Welcome to Year 6 – 6LM


Summer is here! Only one more term til the summer holidays.  We have lots of things to look forward to.


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:

  • This term, we endeavour to participate in extra P.E sessions.  Indoor and outdoor P.E kits are expected to be brought to school each day. 
  • 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.


This term we are continuing with our study of the earth’s structure with a focus upon volcanoes.


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.  We have a midwife, an ICU nurse and a police officer coming in.


Our class book is ‘Friend or Foe’. Friend or Foe is a World War 2 story written by children's author, Michael Morpurgo. David and Tucky have been evacuated from London and are now living their new life in the countryside.  However, one night, a German bomber crashes!  The two boys feel they should hate the airmen inside, but one of them saves David’s life.
