Welcome to our class page!

Year 6 are taught by Mr Knowles and supported by Mrs Davies and Mrs Morris.

With an eye on the future and six years of Waingroves Primary School wisdom behind us, we are in a the most exciting time in our Primary school lives!

Here is an overview of our exciting year:

Our Year 6 topics are led by exciting questions, which will prompt deep and meaningful learning across the National Curriculum. They are:

Why do people go to war?

What would a journey through the human body look like?

Chocolate: good or bad?

Were the Greeks really good?

Have we always looked like this?

What will I find in the house of Wisdom?

Our Clarinet Concert:

Year 6 had the honour of performing a selection songs and clarinet pieces to parents and carers on Monday 13th September. We have spent 15 weeks learning to play the clarinet as part of the Derbyshire Music Partnership scheme.

Team Challenge Day:

On the last day of the first Spring half term, each colour team competed to make a boat out of nothing but a piece of 30x200cm piece of tin foil. The aim was for the boat to carry as many marbles as possible!.

Some designs were ingenious! In the end the Blue Team won! We had loads of fun watching boats sink!
