Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Our final topic in Year 6 is "Extreme Earth". We'll find out about different places all around the world and compare them with Durham. We'll also find out about the damage people are causing to our wonderful planet and think about how we can stop it.


We will be doing PE on a Friday during Term 3a then we'll be doing multiskills on a Thursday with AE Coaching during Term 3b so please come to school wearing your full PE kit ready for PE every week. 


We'll continue to share the information we receive from the Secondary Schools with you and we'll be completing our transition programme in PSHE throughout the term so we are all ready for September.


As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes
