‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

Trent, Severn

Welcome to Year 6!

Our teachers are:

Miss Graham : Trent Class

Mr Barnett: Severn Class

Our Teaching Assistant is Miss Young

We are working hard and having fun in Year 6. Have a look below to see what we have been up to. The children's Mayan masks look superb!


We want to help you 'achieve your best' this year, so here are so many some top-tips to ensure success in Year 6:

  • Get reading! Reading is great and we expect every child to be reading at home and to have their journal signed every week.
  • Don't leave Homework until the night before. Homework for English and Maths will be given out on Friday and is due back on Thursday. If you don't get it, your teacher will be happy to go through it with you.
  • Practise your tables at home using Rock Star Times Table (see below for the link). You could help your class win a battle, but you'll also find Maths SO much easier if you can remember a few facts.
  • Get stuck in! We have lots of opportunities for you in Year 6. The best thing you can do is to try to get the most out of everything.

Mayan Masks 2018

We have been studying the Mayans and as part of this we researched the tradition of masks: these were used for various ceremonial and cultural reasons in Mayan culture. Children studied a range of masks, and then designed and made their own versions. The results are spectacular and every child should be really proud of what they have achieved.

Y6 Evacuee Day

Still image for this video
Year 6 took part in an Evacuee Day, imagining what life would have been like for children during World War 2. They played games of the period, learned to identify planes (and know whether they were friend or foe!), experienced a 1940's billeting exercise and even tried out their gas masks in a real-life Anderson Shelter. What a day!

Children have been learning about the Blitz, producing some powerful descriptions and imaginative art.

Operation Pied Piper Radio Broadcasts

Nojus, Zuzia and Grace worked hard to write the script, record and combine sound effects and music to make this superb broadcast. Have a listen!

Operation Pied Piper Radio Broadcasts

This is a great effort from Ben and Ewan (with a little bit of help from Fred in the editing stages)- they wrote this and produced it independently and also downloaded and edited all the sound effects. Amazing work from Barnby Road children!

Ben and Casey's Editing skills

Ben and Casey combined music, sound effects and skilful editing to produce a radio propaganda broadcast

Sam and Ollie combined pictures, music and speech to persuade a 1940's parent to let their child be evacuated in Operation Pied Piper. Great work!

Last term, our topic in Year 6 was the Mayans. We researched Mayan masks and then designed and made our own. Have look to see your mask. This is brilliant work from Barnby Road children.
