Year 6 - St. Martin


St Martin's class



Welcome to Year 6.


The Curriculum newsletter contains all of the information on what the children will be learning this term and our PE days are on a Monday and Thursday. 


Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week. 

Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday and will be due in on the following Monday. 

It is very important children are also going on Bedrock and Mathletics as part of their homework. 

Year 6 are enjoying their ukulele lessons- they have already learnt so much and learning the different chords and putting these to music.

We visited the Imperial War Museum to support our new topic on World War Two.

As part of our Continent work on Europe this week, we have been looking at Poland. We created some of our own pieces of Polish folk art using paper layering called Wycinanki.

We have completed two fun activities on our last morning, the trapeze- leap of faith and the giant swing. Now on the way back to school.

Our last full day..the children have been so well behaved with some lovely compliments from other schools on their behaviour. We started the day with a happy birthday. We have done abseiling, survival in the woods, jacobs ladder and tunnel trails. We ended the day with ambush in the woods. We are excited for tomorrows activities.

Today we have done some more exciting activities, we went on the zip wire (some of us more than once), completed problem solving activities, fencing and orienteering. We had an evening quiz which got very competitive. We have eaten well and slept well too!

We have a very busy first full day. We have taken part in rock climbing, sensory trail, archery and buggy building. We have been working really well as a team and supporting each other. We had a cold but fun campfire this evening.

Year 6 arrived safely at Marchants hill. Some even slept on the coach. We’ve settled into our rooms, had a lovely evening and have been playing group games to settle in. These are just a selection of photos.

As part of the schools singing programme, Year 6 were lucky enough to sing at Bishop Moger’s Episcopal Ordination this week. They did an amazing job.

Here are a selection of the fantastic projects created over half term on racial justice.

Junior Citizenship workshop- We attended a Year 6 workshop to prepare us for secondary school. We listened to talks and took part in activities with a variety of organisations. TFL showing us how to travel safely to and from school, we looked at road safety and what different road signs mean. The Police talked to us about keeping safe and knife crime, the Paramedics taught us how to put someone into the recovery position if they were unconscious and the fire brigade taught us about fire safety.

NSPCC workshop

Centre of Cell- Genes and Evolution workshop. As part of our Science topic we had a fun workshop all about our genes, DNA and how living things adapt and evolve.

Christmas holiday projects- After enjoying the World Cup, we were set the task to create and design our own versions of the World cup trophy.

Into film festival- Year 6 had a lovely time watching Sing 2 as part of the schools into film festival.

DT- As part of our work on Victorian recipes in DT, we have so far made gruel, brown bread ice cream and this weeks recipe was Victoria sponge.

Half term projects- The Victorians. We did research, drawings and made models to extend our learning on the topic.

St Bernadette Relic tour- visit to the cathedral.

Houses of Parliament tour and workshop. Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Parliament today. They saw the House of Commons, the house of Lords and saw the speakers procession. We had our own debate in a committee room and then during the workshop Neil Coyle- our schools MP came to visit and held a question and answer session.

In Science, as part of our work on the circulatory system, we looked at the components of blood and created our own using ingredients to represent each part. The plasma, the red blood cells, the white blood cells and the platelets.

Local Area walk- As part of our local area week in Year 6, we walked around the area of the Imperial War Museum which used to be the site of the Bethlem hospital. We did research and found out more about the hospital.
