Flock of Birds Email Header


Welcome to Year 6B, and your final year with us here at Shavington Primary! We are so excited to get started on the year, and make it your best one yet. 

Your Teacher in 6B is Mrs Banfield

Your Teaching Assistants in 6B are Mrs Chapman, Mrs McGregor and Mr Jones.


Autumn Term

In the Autumn term, our first focus is "Is it ever right to fight?". We will be looking at World War 2 during this topic, and looking at the moments that shaped the war and impacted modern Britain. 



For our writing text, we will be exploring the text 'Can We Save the Tiger' by Martin Jenkins. We will be looking at creating a hybrid information text. Our mastery key focus this half term will be: 

* Enhance meaning through selecting appropriate grammar and vocabulary​

* Use modal verbs and adverbs to indicate degrees of possibility​

* Use brackets, dashes or commas to indicate parenthesis

Tiger Text

In guided reading, our focus text is 'Into The Jungle' by Katherine Rundell. We will also be exploring a variety of shorted texts using the Reading Vipers principle, to aid with preparation for our assessments looking at the varying question types and techniques to answer these. 

Jungle text


This half term in maths we will be continuing with our 4-operations topic including multiplication, short division, long division, BIDMAS and mental calculations. We will then be beginning our Fractions (!) topic. In this we will look at equivalent fractions, comparing and ordering, adding and subtracting (including mixed numbers), as well as multiplying and dividing.


Topic and Science

We will be continuing with our World War 2 topic in class, as well as studying L.S Lowry as our wartime artist. We will be beginning our Animals topic in science looking at adaptations. We have lots of other fun learning planned through other subjects and will share these with you as we complete them through Showbie. The class code has been sent out by your class teacher.

Chemistry with Cabbage

We took part in a 'Chemistry with cabbage' workshop. We made our own indicators and then tested different liquids to see if they were acidic, neutral or alkali. We then used our indicators to help us with some other various experiments. We used everyday ingredients from around the house too.
