Welcome to Kingfishers
For nothing will be impossible with God
Luke 1 v37
On behalf of the staff and children of Year Six, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to our class page.
Term One of a new school year: new beginnings, fresh starts and energy restored! Together, we will reach for the stars this year because anything is possible as long as we try! I cannot believe that you are about to embark on your final year of primary school but I am excited and full of enthusiasm for our next learning journey. We are sure to acquire lots of knowledge, enjoyment and memories along the way!
This section of our website will be used to provide a summary of Year Six's learning journey. It will also be used to share information and post regular updates. Scroll down to view our adventures!
As always, the door to our classroom is always open…’alone we can do so little; together we can do so much!’

Our Learning Journey
This section of our class page will be used to provide you with an insight into our classroom and learning adventures.
Our Autumn Term Adventures
Discovery – WW2
To launch our Discovery Journey, we explored a range of sources and generated a range of questions to steer our learning. Thought provoking discussions and interactions taking place. This is going to be one insightful and enjoyable topic to explore.
Current and Static Electricity
To help us understand how current and static electricity work we role played the processes involved in a working circuit and explored static electricity in action.
They had an awesome time and their articulation of processes are really developing. Amazing work from all.
HRH Queen Elizabeth II
We were saddened to hear the news of Queen Elizabeth’s passing. As a class, we reflected upon her remarkable achievements and reign. Her values and sense of duty will serve us well. We send our thoughts and prayers to the Royal Family.
Our prayer station...
Ukulele – Music
We are loving our Music lessons this term! We are so lucky to have a musician supporting out learning and teaching us how to play the Ukulele. If this is what we sound like after week one, I cannot wait to hear what we sound like at the end of the term!
Listen to us play...
To start our Science learning, we had to think about what all the items concealed within our feely bag had in common. This helped us recall our prior learning and think about certain properties of materials. With some gentle questioning and through process of elimination, we soon worked out that all items concealed were conductors. Yes, you guessed it, we are exploring electricity in Science.
To kick start our English unit this term, we started to explore ‘The Planet in a Pickle Jar’. We captured memories of our scarred places and considered why they were important to use. We then worked on bottling these so that we have something to refer back to throughout the year – reminding us of why we challenge ourselves to be the best we can be. I was delighted with the super descriptive writing outcomes – the children are really focusing on using precise language.
