Year 6 Learning Examples


In PSHCE this half term, we have been looking at our network of people who are important to us, friendships, changing relationships and what to do in new social situations.  We have discussed each situation, and the students have applied their understanding to their own lives.

Our Environment

In Science the Year Sixes have been enjoying studying evolution and inheritance.  After learning about Wallace and Darwin, we went searching for specimens in our own environment!


The Year Sixes have been focusing on basketball skills in PE.  “Passing” was a key focus for our drills this week; that coupled with fast feet, and we almost forgot about the outside temperatures!


Clay Day was a hit in Autumn 2!  We created clay heads in the style of David Shillinglaw and then painted them. 


Year 6 were enthralled with the last lesson in their light unit. They looked at different coloured filters and saw what colour the new filters changed to. They filled in their own table of results and there were some surprises! Great prediction and interpreting results Year 6.  

Maths Challenge

Our Year 6 team won the Maths Challenge hosted by Coleridge Community College! Congratulations to all who took part. We are very proud of how well you worked together.


Hot seating a character in English allowed us to better understand their action together with various story elements. Tableaus (still poses) from the story “The Journey” by Francesca Sanna embeds some of the finer details, and allows us to include ideas in our own writing. 


We used a practical investigation to help comprehend and then demonstrate how light travels in a straight line. We have used our experiences with reflecting light to create periscopes and have “reflected” on the understood law related to it. 


Here we are showing our skills with manipulatives in maths.
