Year 6

Marwell Activity Centre 16/07/18

Year 6 had an excellent time at Marwell Activity centre .

They especially enjoyed the obstacle course, where some of us were made very wet!

A Day at The University of Portsmouth

This term our Year 6 children spent an entire day at The University of Portsmouth for a ‘Mini-University Experience’. The day involved taking part in a mini-lecture based around an academic subject, a tour of the University, where the children got to see a selection of the University’s first-class facilities; and a whole-class graduation ceremony, where the children wore real gowns and mortar board hats and received their own graduation certificate.


The University of Portsmouth’s UP for Juniors team organise for 1900 children, from schools in and around Portsmouth, to visit during the month of June and early July every year. The team aims to encourage children to think about their futures, increase their confidence levels, understand how higher education works, and above all, raise their aspirations.

Our Year 6 children have returned from their trip to The University of Portsmouth feeling inspired and excited about the possibilities that their futures hold for them. We (the staff) are very proud of the way the children embraced the University experience and hope that the children’s university dreams will one day become a reality.

Year 6 really enjoyed their end of term class matches, deciding on whether they would prefer to play football or hockey.


They managed, planned and played very well, showing what fantastic team players they really are.

WW2 Topic Day


Y5/Y6 held a WW2 topic day.


They took part in a carousel of activities during the day including: art - painting a 'Blitz' picture; making a bomb shelter - out of recycled materials; singing wartime songs and drama. Parents were invited to visit in the afternoon to view their creative efforts.

‘Postcards from neighbours’

The Y6 children entered the ‘postcards from neighbours’ artist competition this February. The postcards were on display in Aspex Gallery for the whole community to enjoy! Their entries were brilliant.

Tom the Tale Teller

Year 6 enjoyed Tom The Tale Teller's stories and listened carefully to the moral of each tale.


'Show Racism the Red Card'.


Y6 visited Fratton Park yesterday to attend a workshop about racism.


They were being 'reporters' for the afternoon, taking notes and preparing questions for the panel.


Portsmouth's latest signing attended, and was part of the panel.


Chris Lubbe from South Africa (Nelson Mandela's former bodyguard) was a guest speaker, recounting anecdotes from his life during 'Apartheid'.


Joy won a prize for asking the best question - "why do people think its ok to be racist?"

Reading Cafe


Year 6 are really enjoying the fortnightly reading cafe. A chance to discuss their favourite books, share texts or just have a bit of quiet time and a ‘chill-out’ over the lunch break - with a drink and a biscuit to accompany them!

Children In Need Day 2017 year 6 shared quality time with their buddies

Year 6 have created some wonderful portraits representing the different titles they identified for Our Lady Mary.

Year 6 and Reception Buddies


Year 6 have been working hard on their weekly home learning this half term. Michael Morpurgo’s Novel, ‘long way home’, has inspired their writing and they have written some amazing setting descriptions. We have sent some of them to the famous author himself!

Year 6 have been working on an Art and Poetry project inspired by Thomas Locker. Their poems are impressive and language rich; their paintings are equally pleasing. Mrs Vaughan has displayed their work beautifully.


 Please take a moment to stop by and look at their learning.
