To our amazing Year 6s,

As you may be aware, our school is going to be closed for a little bit longer. We have worked together to create some home learning tasks for you to complete. We want to thank you for taking this new way of learning with positivity and enthusiasm – it is very admirable. We cannot begin to tell you how much we are missing you all however, you being at home and safe is the most important thing right now.

From Miss Howes and Miss Little


Celebration of Year 6's Home Learning

Teacher Appreciation Day

Thank you for all of your kind and thoughtful messages Year 6 - you certainly know how to make us smile! You play the biggest part in making teaching fantastic, so here is an even bigger thank you from us too :)




Reading Quest!

Christian has undertaken a quest to find a Shakespeare play that does not include love or murder.  Following an extensive search, he concluded that all of Shakespeare's plays include either love or murder and sometimes both!  A fab piece of research to complete Christian - well done!

The Arrival at Home!

Charlie has gone above and beyond with his home learning; he regularly uploads a variety of completed work and should be proud of his efforts. Here is an example of Charlie's playscript supported with shadow puppets that link to our Science topic! Well done, Charlie!


Ruby has been busy writing a letter in role as part of our class book, The Arrival. The content she has included is fantastic! Keep up the great work, Ruby!


Alex has been busy making shadow puppets of the characters from ‘The Arrival’.

Migration Projects

Martha has worked incredibly hard on her leaflet about migration.  She has researched the topic thoroughly alongside developing her existing ICT skills to create this professional-looking leaflet; well done Martha!

Olivia has conducted thorough research on animal migration linked to our 'Arrival' topic. She has included excellent points and presented her work in a clear and easy to read format. Well done, Olivia!

Artists at Heart

Mrs Wild set the Year 6 children a zentangle challenge which they have been responding to.  The artwork produced has been fantastic - well don everyone!
