Year 6 Long Term Plan

Meet our school councillors 

Ruby and Isaac have been voted in as our school councillors. They meet regularly with Mrs Sunderland and the other councillors to discuss suggestions provided by children in the class to make our school a better place. Below are photos of our ‘Ask-it basket’ and school council suggestion box.

Autumn 2


Year 6 have been learning about different types of microorganisms and if they are helpful or harmful for us as humans. They learnt there are 5 types: virus, algae, Protozoa, bacteria and fungi.


 The children have been learning how to crack different types of codes. The first code we looked at was a Caesar Cipher. 


Year 6 are loving taking part in French lessons with Madame Bex. They have learnt lots of new songs, can give directions using compass points and have been introduced to Madame Bex’s helper!

Times tables challenges!

Year 6 are working hard to master their times tables. We have been having a competition in class using hit the button, TTRS and timestables.co.uk

PSHCE Virtual assembly

Year 6 joined in on a virtual assembly about British Values and the protected characteristics. They gave some really thoughtful opinions during the session and we even got a shout out during the assembly!

Leeds United Foundation Workshop

Autumn 2 has begun with a workshop delivered by Hannah from Leeds United which explored being a good citizen, what anti-social behaviour is and how we can make our community a great place. The children watched videos and gave fantastic opinions about consequences of anti social behaviour, crime and what they should do in specific situations.

P.E. Dance

Year 6 have been using dance movements with their bodies to create a short performance based around 4 different stamp, clap phrases.

Please see some of the amazing routines below.

Autumn 1

Year 6 have had an amazing two weeks settling into our class routines and are already blowing me away with the work they are producing! 

In DT, the children have been designing a playground and thinking about what equipment would make it fun and enjoyable for all children.

In RE, Year 6 have been discussing the importance of values to themselves and also the lives of Sikh's.

In PE, the children have loved trying Golf and learning how to safely carry out different skills in the lesson.

In Science, the children had to design an animal that had adapted to suit its' environment. They used their presentation skills to wow their peers by discussing what their animal was and how it had adapted to make it suitable for its' environment.

Design Technology - playground planning phase

Year 6 are designing a playground that have 6 different apparatus in. They have to think about it being inclusive to all children and obviously it has to be fun! They are currently in their design phase. 

Science - Plant and animal adaptations research

Music - Advanced rhythms

Design technology - planning and making phase

Year 6 are now well into their ‘making phase’ and are showing how creative they are in designing their own playground apparatus. They have begun building their apparatus and will finish the landscaping next week!

Design Technology - prototypes complete!
