Yr 6 - Saturn

This is Year 6’s final ½ term at Swarcliffe Primary School! After an extremely hard Summer Term 1, our class now have the luxury of celebrating the final few weeks at school in style. The prom will be held on 19th July 2012 and we are all looking forward to this spectacular event. They have all worked so hard and truly deserve it. The theme for the prom has not yet been decided, any suggestions, please let us know.


On the 20th July we will be holding our end of year leavers’ assembly. This could be a rather emotional day!

On Wednesday 18th April the whole school travelled back in time to visit Beamish (a town set in 1913). Everything, even the streets, shops, schools and banks are exactly how they were all those years ago.

It was extremely interesting to have first hand experience of what life was like back then. See the pictures below to show you just exactly what it was like.

Look out for some of our pieces of writing which we created related to our exciting journey back in time!!!

SATs week begins on Monday 14th May and all of Year 6 are more than ready for this extremely important week. During this week a breakfast of fresh fruit, croissants and fruit juice will be provided for all pupils in Mrs Rothwell’s class.


Welcome back to Spring 2 Year 6

This ½ term we have many things to look forward to. On Monday 27th February we are lucky enough to visit a Buddhist centre called Madhyamaka Buddhist Centre. This Meditation Centre is internationally known. They welcome everyone to come and enjoy this very special place where we can learn and see Buddhism being put into practice in modern times. During your first week back in school you will be given all of the information so that you are ready for this trip.

We will start the ½ term focusing on one particular book which will presented to us during our first day back after the holiday. All of our learning for the ½ term will be based around this book so that we can develop our Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Enterprise, Art, Music, Technology (cooking) and Geography skills. Be prepared to try new food Year 6! What do you think the book will be?


We will keep you up to date with other information for this ½ term over the next 6 weeks.

Please remember this is a very important term for our SATs so it is important that homework and booster work is ALWAYS completed!


Welcome back to the start of our new spring term. It has been another excellent start as all children in year 6 have had AMAZING behaviour since we have been back. This is an expectation I am sure you will continue to meet!


During a rather interesting assembly on 9th January we were thrown into the start of our new and exciting topic ‘Bang goes the theory.’ Each teacher took the time to demonstrate an unusual experiment which they thought would capture the schools imagination and attention. Mrs Rothwell’s certainly did!


Over the next few weeks we will continue to develop our understanding of Science so that we can explain many more marvellous investigations which parents will have the opportunity to see during our focus Friday. We look forward to seeing you there!


Half Term is nearly here!


Well, we've made it through our first half term as Year 6 and what a half term it's been.
We have delved into the magical world of William Shakespeare and explored the tragic romance of Romeo and Juliet.
We have re-created battles, composed poetry, written fabulous descriptions and drafted fiery discussions.

On top of this, we have been developing our mathematical skills further with column addition and subtraction, excellent recall of our times tables, understanding shapes and reading graphs and charts.

AND as well as all of this, we really enjoyed our research on Black History Month where we found much more about such huge role models as Martin Luther King and Jesse Owens... "dedication, determination, self-disipline and effort"!

We are so proud of the hard work we have done and the results we have achieved. If you would like just a small taster of some of this, please pop by and see our Focus Friday performance on Friday 21st at 9.15!

Welcome to Year 6!


Hello and welcome back to a busy and exciting new year back at school. I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday with lots of interesting stories to tell me.


Year 6 is a very important school year and I am certain that you will all work exceptionally hard to reach your full potential.
