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 Ellis. 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. 

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. Homework will be set using Seesaw. There will be a spelling task every Friday.  Every Monday, there will either be a reading comprehension or a maths task.  

This year, P.E will be taught on Mondays and Fridays so your child will need to come into school wearing a P.E kit every Monday and Friday.


Class 6 were able to explain how the circulatory system works in the human body by acting it out. Fun and hands on learning!

Maths Challenges

Class 6 have been working so hard this week for their SATs. Today they enjoyed their revision by completing a maths treasure hunt outside. Who said SATs learning couldn't be fun?

Rainforest Creatures

Class 6 are working really well to build their own rainforest animals. They are evolving into fabulous characters! In our science lessons we will be classifying them and in our geography lessons we are learning why they are endangered. Lots of fun across the curriculum.

Rainforest Debate

Class 6 debated the pros and cons of deforestation this afternoon. They must have been persuasive as they started the lesson feeling that deforestation was a bad idea. They finished the debate believing that there were some very good reasons for it. Well done class 6!

Classification Keys

Class 6 designed their own classification keys today as part of their learning in Science. They sorted the sweets using closed questions- realising the importance of clear vocabulary. Well done! 

Rainforest Drawings

Class 6 have shown how talented they are this afternoon by sketching such beautiful rainforest animals. We will develop our ideas further this half term to design and build our own rainforest animals. With these drawings as a starting-points, we can't wait to see the final pieces!

Silkscreen Printing

Class 6 have been working extremely hard this week to finish sewing their Christmas gift bags. They have learnt to use back stitch, running stitch and blanket stitch. We think they look fabulous!

Crucial Crew

Class 6 learnt so much from their "Crucial Crew" trip on Friday. They completed lots of different scenarios to prepare them for next year and beyond.

Silkscreen Printing

Class 6 have really enjoyed learning how to use a silkscreen printer this half term. They have designed images for their festive gift bags, cut out their own stencils and chosen their own colours for the final print. We think they look fabulous!


This week Year 6 have been learning how to cycle safely on the roads.  They were awarded with a badge and certificate in Celebration Assembly.

Class Assembly

Class 6 performed their assembly with real confidence this afternoon. They showed the other pupils how much they had learnt in the enrichment week: performing a song, a dance and their own musical compositions and performance poetry. Well done everyone!
