Class 6

Hello and welcome to Class 6!

My name is Miss Watkinson and Mr Hurst and Miss Tomlinson are your teaching assistants.


This year will bring lots of new experiences and excitement in your final year of primary school!

As a big part of being in Year 6 is the completion of SATs in May, each child will be provided with a KS2 SATs Buster booklet (one for maths, one for grammar and punctuation and one for reading). Children will be given an expected number of pages to complete in a week. Please encourage them to do these; they will help children consolidate their learning and home and identify any areas where further support is needed!

Spellings will be given out each Monday and your spelling test will be on the following Monday. Please practice these as much as possible!


Home Reading
Please bring your book bag into school each day; however, books are only changed on Thursday. Please make sure these are signed or they will not be changed.



Our PE lessons are every Monday and Friday but please ensure you have your PE kit in each day in case of need.



If you have any questions regarding the curriculum your child is being taught, please contact school.


Have you seen the Kids’ Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.


At Our Lady’s we are always pleased to meet our parents, I will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45 and after school. If you would like me to ring you please leave a message at the school office.

Today, Year 6 invited the Year 5 children into their classroom to tell them all about Wassily Kandinsky and Benjamin Britten, who they have been learning about in Art and Music. This half term, Year 6 have created their own abstract art work which was inspired by the opera, 'Peter Grimes' written in 1945 by Benjamin Britten!

This afternoon, Year 6 celebrated the end of their topic - Light - by performing a series of dances with themes of the stars, the sun, fire and electricity and then followed this by performing a series of light tricks to the Reception class. What a lovely afternoon!

This half term, Year 6 have been busy learning about Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution and natural selection. We investigated how different 'beaks' are only able to eat specific types of food, just like the finches on the Galapagos islands which Charles Darwin based his theory upon!

Year 6 had a wonderful assembly and prayer service today with the theme of 'unconditional love'. They each told us that they are loved unconditionally by their families and God and love them very much!
