Dear Year 6 Parents/carers and children of Oak class,


Welcome to our class page! Our class page will be regularly updated throughout the year with our exciting curriculum learning challenges. As this is their last school year with us at Westfield, let's make it one to remember!

If you would like to discuss your child's learning or have any questions about Year 6, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment. 

As always, thank you for your continued support.

Mr Adams and Mrs Paterson 





Autumn Term - Topic: Vicious Vikings

Our topic 'Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?' is off with a bang with a visit to Moorforge Viking Settlement.

On our WOW day, we experienced what it was like to travel back in time to the Viking period to meet a real-life Viking! We discovered where and how Vikings lived, how they used their weapons, went hunting and learned all about Viking religion. 


We could not thank Moorforge Viking Settlement enough for the experience - we thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Autumn Term - Science: Light

During the Autumn term, we have been learning about Light. The children have enjoyed explaining how light travels and how we can see different objects.

We made our own periscopes to help us model and explain how we can see around corners. 

Autumn Term - Mental Health Week

During Mental Health week, Year 6 enjoyed making bath bombs with Mrs Ridehalgh as part of our mindful afternoons. We looked at the importance of sleep and ways in which we could improve our well-being.

We were also lucky enough to have some teachers come from St Joseph's visit us to do some Viking clay work. 

Autumn Term - PE: Benchball


This term in PE we have been working with Ross to develop our skills used when playing benchball!
