6 WILLOW - Miss Allatt

Miss Allatt -


You can find out what we are currently learning on our Curriculum Newsletter.


A big hello and welcome back to school! I hope you have all had a fantastic, safe summer and I look forward to a hard-working and exciting year ahead!
Just a note to parents/carers that if there is anything at all that I can help with throughout the year, please don’t hesitate to ask!


In Year 6, we encourage the children to be organised and prepared for each school day. We aim to further develop their independence and organisational skills in order to help prepare them for their next step in education. Your continued support in every aspect of your child’s learning is always very much appreciated.


Important Information



English and Maths homework will be set on a Tuesday to be due back in school the following Tuesday.

New spellings will be given out each Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. Every child has a log in for Spelling Shed where spelling tasks will be set weekly to aid in your child’s learning of the set spellings.

It would be really appreciated if you could encourage your child to complete their homework at home to support their learning journey.



Every child has a log in for Mathletics and TT Rock Stars. They will be set weekly Mathletics activities to complete and should try to access the activities set as often as possible. As a school we have a focus on ensuring all children know their times tables up to 12x12 and your help will be much appreciated with this as times table knowledge is essential and relied upon in many aspects of maths. The children can access TT Rock Stars to help practise their tables at home.



Reading plays an important part in children’s learning and therefore we ask that your child reads for a minimum of 20 minutes every day. It would be great if you could read with your child and for them to read on their own as well. Please don’t forget to fill in and sign their reading record and ensure reading records and books are in school every day! Each Friday, reading records will be checked and raffle tickets awarded for reading 5 lots of 20 minutes a week.



Our PE sessions will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday. The children should bring their PE kit in a bag and will get changed for PE at school on these days. These lessons will take place outside. Please make sure that your child has an appropriate outdoor kit (white round neck PE top, black/dark jogging bottoms or shorts, trainers).


Half-term Overview

This half-term our topic is A Badge of Strength. We will be studying the life of refugees today; identifying their geographical locations as well as understanding their history. We will also be learning about humans: What is like to be me in my world? How does blood travel around my body? Can I see without looking?



Revision - Maths

Revision for SATs has begun! Miss Allatt has been so impressed with our hardworking attitudes and perseverance so far! 

Science Day

On Science Day, we spent the day learning all about sports scientists. During the day, we completed research to understand what a sports scientist does before designing and completing our own experiments. 


In 6Willow, we love sharing our passions, hobbies and interests. One of our class members brought his robot into school to show us how it worked and all the hard work that had been put into making it. 

TT Rockstars Day

In DT, we were given a brief to design an educational game for a child in year 2 that would improve their hand-eye coordination and improve their knowledge of WW2. We did an excellent job at fulfilling the brief and the year 2 children enjoyed playing our games. 

To support the work of Wakefield Hospice we took part in their Reindeer Run. We had lots of fun running after Santa (Miss Stansfield) in our Christmas jumpers. 

Visit to St Peter's Church

We had a great morning at St Peter's church with Katherine learning about what Christians do when life gets hard. 

In French, we put our language knowledge to the test by playing a game to remember the verbs e.g. to run and to jump.

To mark Remembrance Day we produced poppy inspired artwork and wrote poems. We are really proud that our work is up on display in the meeting room in school for lots of people to see. 

We had a great night with UKS2 dancing the night away. We even managed to teach Miss Allatt some moves! 

We have been studying the work of Alison Kunath who produces blind contour portraits. Taking inspiration from her work we have produced our own portraits - can you tell which one belongs to each of us? 


In Geography, we have been using our maths skills to calculate the number of refugees that have entered safer countries. We were amazed by our findings and shocked to find out that so many people are forced to leave their homes. 

Cross Country Competition

Our year 6 children shone at the Horbury Pyramid cross country competition. All of our children showed values of the SPIRIT. In particular, the children were inspirational to each other with their determination to finish the race, they showed respect for each other and other schools by cheering them on and they had trust in each other to work as a team. A great time was had by all!
