Year 6 2018 - 2019

Mrs Barry

Autumn Term 2018



This term’s topic in year 6 is ‘Survival.’ We will be writing our own survival/adventure stories in English and in Science we are learning about how plants and animals have adapted/evolved in order to survive in different environments. We will be working hard to improve many areas of maths, particularly the speed of our mental calculations. In PE we are learning to play netball with Mrs Barry and cricket with an ex-international cricketer!



Summer Term


Wow, Summer Term already! Our last term together has arrived and although SATs are imminent, there are exciting things happening, enabling you to make memories that will last a life- we are very excited to be a part of that. A massive good luck to all of you in your exams, we are super proud of you all. Our topic for the following Term, as summer approaches, will be ‘I do like to be beside the seaside’. This will include links to Geography where we will explore the physical and human aspects of Blackpool alongside the history of the seaside resort. We have a fun term ahead which is well deserved!


Spring Term



Welcome back to year 6! Happy 2018-we hope you had a fabulous break. This term we start our SATs revision in earnest. There will be extra booster sessions and after school groups-all designed to help the children sail through the tests. The parent partnership letter that your child will receive goes into more detail but if you have any questions, please come and see a member of the year 6 team. There will still be art, P.E, R.E and topic work, so plenty of fun will still be available-WORK HARD-PLAY HARD is our motto! Don’t forget Min Y Don too-the highlight of the year!


We are so very excited to spend the last year of primary school with you. We are already enjoying teaching you and are looking forward to the rest of a very fast-moving year. Hopefully you all had a great summer break; you have certainly come back with a wonderful attitude. Please keep your eyes open for different high schools’ open evenings-they start from September and they are ALL worth a visit so that you are happy with your choices when the application time comes.

Our topic is SURVIVAL-one of my favourites. We cover most subjects through this including: English, Geography,Science,Art and D.T.

Our specialist P.E teacher will be teaching us on Thursdays-the area being cricket. I will also be teaching P.E on a Monday, so you should always have your kit in.

R.E looks at ‘Life as a journey’ and it will allow us to think about our lives so far and maybe where we would like our journey to go.

If you have any questions about year 6, please ask Miss Barber or Mrs Mawdsley; they will always be happy to help. Here’s to a great year!

Miss Barber and Mrs Mawdsley
