Year 6 Falcons


Welcome to our Class Blog!

Come check out our amazing journey of learning! Throughout the year, we will be updating the progress so please feel free to see what we're doing and how your child is getting on! 


Class teachers: Mr Myland and Mrs Smith

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Williamson


Here are some fab links to help your child with their learning:


BBC Bitesize KS2

A good website which covers all subjects we teach throughout the year. I suggest this is your go-to website for understanding the vocabulary that is used in the curriculum.


We use DoodleMaths as our online homework for Maths. It's a great tool for children to learn a range of new skills, and this AI software changes difficulty levels depending on how they find the questions. A 10 minute, short, sharp approach works perfectly for this!



Term 1- Homefront


Why did the world go to war? How did the wars impact our locality? Why did Lincolnshire become known as Bomber County? In Homefront, Year 6 discover how members of the Spalding area contributed to the defence of our country.

This term the children will experience what it was like to be evacuated during World War Two. Our learning in history will particularly focus on the ability to empathise with people from the past whilst examining different types of historical source to support their understanding. The topic will allow us to focus on our local history by analysing the impact of the war on our community. The study will involve research into local airfields, the impact of the Women’s Land Army, evacuation to rural areas as well as the part the area played in the Battle of Britain.


Week 4


This week we had a visiting poet run some workshops with the children.  We spent time with him creating and learning a poem with actions.  At the end of the day, we came back into the hall to perform our sections of the poem alongside the other year groups in school.



Week 3


This week we've been looking at how to solve problems where there are missing digits in a column method.  This is something that often turns up in our reasoning questions.  To help us to understand it better, we used our Maths practical boxes to build the numbers and understand the logic behind how to solve these.

Week 1- Science


We used our science session today to learn about how light travels in straight lines.  We all knew this but how to prove it.  We set up an experiment using a series of cards with hole punched in theme and found that the light would only pass through them all if all holes were lined up.



Week 1- WW2 WOW day


On our first day back at school we split into groups to experience what life would have been like at the start of the war.  We trained as ARP wardens and learnt how to spot enemy aircraft.  We dug down in our archaeological site and found artefacts from the war in the layers of the trench.  We also found a mysterious parachute in the school grounds and had to crack a secret code to find a spy.
