Welcome to our Year 6 page!
Our Year 6 teachers are Mrs Willington and Miss Simpson
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Harrison and Miss Readman.
As last year, we will be using the new national curriculum objectives and assessments.
This half term both classes have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The PE uniform is black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and an appropriate change of footwear.
Homework will be given out on a Tuesday and is to be returned the following Monday.
At St Edward’s, we are linking subjects together in a cross-curricular approach. Our lessons this term will have a history focus and will be based on the Vikings.
This provides a creative curriculum and will enable your child to try out new skills and enhance their learning.
Please scroll to the bottom of this page to find web links which relate to our curriculum as well as any letters that have been sent out.
Peat Rigg 2017
Peat Rigg's Class of 2017
In Science we have been learning about the heart. In our most recent Science lesson, we carried out a number of experiments to measure our pulse rate during different exercises. We identified that the more active we were, the more our hearts needed to pump blood to our muscles and our pulse rate increased.
Year 6 took 'playing with fire' quite literally on our trip to Trinity! We had a great time carrying out Chemistry experiments - we definitely have some budding Scientists here at St Edward's.
As you know, we have been learning all about the heart and its key functions in Science. We recently extended our learning further during a heart dissection - it was really interesting to dissect the heart and identify parts such as the aorta, valves and veins for ourselves.
