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.


Below we have included some information about our class and how we work. We are holding a drop in session on Thursday 14th September between 3:15pm- 4:15pm where we will be available to answer any of your questions.


The people who work in our class are:

Mr Allman

Miss Jones

Miss Heard (Monday afternoons)

Mrs Martin (Thursday afternoons)


Our week in school and things to remember:

Tuesday – 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- Forest School; again we suggest that the children keep their kits in school

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 WWII. Through our literacy lessons we will be writing and reciting our own speeches based on Winston Churchill’s famous WWII speech. We will be studying Newspaper reports from the WWII period and writing our own reports during the outbreak of the war. We will also be writing a narrative based on “Goodnight Mr Tom”. Throughout the topic we will also be covering many skills from the other subjects in the Year 6 curriculum particularly history, geography, art and ICT.

Our numeracy lessons will have a different focus each week and will cover all aspects and skills of the mathematics curriculum. Mrs Martin will teach the children music and PSHE.

Learning at home

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.
