Kingfishers – Year 6

Hello and welcome to the Kingfishers class page.


My name is Mrs Walker and I am very excited about staying in Year 6 and teaching a new set of pupils. Throughout the year we have some very interesting topics that we will cover, I cannot wait to share these with you. Within the school, I am Science and PSHE leader and a member of the SLT. 


At home, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to different places, enjoying walks and spending lots of time at home, playing games and reading. 


This page will be updated throughout the year with different aspects we will be covering as well as information based upon the learning that has already taken place and useful websites.


I cannot wait to see you all and begin your Year Six journey. 


Our topics this year are:


Autumn 1 and 2     Full Steam Ahead

Spring 1 and 2      The Seafaring King Who Had Six Wives

Summer 1             Tales of the Riverbank

Summer 2             Extreme Earth


Useful information


  • During this half term, PE will be on a Tuesday. Please make sure your child wears their PE kit every Tuesday please.
  • Every Thursday we will be swimming. On these days, please send your child to school in their school uniform with a bag containing their swimming kits.
  • Children are expected to read regularly, filling in their reading diaries and bringing them in every Thursday so that I can award certificates based upon their fantastic efforts.
  • Homework will be sent on Google Classroom each Thursday for your child to complete. Once they have done this, they will then need to send it back to me on Google Classroom by the following Tuesday for me to mark and upload my comments. I look forward to seeing the wonderful work they produce.
  • Spellings will also be sent on Google Classroom each Thursday. Your child will then be tested on these the following Thursday with results being sent home once they have been marked. 

Below are some links to websites that are really useful to use throughout the year:



Autumn Term 1

During the first half term in Year 6, we have been completing lots of different activities relating to our topic based upon the Titanic. We have researched the different classes and used this knowledge to write diary entries as if we were on board.



Many of us also went on a trip to PGL. We really enjoyed our time there and completed lots of different activities, overcoming barriers and fears that we may have had. We had an absolutely fantastic time.

We have also completed our own version of the book, 'Samson's Titanic Journey'. This is a book we have studied during our time in Year 6 and used as inspiration for our own stories. We really enjoyed writing and illustrating them.

In Maths, we have been completing activities linked to our problem solving focus for this half term - number patterns. We used our times tables knowledge in order to identify patterns that we could find.
