Widden Primary School

Year 6


Year 6 is a huge year for children at Widden Primary School.  This year, the children learn to develop their independence further and be more responsible as they begin the final steps of their journey towards secondary school.  In the Summer, they will have their SATs but more than that, they benefit from an enriched curriculum.  They will learn more about the world around them as well as about themselves and will make great strides in their preparation for the next big step.  Year 6 is also a difficult year with lots of change and some big moments. However, the year 6 team work hard with all colleagues to ensure the children enjoy a happy and progressive year, which should be full of fun, laughter and responsibility.  

The Year 6 team:

Zephaniah - Mr Jacks 

Blackman - Mr Evans 

PPA/Management Time - Mr Baker

Mrs Nanabawa and Ms Parsons

Term 5 - Civil War and the SATs Battle

We hope that you had a lovely rest over the holiday and are ready for an exciting few weeks ahead. SATs assessments are coming up, together as a team, we are going to work hard and make sure that everyone is confident they can achieve the best outcome possible. This term we are learning about many other topics, such as the English Civil War in history, electricity in science and programming in computing. For details please see the topic web below:

Writing Units - T5

In Term 5, we are learning to write an explanation text, a newspaper article, a biography and a C.V. The main focus of the explanation text is the digestive system, looking at how food travels through our bodies. The narrative text that we are basing lots of our writing around is Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. Read the blurb below to find out more:

Long ago, a Scandinavian warrior fought three evils so powerful they threatened whole kingdoms. Standing head and shoulders above his comrades, Beowulf single-handedly saved the land of the Danes from a merciless ogre named Grendel and from his sea-hag mother. But it is his third terrible battle, with the death-dragon of the deep, in which he truly meets his match. Lovers of heroes, monsters, and the drama of battle will find this retelling as enthralling as it is tragic.
