Hello Year 6!


We hope that you are all keeping safe and are doing well.


In the second half of summer term, we always begin working with our Y6s on their transition to secondary school. This is an interesting time because you all might be feeling very differently about this change. The way you are feeling might be very different to the way your best friend is feeling. 


Over the next few weeks, some of the work you will be set will be all about your transition to secondary school. The tasks will include looking at example timetables, considering how to make new friends and what to do if you feel worried. Please look at your 2dos on Purple Mash and have a look at the PowerPoint below. They will be very useful in helping you to understand what to expect at your new school.


As always, if you have any questions about it, give either of us a note on the class blog and we will get in contact with you for a chat. 

We miss you all lots!

Mrs Wallis and Miss Smedley

This is what Year 6s have been working on…

We worked on a project for 2 weeks in the Autumn Term. We are all so thrilled for the new playground! First, we started by asking all of the other KS2 kids if they like active or quiet playtimes.

After we had asked them all their opinions, we started to design the playground in groups…

We all decided which one was most popular and then voted down to the last two. The final two groups and designs went to the governors. We decided to combine both designs together to make the ONE to go on the playground.

This week, the builders started working on site to make the plan a reality!
