Welcome to Year 6 – 6LM


Welcome to 2019! Lots of exciting things planned for this year.


We are a class of 27 children who are taught by Mrs Lynch and Mrs McClue.  Mrs Lynch will Monday through to Wednesday and Mrs McClue will teach Wednesday through to Friday.


Important information:

  • Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.  Tuesday will be outside and Wednesday will be indoors.  Please make sure you have the appropriate kit.  We aim to be outside as much as possible, whatever the weather!
  • On Thursday we have our weekly Maths test to see which ‘club’ we are in.
  • Friday is our spelling test day.  New spellings are to be given out on a Friday and then tested the following week.  Remember that there are extra stamps on offer for tasks relating to the weekly spellings.


The club results and spelling results will count towards your eligibility for ‘Pupil of the Week’. – The overall reward will take place before the Christmas holidays.


Our topic for the Spring Term is ‘Hong Kong’. To start with we will be investigating Earth’s structure and how it contributes to earthquakes. 


We will then study Hong Kong and compare it to life in the UK.  We will be looking at various aspects of life in Hong Kong such as; location, travel and challenges facing Hong Kong amongst others.


We will look back at Hong Kong over time to see how it has developed. 


We are lucky enough to have a visitor from John Leggott College who has lived in Hong Kong to answer questions about life in Hong Kong. 

We will also have to opportunity to talk to different people concerning the different career paths they have taken.  They will be able to answer any questions that we have. 


Our class book is ‘Eye of the Wolf’ by Daniel Pennac.  This was voted by te children of Year 5 and 6 and was a very popular choice.  It is the story of two characters; one of a boy named Africa and one of a captive Alaskan wolf who has only one eye,
