Welcome to Year 6

Where we believe in nurturing curious minds and fostering a passion for learning! The adults in our class are

  • Miss Salazar
  • Mrs Akthar-Choudhury

Our dedicated team is committed to providing a supportive and stimulating environment that empowers students to reach their full potential.

Our topic this term:

This term, we will be exploring about the Amazon – one of the world’s most fascinating and diverse ecosystems. Year 6 will discover the vast rainforest’s rich biodiversity, including unique plants and animals, and understand its critical role in regulating the Earth’s climate. Through engaging activities and projects, students will learn about the indigenous peoples of the Amazon and how they live in harmony with the forest. This topic will not only enhance their knowledge in geography and science, but also foster an appreciation for environmental conservation and global interconnections.

See what we’ve been up to:

  • To go along with our portal narrative, we went around the different areas in school and used our creativity and imagination and entered different worlds. The ecology garden took us to a forest! The hall took us to a world where we weren’t allowed to walk or run! Challenges came along the way! It was up to us to decide how to find a resolution to the problems we faced!
  • An amazing opportunity with Zoonation has come to Year 6 this term! We are so lucky to be able to work in partnership with them for our leaver’s assembly! We are using the book ‘Life doesn’t frighten me at all’ by Maya Angelou as inspiration!
  • Year 6 planted herbs to be ready for the next week weeks! As part of our final few weeks, we wanted to make sure that we can still immerse ourselves in all of the
  • gardening workshops! We are still waiting for our sunflowers to grow so we can put them through to the sunflower growing competition! We were also very lucky to be able to try redcurrants that have been growing in the school garden!
  • This week, we have been learning about what it means to be an ‘entrepreneur’ and looking at terminology such as ‘cost effective management’. We are using all of our maths skills to make comparisons between costs, offers and looking at bulk orders for a potential leaver’s gift at the end of the year!

Star of the week

Rudayna has really impressed all of us with her enthusiasm and her ability to respond with wonderment and awe during our workshops! She is a great model to her peers! Well done superstar!
