Year 6


Welcome to Year 6 at Werrington Primary School. 

We have a lot of exciting things planned for this year!  In the Autumn Term, we have local trips to Kings Dyke Nature Reserve to search for fossils and to Wypemere Farm to learn about local food production.  In the Spring Term, our writing will be based on the topics of Titanic and Romeo and Juliet and in the Summer Term our school production and residential to Scarborough will be our highlights!

Our topics this year include:  The Ancients (Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and The Mayans); North America; Living Things, Evolution and Classification; Electricity; Light; The Heart and Buddhism.  

If you have any way of supporting your child at home with these topics, it would be much appreciated.

We are all here to help you! 


This Week's News

April/May 2018

What a great start to the Summer Term! The children have come back feeling refreshed and excited and are working their socks off! 

With SATs just round the corner, children are building confidence in all areas of grammar, maths and English, ready for the tests in May.

The Marathon Challenge has got off to a great start with many miles already having been completed. 

Lots of children are involved in our May Day celebrations and we hope to see you there - hopefully in the sunshine!












Well, what a busy couple of weeks we have had! 

All the children are working really hard to promote their games for the upcoming Christmas Fair - they're sounding fantastic!

We are looking forward to the singing concert next week at Ken Stimpson too!



It was lovely to see the children so respectful and thinking about all those who have fought in wars this morning when we went to the church. They read their poems with pride and all who attended were very impressed.

There are two important letters coming home today. One about our residential to Scarborough! We have spoken to the children a little about Scarborough, and filled them in on some of the details. It is such a fantastic residential (my favourite - Miss Chase) and the children get to do so many brilliant acitivies. It is also a wonderful way to round off year 6.

The second is homework. This is to create a game for our Christmas Fair which is on the 1st December. All details are on the homework sheet but if you are unsure, please let us know!



What a fantastic start back after half term! We have been thinking about Remembrance day this week and the children have created fantastic poems to read at the service next Friday.

They have also sewn some beautiful poppies which they will all be able to wear from tomorrow!

Next week we are looking more at North America, a video clip to inspire writing and thinking about area and perimeter of different shapes.

Don't forget homework, both paper and on abacus!!



Well done to all of year 6 for their concentration and hard work whilst having a go at some SATs papers this week! 

We also had a fab time watching the Titanic last night, with only 20minutes left to watch!

Next week is art week and we are basing all of our work around 'Heroic Mind' by John Ashton Golden.



Another exciting week thinking more about the Titanic. We have looked this week at who we believe to be to blame for the sinking of the Titanic. 

In maths we have been concentrating on fractions and this will continue into next week.

Don't forget next week is Titanic movie night if you are coming, please make sure the children are picked up at 6pm from the KS1 playground. 



We have learnt a lot this week about the items that were found on the Titanic. 

Thank you to all those who attended the Impact For Learning Workshop! Homework will come home today linked to the folders you took home. If you didn't make it, your child will bring their folder home tonight. 

Next week we are looking in to who might have been to blame for the sinking of the Titanic and all things fractions in maths! 



This week we are learning more about the passengers that were on the Titanic.

We are also looking at our multiplication skills in maths, so get thinking about those times tables!

Please ensure you have returned your Impact For Learning writing letter this week, it's going to be a fantastic workshop and lots of great writing can then be generated at home!

We've got a busy week ahead!
