Listen, learn, love and laugh as part of God's family

Year 6 (Oak)

Welcome to Year 6

Our teacher is Mrs Pennington (Mr Bowden and Mrs Winder teach us on a Wednesday afternoon).

We are helped by Mrs North.

Our trip to the Imperial War Museum 

Year 6 had a fantastic day visiting the Imperial War Museum, in Salford. We continued to develop our understanding of WW2 and also learnt about the impact of other wars around the world. All of the children behaved wonderfully and we had a great day out. 

Lancaster University Visit

Today, Year 6 visited Lancaster University to learn about democracy. We learnt about democracies within our school community and throughout the wider world. We then took part in a debate; voicing our opinions and listening to the views of others. 

End of SATs Treat

Year 6 have had a very well deserved treat day after a hard week of SATs. After a trip to 'The Rec', with a cooling ice lolly, we had an exciting afternoon on an inflatable race course. 


Well done to all of year 6 week - you have been amazing!!

World Book Day

Today has been a day for celebrating all things book related! We've dressed up, taken part in a book exchange, shared our favourite stories, made story spoons, designed new covers for our favourite tales and taken part in the BBC's live lesson, where we even got a mention on their website!


Year 6 had a great time taking part in their first Judo session in PE today. 

Slyne's Got Talent!

Wow! What a lot of talent we have in Year 6 this year! From Singing, to dancing, to boxing, to piano playing, Rubik's Cube solving, football skills, comedy, magicians and even arm wresting, it was such an amazing show!! Well done to everyone who performed today, you were all fab-u-lous!!

Elf Run

Today we completed our Elf Run in aid of St John's Hospice. It was quite tiring but great fun, and really got us into the Christmas spirit. Thank you for all of your sponsors. 

Computing and DT

Year 6 have been busy coding their own compasses and downloading them onto Micro:Bits as part of their learning in DT and Computing. 

Hothersall Lodge

What an amazing time we've had at Hothersall Lodge!


All of the children have been amazing; confronting every challenge with determination and a great big smile on their face. 


Throughout the week, we have enjoyed a number of exciting activities including: canoeing, climbing, orienteering, archery, mountain biking and team challenges, as well as some fun evening activities. We also enjoyed a lovely walk to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss.


The food was delicious, with plenty of choice for everyone. The children also had a great time spending their money at the tuck shop!


Everyone (including the staff) had a wonderful time because of the fantastic behaviour, attitude and resilience of the children. So a big THANK YOU and massive well done to every single child!


Here are a few photographs of our time away.

Hello and Welcome to Year 6 (Oak)!


I hope that you have all had a lovely time over the summer and are ready for a new school year. In Year 6 there are many new challenges and approaches to learning, and I am very much looking forward to working with you to ensure that the children have a very exciting and productive final year - we have a lot to look forward to!


Below you will find a few pieces of information that you might find useful. As always, if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me, either by email at or at the end of the school day, and I will do all that I can to help.


Many thanks,

Mrs Pennington. 



Homework - Homework is a key part of learning in Year 6 as it helps to embed skills we have been learning in class. Weekly English and Maths homework will be set and due the following week. I would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to complete their homework and ask for extra help, if they need it, before it needs to be handed in.

Reading - In order to continue to make good progress, it is very important that you continue to listen to your child read regularly. We will also listen to your child read as much as possible in school, so please ensure that your child has their reading book with them each day. When your child has finished their book, they will be responsible for changing it themselves by selecting a book that they have not read from our reading book library. The children will also be given lots of other opportunities to read and share books in class and are encouraged to read a range of texts including class library books, books from home, and other texts that interest them.

Spelling – Each week, your child will be given 20 spellings to learn at home. They will be tested on 10 of these the following week and new spellings sent home that day. All children will also be given a laminated list of spellings that children in England are expected to be able to spell by the end of Year 6. Supporting your child in learning these as much as you can at home will help them to make good progress. This is especially important in preparation for SATs and final writing assessments, which heavily rely on children being able to spell most words from the year 5 / year 6 spelling list correctly.

Times tables - In order to improve instant recall of multiplication and division facts, your child has been given a log in for Timetable Rockstars to help support them in their learning. It is a national expectation that all children have a secure knowledge of the 1-12 times tables, so it is important that children are prioritising any tables that they do not know!


General Reminders


  • Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days (trainers, white T-Shirt and black shorts/ tracksuit bottoms (on colder days), with their school jumper). 
  • Children are asked to bring in their own water bottle to keep in class, which they can access throughout the day. These will be sent home at the end of each day to ensure that their water is changed regularly. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.

The information below relates to the academic year 2022-2023. 


Year 6 have been putting their coding skills to good use by creating games using BBC Microbits today. They have had to think carefully about the algorithms they would like to use and 'debug' where necessary.

Visit from Morecambe Bay Trust NHS Careers Team


Year 6 enjoyed a visit from the Morecambe Bay Trust NHS careers team today, learning about the extensive number of roles available in the NHS and the importance of each one. We took part in a number of fun and interesting activities and finished the afternoon delivering a presentation. 

Climbing and Circuits at Salt Ayre

Year 6 had a great morning taking part in Clip and Climb and Circuit training at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre. 

Year 6 had a great time visiting the Lancashire War Museum today. Thanks to our fantastic hosts, (Mrs Riley and Mrs Perkins) we learnt lots about what life would have been like during the Second World War and how people worked together to get through it. First of all, we learnt about rationing and how to spot a German plane. Then we learnt about working on the home front and the important role that children would have played as ‘Cogs’. We practised bandaging each others arms and legs and learnt a type of sign language called semaphore, that people would have used to communicate over long distances. We completed the day playing games, that would have been played as entertainment during the backouts.
