Welcome to Year 6


 Article 28 Every child has the right to an education

Today was sports day at school. All the children were put into different country themed teams and took part in different sporting activities. There were some tricky activities, like an egg and spoon race, an obstacle course and a sprinting race. The children worked well in their teams and had lots of fun. Congratulations to the winning team, Switzerland! 


On Friday 12th July Year 6 boarded the train at Manchester Piccadilly for their end of year trip down to London. We got to take in many of the sights. Including a very special visit to Downing Street, where we were able to take pictures in front of the world famous black door. We carried on to Buckingham Palace enjoying ice cream on the way, and finished up our day shopping for a souvenir to remember this fantastic trip. We had such an amazing time! 

 The Big Sing 

All month, Year 6 have been learning some classic country songs. Classics by country legends such as Taylor Swift, Billy Ray Cyrus, Rascal Flatts and Dolly Parton. On Friday 28th June, Year 6 took the tram to The Bridge Water Hall to listen and sing along to a live country band. The hall was full of dancing and singing. Year 6 had an amazing time!

Fire and Water Safety Talk

On Friday 21st June our local fire service came into Year 6, to give a talk on water safety and the dangers of wildfires. It was very informative, teaching us the best ways to stay alive in dangerous waters with their slogan ‘Float to Live’. The firefighters then went on to tell us all the ways to prevent a wildfire and what to do if we see one. Before they left, they told us about the app ‘What Three Words’. This app helps us locate our exact location when talking to an operator.

Nell Jones Award

The Nell Jones award was set up in her memory and is awarded to children who have worked hard

and made great progress in reading.

Our lovely Eman in year 6 was lucky enough to receive this award for all her hard work.

She was invited with her parents to the Victoria and Albert Hotel in Manchester to have a special lunch with other winners and recieve her award.

We are all very proud of her.

Year 6 Leavers Service

On Monday 17th June, year 6 went to Manchester Cathedral to take part in the leavers service.

Lots of other schools around Manchester came together with their year 6 pupils to celebrate all the children's achievements and wish them well on their journey to High School.

Before the children attended they had to make a flag that represented the school and also

write a prayer for a class of year 5 children.

These prayers were exchanged in the Cathedral with another school. 

Each school had made a chain of prayers which will be displayed through the Cathedral.

Article 14: Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and practice their religion.


St Augustine's Got Talent 

On Friday 14th June, St Augustine's held their annual talent show. We have many talented children in school. But sadly, only three acts per class went through to the final talent show. Everyone was blown away by the many different acts, and it was a very hard decision who to vote for. Year 6's three acts were amazing. With Dominion taking second place, with his wonderful piano skills, and the girls' dance troop winning first place with their flawless dance routine. You can see them below. Well done to everyone who took part. We think you are all winners!


The children in year 6 have been lucky enough to take part in a BMX session at Platt Fields for a session each Thursday for the next 5 weeks. 

The children will learn how to ride a bike confidently and safely.

Some of the children were a little nervous, but everyone had a good try and really enjoyed themselves.

They are looking forward to improving their skills and being able to ride on the BMX track.

Article 15: Every child has the right to meet with other children and join groups and organisations.

Article 31: Children have the right to rest and play and take part in a range of activities.

Cricket Engagement Day 

As part of cricket engagement day, Year 6 had the opportunity to take part in a short session.

We did a quick warm up and then took part in a batting and fielding game.

We had a lot of fun and we really appreciate having the coach come to teach us!

Skateboarding Club

Along with Year 5, some of our Year 6's have joined the skateboarding club which happens after school on a Friday. During the sessions, they are learning all about the safety equipment that skateboarders use, the different parts of the skateboard and then getting the opportunity to try some new skills and tricks. 

Please have a look at the pictures and videos below to see how they are getting on.

 Drawing With Rob Experience 


Along with Year 5, we have had the brilliant opportunity to meet Rob Biddulph. Rob is an author and illustrator who has produced lots of creative books for children. He put together a series of videos during lockdown on how to draw certain characters.

We learnt how he became an author and illustrator, we got the chance to take part in an interactive drawing with him, and then get a sneak peek of his new book.

This was an amazing experience and we appreciate receiving a signed copy of his art work!   Honeypot

On Monday 25th March, some year 4,5 and 6 children went on a  4 day residential to the

Honeypot House in Pen Y Bryn Wales.

The residential is designed to support children with self esteem, confidence and build their confidence whilst having fun. The children took part in lots of different activities where they learnt new coping strategies and worked on problem solving and built up their independence. 

The children had great fun making worry monsters, jolly jars, self portraits, pizza's and much more. They also went on a fantastic trip to the British Iron Works where they saw lots of fantastic sculptures and went on an extinction trail. Whilst at the house they got to play on the outdoor equipment like bikes, go karts and trampolines. They even got to go swimming in the Honeypot's swimming pool. 

All the children had a fantastic time and came away with lots of happy memories. 

Article 31: Children have the right to rest and play and take part in a range of activities.

A big congratulations to Success, Bella, Rasty, Farooq, Natalia and Mohammed who earned a treat with Ms Shah for their great behaviour in school.

These 6 children went out for the afternoon with Ms Shah to take part in a table tennis event.

Well done!! 


Year 6 visit Chester Zoo!

We had the amazing opportunity to visit Chester Zoo for the whole day before half term. We had the chance to see the orangutans, exotic birds, tigers, penguins, bats and some crocodiles. Although it was very wet and cold, this did not dampen our experience and Year 6 were exceptional throughout! 

Please enjoy looking through our pictures and videos below. 


Get Away 'N' Get Safe

During Stay Safe week, we have had three sessions with James from GANGS (Get Away 'N' Get Safe) prevention programme. During the sessions, we have learned about the dangers of being involved in gangs, and therefore, how we can make sure we can stay safe. 

We really appreciate having James in with us and teaching us the importance of staying safe. 

Taste It then Guess It Challenge 

Miss Barr gave Year 6 a blind food tasting challenge. 

In teams, the children had to taste a variety of different foods, whilst being blindfolded, and then describe what they have tasted to their team. 

Year 6 had to consider what it tasted like, what it smelt like and how did it feel before trying to describe it.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon!

Premier League Primary Stars Football Tournament

Year 6 have had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Premier League Primary Stars tournament at Manchester City academy stadium at the start of the New Year. 8 of the boys and 8 of the girls have competed in the tournament and both teams have successfully made it through to the finals of the tournament. Both teams have made us very proud with not only how they have played but their sportsmanship as well.

Well done Year 6 and good luck for the finals!!

Have A Go Event

On Friday 19th January, Year 6 were invited to the Manchester Youth Zone to attend an event all about climate change. During the event, we learned all about different types of renewable energy, how we can reuse and recycle different materials to help the environment and how we can grow our own food. 

We want to thank all the volunteers, staff and experts who looked after us for the day and helped us to understand the impact that we can have on our planet.
