Welcome to Year 6 at Treloweth, the final chapter of your primary school journey. A year of exciting opportunities, rewarding experiences and challenge! This is your year to shine. From sports competitions to SATs; transition days to our residential visit; book buddies, science leaders and book sellers; public speaking to the final production, there is something for everyone in Year 6.

 

As well as reaching our potential academically, there will be plenty of opportunities to participate in key areas of responsibility within the school that will equip you for your transition to secondary school.

 

In Year 6 you will be expected to work hard but in return, you will be rewarded with many happy memories, lasting friendships, and an increased confidence to take you onto your next adventure.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to our Year 6 team!

New Additions to Year 6!

This week, Year 6 welcomed eight 'Sunny' stick insects!

Over the next few weeks, the children will be studying these fascinating creatures, to develop a greater understanding of their natural habitat. They will learn about how stick insects have adapted and evolved to suit the environment in which they live, discussing camouflage and diet, as well as learn to care for them on a day-to-day basis. 

Not satisfied with just eight, Year 6 have also been given stick insect eggs, which they will hatch over the coming weeks.

Watch this space!

Science Week

For Science Week, which was held across the school, Year 6 focused on adaptation. We were lucky to have Mark's Ark visit, along with various creatures that have adapted over millions of years to suit their environments and living needs.

Year 6 Superstars

Year 6 have conquered BODMAS and long division this week, as well as taking some time to study poetry during English.  We’ve looked at Tennyson’s ‘The Lady of Shalott’ and then wrote a free verse poem based on the Literacy Shed video ‘The Clocktower’. Click the link to see it for yourself!

The children have worked really hard and the results have been fantastic – well done Year 6!  We have had a great first half term – enjoy the break and come back ready to work even harder!
