Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


This term our topic is 'Water water everywhere'. We will be looking at the water cycle and features of rivers in geography, including visiting a local river (either as part of the Hilltop trip or at the Museum of East Anglian Life). In science, we will focus on classifying plants and animals according to their common characteristics, where will look particularly at water-based animals.

Reminder - Year 6 Assembly


Our year group assembly will be taking place on Friday 23rd November at 9am. As always, parents and carers are more than welcome to come along and watch.



Please be aware that if children sign up to one of our clubs, we expect them to attend every week. Any non-attendance will need to be reported to the office by a parent/carer. This is especially important to children in years 5 and 6 who have permission to walk by themselves. Thank you

Remembrance Service


On Thursday 8th November, our Head Boy, Head Girl and Prefects attended a Service of Remembrance at Stowmarket Cemetery, along with representatives from other schools in the area. The children each conducted a reading about a local soldier to honour and remember them and a wreath was laid.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural understanding in Year 6


  • We have started reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio in our English lessons. This has sparked lots of discussion regarding differences and how we should treat others.
  • We have been voting for our school council and eco representatives and our sports ambassadors this term. We will be having fortnightly class councils meetings for us all to share our ideas and our school council representatives will then take these to school council meetings.
  • As part of our topic, we will be looking at being 'water wise' and considering things we can do to save water at home and at school.
  • Some of us will be going to Hilltop where we will be trying different challenges to persevere with, overcoming our fears and working together as a team.
  • In Year 6, some of us will have the extra responsibility of being head boy, head girl, a prefect or a house captain. These require great leadership skills and for us to be role models for the rest of the school.
