Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul

Welcome to Class Six


In class 6 our class teacher is Mrs Morgan and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hayes. We are a happy class and we encourage each other to be the best that we can be!

The children can receive a range of rewards for doing well. We have a marble jar and we can collect marbles when we are working well together as a team. Once we fill the jar, we have a class treat! The children can also earn certificates to be taken home or take an item from the goody bag for individual rewards. The sticker cards will still be used and stickers are given for trying really hard.

This year your child will be set a Reading Challenge. We hope that they will read with you at home three times every week. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record which is to be handed in on Fridays so we can track their progress towards this challenge. Spellings will be given on a Friday ready to be tested the following Friday. In year 6 individual times tables are practised and tested regularly. The tests are completed within a time limit so they require rapid recall. It is necessary to know the multiplication and division facts off by heart.

This year, P.E will be taught on Tuesdays so your child will need to come into school wearing a P.E kit every Tuesday. In art lessons we aim to get creative, which can usually be very messy! If you have a spare old shirt or apron, then we would really appreciate these being brought into school to keep your child’s school uniform clean this year.

We enjoyed an hour of Bushcraft.  We made some animal habitats and enjoyed being outside and back with our friends after the Lockdown.


Christmas Takeover.

Learning about reindeers, catching snow, Christmas artwork and enjoying Christmas lunch.

Artist Julia Ogden

Our portraits have pride of place in the school entrance.  We are really proud of them.


This half term we have been working really hard on our writing.  We are really proud of our achievements.  Here is some of our work for Black History Month.

Harvest Assembly

These are the poems that we have written and will be performing in our harvest assembly.  We hope you like them.

Artist in School - Julia Ogden

We had a brilliant day working with the artist Julia Ogden.  We used acrylics to create portraits of influential people as part of our work on Black History Month.  We are thrilled with the finished portraits and are looking forward to seeing them on display.  Thank you to the PTA and supporters for funding this fabulous experience for us.

We have enjoyed designing and creating art work linked to Black HIstory Month.

Our architecture art work has created a wonderful display.

Here are some pictures of children investigating circuits in science. They were exploring the relationship between the number of batteries, the number of bulbs and observing the brightness of the bulbs.

The children are using mod roc, paint and a range of collage materials to create interesting textures. Their artwork is inspired by the British artist, Emmie Van Biervliet and they based their artwork on Chinese architecture, linking to their history topic.


We have been peer editing our writing.
