Be The B.E.S.T To Achieve Success For All

Miss Jager, Mr Fox and Miss Mylett WELCOME you to Year 6 in Yellow Base.


Welcome to our class page, where you will find all the useful information that you will need during your time in our class.


Our day starts at 8:40am where our door will be open for children to come in until 8:50am. Our day ends at 3:10pm.


Our PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor). Children need to come to school in their PE kit which is trainers, black shorts/ bottoms, a white t-shirt and black zip up jacket. Please make sure that your child can remove their own earrings or remove these prior to PE on these days.


Homework is daily reading of either a levelled book or a book from the classroom or library (levelled books are changed each Monday). The aim is to read a minimum of 5 times in a week for 10 - 15 minutes each time. This will help your child build fluency in reading. Children will have weekly spellings to learn and will come home with a spelling plan at the beginning of each half term. In addition to this, they will also need to practise key words from Key Stage 2 spelling lists. Your child will come home with the words they need to practise. Maths homework centres around fluency. Children can practise learning their times tables and other number facts online using their Times Table Rock Stars account.


We also hand out knowledge organisers to learn and set half termly homework projects based upon the upcoming focus in class. We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead full of interesting and engaging learning. During half term five, our history topic is called 'The Ancient Greeks'.


If there is any information that you can't find on our class page please get in touch with the school office by email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Take a look at our most recent learning

Science Week

What a super science week we have had in Y6 this week! Creating lava lamps, skittle rainbows and attempting to save an ice cube from melting.

Local Visit to St. Mary's Church in Beighton

To finish off our first half term's learning about the Victorians, Year 5 and 6 became enquiring historians and went on a local walk to St Mary's Church in Beighton. On the way there we looked at different Victorian houses and discussed how we knew they were from the Victorian times whilst also comparing them to more modern houses today. We then went to the church graveyard to complete a quiz about different Victorians that lived in Beighton. We were surprised at how young some of the children were and how many children some families had! As we were exploring the graveyard, one of the volunteers at the Church invited us inside to have a look at the Victorian arch and he also told us the bells at the Church haven't been changed since the Victorian times! 

UK Parliament Week 2023

Our Year 6 Executive Committee worked hard during Parliament Week to put on a carousel of activities for the whole school to learn more about how Parliament works. The activities were enjoyed by all ages and they were a great way to end a whole week of learning about how the government works in England.


Year 6 have been learning how the planets in our solar system move in a physical and engaging way this week! We have learnt that they move in a heliocentric way (the planets move around the sun).
