Year 6: Coral Magenta

Welcome back to Year 6 and the final half term of the year.  We hope everyone had a relaxing break.


This half term the Year 6 pupils are going to be focusing on learning through the Power of Reading text 'The Last Wild'.  The pupils will learn about how humans and nature can learn to live together in Harmony.  Therefore the pupils will write engaging stories, non-chronological reports as well as poems which they will have fun creating.


In Numeracy, the pupils will start the half term by costing the price of a party to meet set requirements but within a given budget.  They will work in groups to ensure they spend the money wisely and calculate offers and deals.  Following this, the pupils will learn about shape, space and measure.  They will explore the rotation of different shapes and use these to make patterns.


In science, the pupils will learn about light.  They will understand the function of the eye as well as different sources of light.  They will design circuits and carry out fair tests to ensure they accurately are able to light a bulb.  Through humanities lessons, the pupils will learn about  dystopian futures. They will learn about the impact humans could have on the future of our world, as well as design and consider interventions which may influence our planet in years to come, such as flying cars.





We achieve great academic success at Edward Pauling Primary School, whether that is measured by the 11+, Common Entrance results or SATs. Perhaps the most important academic measure of all is that pupils on average make greater progress at Edward Pauling Primary School. We put all of this down to our focus on the individual, the excellence of our teachers, the breadth of our curriculum, the high standards we set, and the skills with which we equip our pupils so that they can tackle exams with clarity, confidence and intelligence.

As a school we understand the decisions that parents face as their children head into years 5 and 6. Our staff are always on hand to offer support and advice so that every pupil makes a smooth and successful transition to secondary school.


Our Year 6 pupils transfer secondary schools now include :

Upton Court Grammar School

Wallington County Grammar School

Independent Schools

Tiffin School

St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School


During our residential trip, some Year 6 pupils enjoyed a day out bowling, eating lunch at Pizza Hut and watching the movie, Sing.

We've just packed our bags and cleaned our rooms. Only a few more activities before we hit the road for home.

What a wonderful final night we've had around the campfire. We had hot chocolate, marshmallows, sing songs and even a birthday celebration.

Today, all pupils took part in problem solving challenges and some even overcame some of their fear of heights on the giant swing and zip line. Well done to all!

We've had another very eventful start to our day, with loads of problem solving, team challenges and wilderness survival. We can't believe it's nearly time to go home already!

Year 6 showed some sharp moves on the dance floor tonight. The disco was excellent fun!

After a morning and early afternoon of more fun packed activities, we tucked into a delicious lunch. We have a few more exciting activities to keep us busy before our disco this evening.

After a nutritious breakfast, we're fuelled and ready for the day ahead.

Volley Ball, Laser Tag, Abseiling and sensory trails: Tuesday has been a blast! Bring on the next challenge.

It's been a busy day so far. Already we've completed problem solving activities, obstacle courses and laser tag sessions, and all before lunch!

Year 6 arrived excited and ready to go! We've already tackled the Blind Folded Challenge and Jacob's Ladder. Bring on tomorrow!

Year 6 investigated the evolution of plants and created Plant Fact Files.

We have created posters presenting Darwin's life, The Theory of Evolution and Darwin's Tree of Life.
