Year 6 News


Hello and welcome to Year 6.


Hello and welcome to Year 6.

This year each class has been named after a Welsh bird or animal. Our class name is Dosbarth Barcud, this means ‘Kite’ in Welsh.


The people who work in our class are:

Mr Allman

Miss Jones (now on maternity leave

Miss Heard (Tuesday afternoons)

Mrs Martin (Wednesday afternoons)


Our week in school and things to remember:

Friday – PE day; we suggest that the children keep their PE kits in school at all times though just in case (our swimming term will be in the summer term).

Wednesday- Drama. We will also be completing a “World of Work” module during the spring term.

Friday- Spelling books should be brought back ready to change each Friday.


What are we learning about this term?

Our topic this term will be Heart and Pulse. In literacy lessons we will be studying the novel “Pig Heart Boy” by Malorie Blackman. We will also be studying debates and writing persuasively around the topic of organ donation and smoking. We will be writing non-chronological reports about the Heart and during our advertising topic we will be designing and advertising our own fundraisers for the British Heart Foundation on March 16th.


Our topic is heavily science based; We will be investigating lung capacity and Heart Rate and studying the human body in detail.


Miss Heard will continue to teach the children Welsh and in maths we will be preparing for the upcoming tests in May.


New spelling lists will also be sent home on a Friday. We practise these daily in school too.

Homework- throughout the Key Stage 2 we all send home take-away homework; more information about this will be sent along with the first set of challenges at the end of the week.

Important dates this term

March 16th – BHF Fund raiser in school – All stalls to be designed and managed by Year 6 Pupils. Parents welcome to visit in the afternoon and support the class.
