Maths in Year 6 is great fun! Here we played an exciting maths game...
Each ball had 0.2 written on it and there were 5 balls in total to make a whole. Each child had a turn throwing the balls into the hoop. However many balls got in the hoop became their number to work with.
They recorded the percentage of balls that got in the hoop as a decimal number and a fraction. The winner was the child who had the largest fraction/ decimal number, but some children took it even further and added up the total of all their turns.
Year 6 and many of key stage 2 are all reporters on our award winning Radiowaves website. Please pop over and see our amazing work!
In Year 6 we have many exciting adventures. This is a Smilebox of a trip that a year 6 class took around London in 2013. They enjoyed a wonderful coach trip around London and visited all the famous landmarks, including an exciting visit to 10 Downing Street!

Hindleap Warren - School Journey
In November , Year 6 have the fantastic opportunity to go on a five day residential trip to Hindleap Warren. This trip allows us to partake in some amazing outdoor adventurous activities, such as abseiling, orienteering, high rise adventure, archery and team challenge tasks. Not to mention crawling through pitch black, muddy, wet tunnels and going on night walks with torches looking for animals.
Not only are our days action packed but we are also kept very busy in the evenings too - diary writing, swimming, arts and crafts and story telling in our pyjamas with hot chocolate before bedtime.
It is an amazing experience and will give you some special memories which you we will treasure for ever!!
We go on exciting trips including a one weeks
residential trip to Hindleap Warren.... This
is an amazing experience, where we cover aspects of the curriculum that
can't be covered in a city school - such as rock climbing, watching the
star, night walks, orienteering, and much more!
