Year Six - Mr Robins

Welcome to 6AR

I would like to welcome everyone to 6AR's webpage. This is the place where you can see what we get up to during what I am sure will be an extremely busy, but fun and rewarding year. We hope you enjoy following us throughout the year and looking at examples of the amazing work we will be producing.

Weekly Info



PE lessons will be on a Wednesday. Please make sure that you bring both indoor and outdoor PE kit just in case. 



Please bring your book bags and homework to school on Thursdays so we can check them and give you a new reading book. Thursday is also when we will do our spelling and times tables tests so don't forget to practise these at home. You will be given a new book on Friday along with some maths homework. 



This term we will be completing a range of work based on the story 'Clockwork' by Philip Pullman, including writing character descriptions, diary entries and predicting what will happen at certain points in the story.



This term we will be reading and writing numbers up to 10,000,000, ordering and comparing numbers, rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 and also solving addition, subtraction and multiplication calculations using the column method.

Spring Term 1

Hello and welcome back. May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope you all had a lovely holiday.

The children came back all full of energy and got straight back into their learning very quickly.


This term we are using the book Oliver Twist as our main text and shall be writing a range of texts based on the book, including information posters, diary entires, newspaper reports and many more. If you click the link below, we will be adding examples of our work as we go along the term.

In our main classes we are also focussing on crime and punishment throughout the ages and have already had a taste of what life was like back in Victorian Britain.


During the afternoon of our first day back we were sent back in time and got to experience what life was like in a Victorian school, a Victorian courtroom and inside a Workhouse. Once again, feel free to click the link below to see examples of our work as we complete them.


Please continue to listen and support your children with their reading at home and encourage them with their spellings and times tables. This will have a positive effect on their learning in school as we get nearer to the time of their SATs tests, which are now only a handful of months away. Thank you.

Spring Term 2

The theme for this half term is Natural Disasters. We will be researching what types of natural disasters occur around the globe and whether specific areas are affected more than others. We shall be producing pieces of writing linked to historical disasters as well as writing informational pieces.


At the end of the term, we are hoping to hold an event in school that will raise some money for a chosen charity who work in supporting people affected by natural disasters.

Summer Term 1

This term has been a very busy term indeed. We were full steam ahead for our SATs exams so spent a lot of time in preparation for them. However, Mr Robins still wanted us to have some fun with our learning and we certainly did that with the book we focussed on - the very scary Macbeth by William Shakespeare.

Summer Term 2

Now that SATs are over, we are back in our own classes in year 6.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our class webpage. We hope you have enjoyed looking at our work during the year and hope we have maybe taught you something new.

A message from Mr Robins


As their teacher throughout the year, I would like to say a huge thanks to the children whose hard work fills this webpage. It has been a pleasure teaching this group of amazing children and they are a credit to all the adults at home and in school who have nurtured them through their time at Clapgate. Special thanks also to Miss Rider and Mr Khalid for their support in class.


Parents and carers at home, a big thank you for your support throughout this academic year in encouraging your children through their last year here at Clapgate.


Even though they still have half term left, I would like to wish them every success as they start their new and exciting adventure onto high school.


Thank you



Mr Robins
