This year, Mrs. Coxon and Mrs. Robson will all be working with Year 6. Look out for examples of the impressive work carried out in Year 6 across the curriculum.

You will also find links to any websites we find useful in our learning.

We hope you enjoy looking at our class page.


Reading books will be brought to school daily  and we would be grateful if you could read with your child each evening.
Spellings will be sent out weekly and will be linked to your child’s group work.
Homework: Children will be  expected to complete  Mathletics, and spellings homework , as well as daily reading practice. 
Homework  will still need to be brought to school every Friday.
It would be helpful if PE kits were left in school all week.

After watching various video clips about single-use plastic pollution, we did own own further research in preparation for writing a balanced argument with the heading 'Should single-use plastic be banned?' Then, we split up into two teams to formally debate the issue. It was a tense, well-executed debate, with the for side winning by just two votes. In Year 6 we can now agree that yes- single-use plastic should be banned.

To mark this year's Remembrance Day, 100 years since the end of World War One, we read the poem 'In Flanders Fields'. We analysed the poem in detail, looking in particular at imagery. We used this poem as a stimulus to write our own versions, creating our own imagery. Below are some examples of our writing. I'm sure you'll agree that their poems are absolutely beautiful and poignant...

Autumn Term - The First World War

To link to our WWI topic we have been reading Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo

Please click the link to read our Autumn newsletter. 

We visited Green Howards Museum as part of our History topic on WW1 and the children had a wonderful day.


Brandon said, 'It was an amazing experience and I would definitely do it again. My favourite part was the medal room and learning why people earned their Victoria Cross.'


'I was gobsmacked to learn that you had to breathe through a handkerchief covered in wee when gas came towards you to avoid death!' exclaimed Georgia.


Ella thought that the best part of the day was dressing up in uniforms and learning that the clothes were often covered in lice. 

As part of our Mini Police duties we attended riot training. We had the best day ever! 


We are taking part in the Junior Ed programme which is lead by Durham Constabulary. Pupils are learning a variety of skills and gaining knowledge,through different workshops delivered by different organisations.
