Spring Bank Primary School

Year 6 Category


The final day of this academic year sees us say many goodbyes at Spring Bank, most notbaly to our Year 6 class! To mark their final day of primary they put on a fantastic assembly for all students, staff and parents of Spring Bank and what a show it was!

It was clear to see that the performance had been well organised and put together by Mrs. Ward and Mr. Thomas and Year 6 had certainly put in huge amounts of time and effort into learning their lines and their songs. It was an extremely entertaining and amusing way to say goodbye. It was an emotional ending with Year 6 saying goodbye – I’m sure they will look back on Spring Bank with fond memories and they will certainly be thought of well!

It was a nice send off for Mr. Brawley and Marcella too who will be leaving us to move on to their next chapters, goodbye and good luck to all of those moving on!IMG_20180725_100350[1] IMG_20180725_091612[1] IMG_20180725_095250[1] IMG_20180725_093632[1]


A big congratulations is in order for Spring Bank’s Year 6 class and their teachers at the end of this week, their SATs week. The class have had a very intense year working hard in preparation for the tests and have had a tough test week to cap it all off. Year 6 must be commended for the way they approached their tests, with a very calm and confident manner and hopefully the hard work will pay off when results come back to them.

To end the week they were treated to a well-deserved trip to Gelato for some celebratory ice cream and will be off to Ingleborough next week for a ‘break’!

Well done to everyone in Year 6 and good luck with your results!IMG_20180518_092751[1]


On Monday, Year Six showed off their amazingly creative and informative pieces of homework based on the natural disasters topic from last term. Examples of work included exploding volcanoes, a tornado diorama (complete with flying cows) and many informative pieces of work covering volcanoes, tsunamis and avalanches, to name but a few.

Great work Year Six!

This half term Year Six have been immersed in their ‘Spirit of Carnival’ topic. This week we were lucky enough to have been joined by carnival costume designer Marina Poppa and we got the opportunity to design, make and wear our own carnival costumes, based on the four elements. In addition to this, Year Six have also displayed their wonderful carnival inspired homework. Here are some photos so you can see some examples of the amazing things they have created.

Our Year 6 football team took part in the EFL ‘Road to Wembley’ Kids Cup organised by Leeds United. In wintry conditions they played against two other schools, coming away with one victory out of four matches. The team represented our school brilliantly and, despite the icy wind and rain, enjoyed themselves thoroughly.




This afternoon Year Six displayed their fantastic 1960s homework. Topics chosen by students included a live Beatles tribute, a ‘Swinging Sixties’ dancing lesson and a Lego constructions of the moon landing and Apollo 11 . All the work was extremely impressive and enjoyed by everyone in the class.

Recently, we welcomed the wonderful ‘Young Shakespeare Company’ for their yearly performance for our Year 5s and 6s. As always the play was a great success, extremely entertaining and was thoroughly enjoyed by all the students and staff who were lucky enough to be able to watch and (as we can see in some of the pictures) even take up some starring roles of their own!

Here are some of the comments from the students:

“I enjoyed every part of it. I want to watch more Shakespeare plays now” – Jayden, Year 6

“I didn’t think I would enjoy watching a Shakespeare play. You changed my mind.” – Abbie, Year 6

“I loved it! The actors made it feel so real!” – Marilyn, Year 6



Last Friday, Year Six visited the Castle Museum in York to take part in a ‘Swinging Sixties’ workshop as part of their topic. Students got to sample the joys of music, dancing and fashion from the era and took part in their very own ‘Space Race’ challenge. We then had a whistle-stop tour of the rest of the incredible exhibitions, including the Victorian street and Dick Turpin’s cell.
