Primary School

Every child has brilliance inside them. Our job is to dig it out and give it to the world!

Class 6

Apologies for no updates yesterday - wifi is very questionable!


we had a fab day yesterday despite a lot of rain!! Everyone got muddy and wet but we all enjoyed it! We sat and watched a film last night- see pictures below! And we got a full nights sleep.....(ish!)

Today the children were rudely awoken by some air horns which were definitely not myself, mrs Beale or mr baker getting revenge...loads of activities, some swimming later.....we are having a brill time!!!  



Just to let you all know we are all having a good time! We've had (some) sleep!! 

We can't wait to throw ourselves into our activities today. Hopefully pictures to follow..../

Thank you for all those who attended the Mersea Meeting today! I have uploaded the PowerPoint and the Kit List but as always -  come and see me if you have any questions. Not long now......


Year 6 were excellent at the recent rounders tournament! They didn't win but were amazing supports, played with enthusiasm and as usual were a credit to the school. Great job Year 6!!

French Day

The whole school enjoyed a very successful French Day. We ran a cafe in the hall complete with croissants and bread, learnt a French song - Jean Petit Qui Danse - and completed a French treasure hunt. Tres Bien! 


We ended the day by skypeing a French School - exciting stuff!

Fashion show

The Wyburns Fashion Show was a tremendous success. The children made outfits out of plastic bags and then paraded down the runway! (The hall!) Well done Year 6 for your incredible outfits no

Beach day


Year 6, we are all so proud of you! You were amazing during SATs week and showed so much resilience. I know that we will have smashed it! Well done all of you! YEAR 6 ARE AWESOME!smiley



Year 6 - we are so cloooose to the end! Let's keep up the good work and show them our brilliance :)

Busy busy busy! 


Wow, what a busy week! Science week, parents meetings and then our visitors! Year 6, you did me proud. Thank you for being brilliant and showing off the best you can be! 


This week we are having practice SATS (Sorry!) But it should help you with your revision over Easter.


After Easter, we will be in full on revision mode. We will also have reached the 'Relationship' side of our PSHE. Please see the attached letter for more detail. Do come and speak to me if you have any concerns at all.   

We will be celebrating Science week through a theme entitled “Spies.”

Thank you all for coming to the meeting this evening.  Please do pop in if you have any further questions! smiley


Hope you all had a lovely half term! 


Come on Year 6, Let's work hard and blow the SATs out the water....... 



Well done to our super brilliant quiz team who came second today! You were absolutely amazing - I was so impressed with your knowledge and determination to be the best you could be. We only missed out on the top spot by 2 points!


As we came second, we have secured our place in the FINAL of the KS2 quiz! How exciting! It takes place next Tuesday so we need to start training ready to WIN! smiley



Earth is.......




This week we explored how the Earth is a fascinating place. In English we explored the text Varmints and thought about how the creatures cares and views nature.  We explored this further by researching some of the most amazing places on Earth and locating them on a map. We learnt a new word- Aurora Borealis :)


As part of our Digital Media work, we explored the natural environment of school and thought about why it was fascinating. Have a look at some of the stunning pictures we captured!



Earth is Fascinating......

Welcome back! 


Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas and New Years! 


It has been a busy first week back. This week was friendship week so we explored a story all about different friendships. We enjoyed the drama activities and writing from different characters viewpoints. 


Next week we are going to kick off into our topic. #I heart Earth ! I can't wait to start exploring this topic with you. 


Remember home learning projects are due in on Friday as well as this week's Maths homework. No spellings this week though :) 





End of Autumn Term


Wow! What an end of year! Year 6, you have being brilliant this half term. There are so many highlights to share......


  • Singing at the lights - you showed your brilliance from start to finish. AMAZING!
  • SATs papers - you showed effort, perseverance and so much progress already
  • The KS2 carol concert - What superstars! So many of you stood out :) You were all brilliant but a special mention to Brandon, Lucas, Eloise, Lola, Emma, Frazer.....your voices really reached the back rows! Enthusiasm from start to finish; well done! Also, well done Mac, Banks and Watson for your prayer.
  • Writing -  The writing you produced last week was truly exceptional. It gave me Goosebumps! You all tried so hard to produce work of a high standard. Your efforts paid off.
  • Panto - The Panto was brilliant and you once again showed how sensible and mature you are. Thank you Year 6!
  • Party - What an enjoyable, yet completely random, afternoon. Please enjoy the videos watch me whip....!! I am definitely to cool for school  laugh


So all that is left to say is .....




Keep safe, enjoy and be happy.

See you in 2016! smiley

Christmas Dinner 2015

Christmas Lights 2015

Well done Class 6 for working your socks off to complete practise SATs papers. I know you are all so tired but you all tried your best!



Week Beginning 30/11/15


Christmas is definitely on its way into Class 6 ! Monday afternoon we joined Class 8 to make Christmas decorations ready for the Wyburns Wonderland on Friday. Year 6 were brilliant at helping the young children.....they just weren't so good at keeping the glitter off the floor! Sorry cleaners! angel



There is so much to look forward to next week. We have the Pantomine on Wednesday  and Christmas dinner on Thursday! no

Rayleigh Christmas Lights!


