Year 5 & 6

Welcome back to your final year in primary education for our Year 6 pupils! This is the part of the website dedicated to YOU -  our wonderful new Year 5/6 pupils; it is here to support you (and your parents and carers) with your learning. We are really excited to meet you all and we have lots of fun activities ready for you! 


Year 6 - History: War


Our first topic is all about blood. Children learn what is in blood and how it carries oxygen, water, nutrients and waste products around the body. We will observe ‘blood’ flowing through tubes to see how the diameter of the tubes affects flow rate. They relate this to the flow of blood through real blood vessels and plan their own second investigation about circulatory system health.

What's in blood?


Our topic this term is Pharoah. Let’s travel back 5000 years, to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods and unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and artefacts. If you want to have a sneak peek at what we will be covering, click on the knowledge organiser below. If you or anyone you know has any interesting information about Ancient Egypt, we would love to hear about it.



PE will be on a Monday and Wednesday each week. Children can come into school in their PE kit on PE days.

Strength & Conditioning for Basketball, Volleyball, Netball & Olympic  Handball Diploma

The first half term we will be developing our skills in Football and Netball.

Our priority is your child's happiness and well-being. Parents and carers, if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please don't hesitate to contact the class teacher.

Mrs Bagdonavicius, Mrs Dickinson and Mrs Burrows.
