Welcome to Year 6
2020 – 2021
Inteshar has really impressed Miss Sutcliffe with the effort he has put into his handwriting. He has worked hard to practice joining and the handwriting exercises we did in literacy have really helped!
In Literacy, we have started to have full handwriting lessons to help build up our stamina for writing. To prepare for this, we did a variety of different finger exercise to strengthen our writing hand including using elastic bands and ping pong balls. We had great fun!
We are all very proud of Michael who has recently joined class 13. Michael brought his book in to show everyone. He has written a book of poems that has been published and is now for sale on Amazon! We’ve read a few of the poems together and are very impressed by his writing talent.
We hope you enjoy reading our Autumn term newsletter.
2019 – 2020
Welcome back to our Y6 children 15.06.2020
Today the children have completed fraction, decimal, percentage conversions using the amount of different coloured m and m’s in a packet and made silly putty from the art list.
Y6 visited crucial crew last week where they had a great time learning how to keep themselves safe. They also learnt what to do in an emergency as well as consequences of making the wrong choices.
More of year 6 orienteering. This week we had a relay race to find all 16 flags around the field and playground. We had to collect all the stamps in the quickest time.
Take a look at Year 6’s first lesson on orienteering. We set up mini obstacle courses and practiced our team work, communication and directional skills to navigate our teammates around the course. We had a great time and got really carried away!
Christmas Party Fun

Year 6 visit to Crucial Crew
Crucial Crew gives Year 6 pupils life skills to deal with and avoid a range of potentially hazardous situations. It is supported by staff from Rotherham Road Safety, South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue.
On 12th March, Year 6 travelled to the Lifewise Centre, Rotherham as part of their Crucial Crew trip.
• The visit covered the following aspects:
• Road safety
• How to travel safely on a bus
• Internet safety
• First aid
• As part of the learning the children visited a replica pub, a shop, a playground and a courtroom. They learned about the consequences involved if you break the law. E.g. stealing from shops; buying/ drinking alcohol or other illegal substances.
The children felt they had gained a vast amount of knowledge and skills in how to deal with everyday experiences they may encounter in the future.
Celebrate writing in Year 6
Year 6 have published their own e-book on the iTunes/ Ibook store and we would be grateful if as many people as possible would buy it so they can raise money to adopt an orangutan – it’s only 49p!
Read a free sample or buy Save the Orangutans by Year 6, Kingfisher Primary. You can read this book with Apple Books on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac.
Y6 arrived safe and well at Walesby Forest earlier today. The children have enjoyed taking part in different activities including tackling the climbing wall. They are all looking forward to songs around the campfire later this evening.
Welcome back after the summer holidays! We hope you had a lovely break and are looking forward to your final, exciting year at Kingfisher, where we hope to be the best we can be!
