Summer Term 2024

Finding your way

Our summer term is underway!

This is a very special time for Year 6 as the realisation of this being their final year at primary school starts to set in. We are super keen to start our new class reader, 'The Final Year', which is perfectly pertinent and highly recommended. 

"It's that good I read 50 pages in the blink of an eye!" - Mr. Tetley


The first week back has been packed with revision as we are working hard to prepare for SATs. We are also very much looking forward to activities week later in the summer term; it's keeping us motivated!





In June we have our activities week, there will be so many new any interesting activities on the horizon.


Our PE unit for this half-term is athletics. Getting us ready for our upcoming Sports Day.


In RE, we have spent time reflecting on Easter and thinking about differing views and opinions on the resurrection. We have considered how belief in the resurrection makes a difference to how people respond to challenges and problems in the world today, such as inequality, poverty and illness. 

Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You not only died on the cross for our sins, but You rose again from the dead so that we could have a victorious, overcoming, Christian life here on earth as it is in heaven. Father, let everyone walk in the power of that resurrection truth. I pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

Summer 2


We started this half-term writing letters to persuade the council to provide us with a safer school crossing. It was a great opportunity for us to learn and practise formal writing techniques and apply the grammar focus of passive voice.




In reading lessons, we have been focusing on inference skills and have enjoyed reading extracts from The Asparagus Bunch - a novel about a neurodiverse boy, navigating life's challenges. We explored our impressions of the main character, Leon; justified inferences using evidence from the text and used point, evidence, explain to structure our answers. 




Our DT project this half-term was - Hero Ingredient (berries). We researched recipes, considering seasonality, complementary flavours and nutritional value. We also planned the meal within a budget before making a variety of desserts, using seasonal berries.

"Cooking created a primary school memory I'll never forget. It was super enjoyable and fun because I was with my friends" - Lydia. 

"We spread joy by sharing our cheesecake with staff. Miss James and Mrs Watmuff loved it!" - Layla. 


Our sculpture project was inspired by the work of Louise Nevelson (September 23, 1899 – April 17, 1988), who was an American sculptor known for using assemblage to create monumental sculptures. We completed an artist study page in our sketchbooks and considered how we could use some of her techniques to express our memories from primary school. 

After careful planning, we manipulated cardboard to create 3D forms and different textures, using cutting, ripping, tearing, folding and bending. We also used a variety of other materials to create our memory boxes. 

Activities Week

What an eventful week... a walking trip to Goals in the sunshine; volleyball and archery with Sports UK; a day packed full of indoor and outdoor activities; Takeover Day, a thrill-seeking trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach and to finish the week off, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and orienteering at Yeadon Tarn!
