Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to the Year 6 page. Here, you can find information about the Year 6 curriculum and upcoming events, but don't forget to check ClassDojo for information on behaviour, letters as well as more frequent updates from us.


In November, we will have our Year 6 residential visit to Condover Hall in Shropshire. This is from Wednesday 9th to Friday 11th November. Please speak to or message Mr Hyde if you have any questions. All places should have been booked earlier in Year 5.



This term, our focus in the curriculum will be our value of Unity, alongside our global goal of Peace & Conflict. We shall be learning about rainforests in Geography, focusing on their importance to our world, as well as the damaging consequences of deforestation. This will culminate in a formal debate later in the term. In Science, we will be furthering our understanding of the classification of living things, learning about the different levels of taxonomy and the findings of the scientist Carl Linneaus.


We expect the children to be accessing Reading Plus on a regular basis, as well as using other online platforms such as Times Tables Rockstars and Sumdog. If you require login details, please contact Miss Hennessy or Mr Hyde.


Secondary school applications should be made on the Derbyshire website by Monday 31st October. Places at all schools in the local area at a premium so we strongly encourage families to apply to ensure they get the school of their choice. Families will be notified of places on Wednesday 1st March.
