Year 6

 Welcome to our Year 6 page! We have 3 classes in Year 6. Mrs McCorry (Room 8), Mrs McMullan (Room 7), and Mrs Wilson (Room 11). You will find our classes along the top corridor!

 Here you will find more information about Year 6; what we do, how we do it, and, it is also a place where you will be able to find links to help and support you in your learning. We will continue to update the page throughout the term to keep you informed about what we are learning in school. 

What a way to end our Eco Warriors topic…the annual Year 6 Scrapheap Challenge! As always, the effort has been phenomenal and we are so impressed with what you created from your old junk materials lying around your homes. A great way to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. ♻️

In Year 6 we have been learning how to calculate the surface area of a cuboid. We used chalk to draw around the faces of a cereals box on our desks - don’t worry Mr Campbell, we washed it off! I think the best part was getting to enjoy the cereal after! 

Our focus in maths this week has been telling the time - in 5 minute and 1 minute intervals. We have used the interactive whiteboard, our individual whiteboards, iPads, games as well as our textbooks to help us with our learning.

Year 6 enjoyed a variety of activities during Anti-Bullying Week with the focus being ‘ONE KIND WORD’! We ended the week by writing a kind word about everyone in the class. We all went home with a sheet full of 27 encouraging and uplifting comments written about us by our friends. 

Our current topic is SYSTEMS. Some of the fun activities we have enjoyed so far are:

- identifying and locating the main organs in our body.

- creating germs using a blow art technique. 

- designing and word processing a poster to show tips to boost your immune system.

In Literacy we have been learning about abstract nouns.


We selected an abstract noun and wrote a poem.

Year 6 Photo Gallery

In Year 6, we do lots of interesting activities and challenges, in the classroom, but also through outdoor learning. Take a look at the pictures below of us taking part in the various activities, and challenges.

5ft Hole Challenge - Year 6's first class novel of the year is Holes and in the book the main character Stanley Yelnats has to dig a 5ft hole every day. Year 6 were given the challenge of drawing a 5ft hole, using only a piece of string, chalk, a pencil and a 5ft shovel. Have a look at the photos to see how they went about the challenge.
