Kingfishers – Year 6

Hello and welcome to the Kingfishers class page.


My name is Mrs Walker and I am very excited about teaching Year 6. 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               Tales of the Riverbank

Spring 2               Extreme Earth

Summer 1 and 2   The Seafaring King Who Had Six Wives


Spring Term


During the Spring Term Year 6 have taken part in a very exciting activity. Two members of staff from the Sir Harry Smith Science team came and completed a heart dissection which they were allowed to participate in too. The children really enjoyed this experience and learnt a great deal as well. 

Throughout the term, it was also World Book Day. We really enjoyed dressing up as different characters and taking part in different activities throughout the day.

On 17th March 2023, we all took part in a challenge set as part of Comic Relief called 'Build the Change'. The children worked in groups to design and make something that would either help people or the planet. The year six pupils were fantastic at designing and working in groups to make their design a reality!

Useful information


  • During this half term, PE and Games will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure your child wears their PE kit on these days.
  • 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.

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