  and Mrs Allport (our Science Champion) was very impressed. Well done, Year 6!


Year 6 used the place value counters to solve a range of calculations. We had to be very careful with our exchanges.

As part of our History topic, we visited Cannock Chase World War II museum to find out what life was like in Britain during the Blitz and rationing. We had a great time and learned lots of interesting information, especially about the 'fake foods' that people invented. We even did a practice air raid, which was very exciting!

To celebrate the feast day of St Teresa, Year 6 took inspiration from our school motto by designing flower pots and planting flowers. Now that we have taken them home, the challenge is to nourish and nurture our plant so that it grows and blossoms, just as we do du our time in Year 6. 

'Little flowers growing and giving glory to God.'


Building the Kingdom Overnight Experience

Dignity of the Human Person

As part of our topic, learning about the dignity that each and every living thing deserves, Year 6 tried to imagine what life is like for those who are homeless. We stayed overnight at school and thought how these people are often treated by our communities and how it must feel to be in their shoes. 

In our lessons, we thought about ways that we can help those in need and how even something as small as a smile or a kind word can have a huge impact on those who often live 'unseen' by others.


Year 6 have enjoyed a range of WW2 poetry this half term. As a group, they had to choose one of the poems to perform. Take a look at their performances below!