I am sure you will all agree that Year 6 were BRILLIANT!! :) I can't believe the CD failed but Year 6 were beyond spectacular. Year 6, we are all so proud of you. Pictures to follow......

Rayleigh Christmas Lights!


Hopefully we will see you all on Thursday night for our Christmas singing extravaganza!  Please meet outside Boots at 4.00pm :)




This week we have been learning how to talk about ourselves in French. Children can tell you their name, ages and how many brothers and sisters they have. 


Next week, we want to start talking about other people. It would be brilliant if the children could bring in pictures of their family to share so they can tell us all about them in French. 

Friday 6th November


What a busy week back! There has been so much learning going on in Class 6 this week, from Remembrance Day poetry to the bombing of Pearl Harbour.  We have also tackled adding and subtracting fractions this week in Maths and started our learning on Electricity too. 


Christmas will soon be upon us. Year 6 are looking forward to representing Wyburns at the Christmas Lights Switch on in Rayleigh High Street. More details to follow soon but do put Thursday 26th November in your diary! 

Monday 2nd November


Welcome back! Hope you all had a restful break.

Let the countdown to Christmas commence! smiley

Monday 19th October


A busy day today, we started with a Big Write. Our classroom was transformed into a forest as the setting from our book - 'The Winterling'. We discussed a chapter from the book and then generated lots of vocabulary.


I can't wait to read the children's writing! smiley



Today, we also produced art work in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. We collected natural materials and recreated the setting from our class book. Look at our amazing pieces.
Today we conducted a Science Experiment to find out which material would be best in the Blackout. We tried different materials and then chose one to proceed with. The results were........darkness! So much fun! Well done Year 6! smiley


Well done to the Boys football team who showed their brilliance today! You were really unlucky not to make it through!


Today we learnt the names of parts of a circle. We went outside and used the  circles on the playground to run round the diameter, radius and circumference.



Another busy week in Class 6.....


We experienced life in the Blitz on Tuesday - the classroom was bombed during an air raid. Fortunately we were able to put the classroom back together and continue with our learning.


Thursday we made gas masks and evacuation labels. Unbeknown to Year 6, this was all in preparation for Friday's lesson.....


Friday was the first Big Write of the year. Miss Williams and Mrs Beale (rather cruelly!) lined up Year 6 children in the hall and sent them off across the school to be evacuated. Some had a lovely time drinking milk and eating biscuits with Mrs Sansom smiley Others has a rather miserable time sharpening pencils, cleaning floors and sweeping carpets. Sorry Year 6! Children eventually realised it was just a Big Write and reflected on their experiences with smiles on their faces. If Year 6 come home and tell you they were working for hours on end, I reassure you it was 15 minutes! (Yes Year 6, only 15 minutes!)


Friday there was lots of brilliance recognised, we really are on top form! The good manners award was ours and there were special awards for Brandon and Chloe too. Keep up the brilliance Year 6!


MORE BRILLIANCE this week!! We won the BB cup AGAIN and were the class with the best attendance smileycheekyno Well done Class 6, you are AWESOME! 


Lots of things have been happening this week......

We had Macmillian coffee morning on Friday. Thank you for everyone who donated cakes and brought in money to donate. 



We also had school council elections.....


Well done Lucas and Sophie for becoming our new Junior Governors. Eloise and Jake are going to be our Vice Governors and help our younger children. I can't wait to see what ideas they come up with! 


Well done Frazer, Sophia, Keira and Daniel on becoming our new Sports Leaders too. 

Mersea Meeting

Thank you to all those who attended the Mersea  meeting. If you missed it, please see the information above for more details. Do come and see me if you have any questions. smiley



Another busy week in Year 6! We have  started spelling groups and maths homework was sent home this week! Please make sure that it is all returned on FRIDAY!


Thank you for  all supporting Genes for Jeans on Friday. smiley


This week, we also had a first aid assembly. We learnt the importance of first aid and how  to give CPR. Remember 30 compressions, 2 rescue breaths! And don't forget it is 999 - NOT 911!


The link below explains further and also allows the children to take part in an educational online game in which they can test their skills!

Our Autumn Curriculum

Air Raid Siren!

Our English lesson was interrupted by an air raid siren! We all had to take shelter under the table. Luckily there wasn't a fire or any real destruction - it was just the kick off to our topic A WORLD AT WAR!

Vine Making

We challenged Year 5 to a vine making competition in preparation for turning our jungle into a library! Unfortunately we didn't win but look how long our vine was! It went two lengths of the playground. Well done Year 6!



The children have being BRILLIANT so far. Such super attitudes towards school. If they continue like this, we are going to have the most AMAZING year. Well done Year 6,  keep it up!


You are also looking incredibly smart in your uniform. Make sure you maintain these high standards all year! smiley


I hope to see lots of you at open school next week. A letter will be reaching you soon about a Mersea meeting. The excitement starts already!

smileyWelcome back smiley

It has been lovely to see you all back after the summer. Hope you all had restful breaks. I've already heard about some wonderful holidays! no


A few important reminders to start the new term off....


* PE is always on Tuesday! You need to have the correct kit every week.

*Homework, as  of next week, will be given out every Friday.

*Children have a school reading book to take home. They must read regularly and record in their reading books.


Please do come and see me if you have queries about Year 6. I look forward to working with you all. Let the fun and learning begin.......
