Welcome to Sachar Class
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.
Year 6 SATs
The children will be sitting their SATs during the week commencing 8th May. The tests will be spread across each day, please see the information power point to see timings. The children have been preparing for these assessments all year and will be ready to go when the week arrives. Please support your child at home by completing homework tasks, reading with them regularly and ensuring that they use Times Table Rockstars. Sleep is crucial; please get your children to rest in order to perform at their best. If you have any queries or concerns, please contact Mrs Williams via the usual channels.
Additional information, about the SATs, can also be found here.

Year 6 wrote their own Online Safety Charter on Safer Internet Day. They understand that they can use the internet safely and know what to do if they feel unsafe at any point. The children were great at discussing the pros and cons of using the internet and having an online presence, especially thinking about how that might affect them in the future.
Year 6 Made BLOOD!
As part of our learning about the circulatory system, year 6 made blood. The added a range of items to their mixture, learning the function of each part of the blood and exploring what it’s job is, in the body.
Japan Fact Files
Whilst learning about Japan, our class country, year 6 wrote their own Japan fact file. They chose their own topics, researched, and wrote their pieces. These were the fantastic outcomes!
Bag for Life DT Project
Year 6 embarked on a DT project during which they created a bag for life. They researched the purpose and materials that would be the best to use and then practiced their sewing skills. These were brilliant and were given to loved ones as gifts. They really enjoyed the project and are using the bags regularly!
Evolution & Inheritance
During our science topic, year 6 looked at a range of ammonite art and created their own pieces using media of choice. They sketched and drew beautiful fossils in an abstract form, naming their final piece. They also created ammonites from clay, using a wide range of tools and techniques that they have learned during primary school.
Good mental health and wellbeing is essential for all school pupils. It helps them to learn effectively, cope with day-to-day challenges, and develop into resilient young adults. There are a number of things that we, at school, do to support the mental health and wellbeing of the children. We aim to create a safe and supportive environment where students feel comfortable discussing their mental health and understand how to support their wellbeing. Please come and speak to the adults in school if this is something that you would like to discuss, regarding your child and we will endeavour to support you in any way that we can. There are also a range of websites that can provide support to you, as parents and carers, in order to help your child.
