Year 6

Welcome to Year 6


The Year 6 class teacher is Mrs Taylor and Mrs Garrett is the class TA. 

We are also joined by Ms Channon who teaches Science and Spanish and Miss Page who teaches music.


Homework is given out every Thursday and is expected to be back in by the following Tuesday. There will be at least two tasks and these are to be completed in the Homework Log.  Occasionally, children will be given extra homework as and when is required to support their learning in class.


Alongside the weekly homework, there is an expectation that children read outside of school at least 4 times a week.   Individual spelling lists are updated and tested every Monday and the Literacy Unit spelling test happens every 3 weeks (see Homework Logs for details).


In year 6, we expect children to take responsibility for their home learning, take pride in it and know what they need to do to support themselves in class.


We have PE on a Tuesday and Wednesday, please ensure that PE kit is in school on these days and that it is clearly labelled with their name.

Music share March 2018

Thank you to all who came to see us performing 'Songbird' by Oasis.  We have been learning how to play chords on the ukulele and keyboard using the 'Just Play' resources from Musical Futures. The whole ethos of this programme is to play instruments for the whole of the session as the name suggests.  We even got our visitors to have a go too!

Well done we were very impressed with your playing. You can join our band!

January 2018


Our paintings of the Blitz above London are complete and on display!


Here are a few samples of them.

Spanish - January 2018

On 11th January Matthew Keirman, Francesca's brother came in to visit us. He is studying GCSE German at Torquay Boys' Grammar School and used to come to this school. He loves learning German and showed us photos of his visit to Germany and Austria last year.  He taught us some German and we played some games. 

We thought it was 'Sehr Gut und Wunderbar!' (Very good and wonderful!)



We are currently exploring a range of Art skills in Year 6.  Our focus is paint and our final compositions will be images of the Blitz over London during WWII.


Before we produce our final work, we have been busy exploring tints and shades of colour suitable to represent fire alongside practising the skills of mixing and blending.

World War Two share December 2017

Thank you to all who came to see our World War Two work.  We shared our song Evacuate! Evacuate! singing in two parts, our C Jam blues improvisations using the glockenspiels and chimebars and our evacuation recounts.

It has been a busy first half of the autumn term.


A huge thank you to all of you that attended our geography and literacy share on Thursday 19th  October. The children really enjoyed sharing their learning. Below are a few photographs from the afternoon.


Year 6 also enjoyed an interesting, informative and fun trip to Cockington Country Park. The focus was on their science project of Living Things and their Habitats. The children enjoyed pond dipping and mini beasting to learn about invertebrates in their natural environment.

A quick reminder that homework is given on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday.


We have continued to build upon our Spanish knowledge this term and have been learning about places in my town.  We have also been debating the situation in Catalonia in Spain and we will wait to see what happens after the referendum on December 21st. The last two weeks of this term have been spent learning about Christmas traditions in Spain.
