Numbers to 10,000,000 Scavenger Hunt


Both Year 6 classes took part in a scavenger hunt to consolidate their understanding of place value in numbers up to 10, 000,000. The children worked in pairs to locate different questions scattered around the playground and provide answers on their answer sheets, before having their answers checked by an adult.

We really enjoyed playing 3 in a row with our partners today using negative numbers. Have a go yourself or challenge the computer. Links below!

Terrific Maths investigation using negative numbers today. We had to find the hottest and coldest countries and calculate the differences in average temperatures.

Science Posters - The children have made some great posters explaining how light travels in straight lines and how we see objects.

Here is our Knowledge Organiser for our Science topic Light - ask our learners about their knowledge of Light and see what they can recall!

Welcome to Owl Class.


Mrs Brennan, Miss Neal, Mrs Dickings and Miss Ward would like to welcome you all to our class page.

We hope you managed to enjoy some restful family time over the summer break; it's great to be back. I am delighted to have the privilege of teaching your children in their final year here at Hawthorn Tree. Our journey together in Y6 will be filled with challenges, but it will also be filled with discovery, amazing learning experiences, new roles and responsibilities, growing independence and equally importantly- enjoyment and laughter.


This is the year of reading; challenges have been set and reading will be celebrated throughout the school. Please support your child's reading by hearing them read at least twice a week, we have some fantastic Y6 texts to read this year beginning with Goodnight Mr Tom.


We have had a great couple of days back in the classroom and although things are different, I have been delighted with the children’s attitude to learning and their resilience. A class timetable and homework timetable are attached below. If your child is struggling with homework, they are welcome to speak to Mrs Brennan, Mrs Dickings or Miss Ward BEFORE their homework is due in, this means we can complete the homework together and address any misunderstandings.


If you do have any concerns or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact us (preferably by phone or email) before or after the school day.


Please keep checking in on our class page for important updates and snapshots of our learning.

Stay safe. Thank you.

London Residential 2021


Mrs Brennan and I would like to inform you all about an exiting opportunity for our Year 6 pupils. Next year, we would like to take our Year 6 pupils on a three-day residential to London. 

The three day trip will allow for your child to explore London through World War 2. 


Over the three days, we will visit The Imperial War Museum, where we will explore the causes, course and consequences of World War , hop on board the HMS Belfast to explore what life was like at war on the sea, before discovering the secrets beneath the streets of Westminster in the underground nerve centre of the Churchill War Rooms. 

In addition to our war time adventures, we will also be enjoying a stunning 360-degree, panoramic view of London on the London Eye, before taking in the sights from a whole new perspective with a cruise down the River Thames. 


We also have the opportunity to watch a West End Show (show to be confirmed) before rounding off our trip by visiting Warner Bros. Studios - The Making of Harry Potter. Here, the children will take a spellbinding, behind the scenes exploration of the sets used in the massively successful franchise. 


If you would like more information about this trip, then please find more information and payment schedule via Parent Mail or visit our Newsletter section on the school website.


We hope you can join us!
