 Here are some action shots of the subjects and activities that keep our year 6s busy! 


We look at two main Artists in year six: Henri Rousseau and Wassily Kandinsky.  Using their work as inspiration, the children practise and develop their skills, working towards their own masterpiece!  Here are two Year 6 pieces of artwork inspired by Rousseau's Tiger in a Tropical Storm.

Children play a wide variety of team games including football, basketball and lacrosse.  They develop their gymnastics skills using low and high apparatus and learn dance styles, including their own compositions.  We encourage pupils to strive for their personal bests and to evaluate their performance.  For example, pupils record achievements in a range of Athletics events, including Javelin, sprints and a 'classroom to 1K challengPe!

Play is a really important part of learning and supports children in keeping healthy and developing relationships.  Whenever possible, we try to use the spacious school field at Riverside.

Children continue to develop mathematical calculation skills across the place value system from thousandths to ten millions. They compare, order and find equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages. We introduce the concept of algebra, and carry out a number of  algebraic maths investigations which the children really enjoy.

In science we cover the topics of light, electricity, classification of animals and plants, evolution and inheritance and human circulatory systems. The children develop their understanding of the scientific concepts and scientific enquiry skills through lots of practical work.

Special days

We hold a number of special days during the year: maths day, science day, world book day and festival day. These are great opportunities to explore different topics and themes beyond the normal curriculum.  We also support  national charity events such as Comic Relief and Children in Need.
