Class 6F 2019 - 2020

Mrs Foster

Welcome to Year 6


To see our topics for the Summer Term, please download our newsletter below.

Problem Solving Maths

Using 60 cubes, the children had to follow pictorial instructions to complete the final bigger cuboid. It was harder than it looked! More pictures in the gallery.


Sketching on a wet afternoon. The topic was 'Perspective' so we were all squashed in to get the best view in the house...or in this case, the classroom!


Summer term means time for baseball:


Class 6F arrived into school first thing on Monday morning faced with a critical dilemma - their chairs had marched off, unhappy with their working conditions. The children were all shocked and only left with letters from the disgruntled chairs, explaining why they had gone. There are gallery photos, below, to show how difficult writing was with no chairs.

It was then up to them to think of persuasive ways to get their chairs back and letters were written, full of persuasive features, to explain how much the chairs actually do mean to each and every one of the children. The outcome...look below and see:

Happy class, happy chairs!


Well done Class 6F on completing your SATs - brilliant effort all week!

Robotic Programming

Programming newly constructed mechanisms to move and make sounds. Look at more pictures, in the gallery below.

SATs Breakfast Club

There were lots of smiley faces in Year 6 this morning.

After a delicious breakfast with their friends, they have worked really hard to prove what they can do.


Benchball Tournament

A good way to get rid of the stress of revision. A Year 6 benchball competition - see gallery below, for more action shots!

Challenging Maths Sessions

Some of our Year 6 pupils have been enjoying applying their knowledge into more practical problem solving challenges.


Delicioso Cibo

This week was the last of our year 6 restaurants.

The children were all amazing and a real credit to FPS. Well done everyone!


See the gallery below, for extra photos.


Can you spot our extra team member, in our game of dodgeball?

Unfortunately, the cat didn't help the team at all - it just continued to lie in the sun!


The Great Wall of Rice and Spice

This week was the second of our year 6 restaurants.

The children were all amazing and a real credit to FPS. Well done everyone! 

See the gallery below, for extra photos.


Well done, Class 6F - you are worthy winners of this term's reading racetrack task. I am so proud of you all - keep the consistent reading up!

Well done to everyone who dressed up for this year's World Book Day - you looked amazing!

Also, to our very own Scribbleboy characters who performed in our WBDay assembly - you were totally ultra-mega-scribblewonderful!

PE - Dance - World War 2

Understanding how evacuees would have felt being separated from family and friends. Children were experimenting with movements and gestures in their short performances. See more in the gallery.

Flower arranging - the final task before their big reveal...

...and, the final flower finished and ready to grace a table in our restaurant...

It's Spring...so that means...flowers!

There are a few photos of the making process in the gallery, below and two of the finished products. The flowers will grace our restaurant tables when they begin this week and all through the month of March. The flowers look fantastic - showcasing a range of colours, materials and making skills. Another successful DT topic - well done, Class 6F!


Problem Solving in Maths

We were using the skills of analysing and investigating when finding out how many bricks were in a wall. Different methods were shared by the children to find out the answer.

Collecting quotes in English

In preparation for an English lesson writing a newspaper report, the children were asked to collect quotes to include in it. In groups, they became characters from Scribbleboy and spoke about the issue they were going to report on, in mini recording devices. See other photos in the gallery below.



2019's Bikeability Training Scheme has begun - the bikes are all lined up, no one has lost their key (YET!) and helmets are on. All we need is a dry, warm week!

6F - Caring about the Community Assembly

Sophia, Jessica, Lottie and Freya presented an assembly all about 'Homelessness' because they wanted us, at FPS, to be more aware about it. They were confident in their presenting skills and backed this up with an informative powerpoint presentation. Well done - a great cause and everyone learnt so much more about the causes and what we could do to help too.

Improving our fitness in PE

We have set up a 6-station circuit with 3 muscular and 3 cardio exercises. Each week, we spend 1 minute on each station, counting how many exercises we complete and then the next week we try and beat our previous score. 

DT - Analysing materials to design and make a flower.

In preparation for our restaurants, we are currently getting ready to make flowers for our table centre pieces. We have looked at and used different materials to test which would work best when making our flowers. The photo evidence can be found in the gallery, below.

Maths Problem Solving

The children got into all sorts of strange positions to solve these problems. 

Scribbleboy speeches

The children wrote speeches as the character - Ziggy Fuzz, from Scribbleboy. They used a range of persuasive techniques and structures, including: 3-part lists, alliteration, an audience focus and imagery. They then recorded themselves performing the speech. See the gallery below, for more pictures.

Forest School Sessions

Year 6 have had a great time helping Year 1 in the grounds with Mr Moulton. Today, they have been creating their own stick people based on the book 'Stick Man' by Julia Donaldson.


Locating St Lucia in our latest Geography topic.

To begin, we used a world map to predict where we thought St Lucia was located and put an 'X marks the spot' then we lined up in the order of closest to furthest away. To complete the activity, we used an atlas to become a little more familiar with the island.
