Lyminster Primary School

Growing, Caring & Learning Together


Year 6




At Lyminster Primary School we believe that Year 6 should be a year in which the children grow in confidence as young people both academically and personally. We aim to prepare them for the next stage of their learning to ensure a smooth transition to secondary school. We continue to help them develop as independent learners who can thrive and progress through the experiences of a wide and broad-based curriculum. Alongside the exciting curriculum we do make sure all children are ready for the SATs exams in May by ensuring they have plenty of opportunities to learn and deepen their knowledge and understanding in maths, reading and SPaG in addition to developing their writing. Our aim is that every child fulfils their potential within a supportive and caring environment.

Autumn Learning

Our main topic is history based and is Gunpowder, Treason and Plot! We are studying Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot plus the historical and political backdrop to this important event. We will also then be learning about democracy - how our country’s democratic system works and the history leading up to this. Our English is linked to our topic work and we are reading Black Powder by Ally Sherrick.

In Science, our current topic is Evolution and Adaption where we are studying how nature adapts and evolves and the theories associated with this, including studying Charles Darwin and other influential scientists. We have been watching David Attenborough’s A Life on our Planet which has fed in nicely to our topic and provokes a lot of discussion!

In Art we are working on a unit focussed on the theme of fossils and ammonites. We have looked at drawing skills and paint techniques plus have already created some clay ammonite pieces.
