Aim High, Reach for the Sky

Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Larimar!


We are really enjoying our place at the top of the school as Year 6 pupils and we are aiming to set a great example to all of the children in the year groups below.

As Y6 pupils, we have been given lots of extra responsibilities in this, our most important year at Mountfields Lodge Primary. Alongside this, we are preparing for our SATs, so it’s going to be a very busy and fun time for us all! We have got plenty of exciting learning opportunities ahead of us and we will try to post some of our experiences throughout each half term.

So keep visiting our class page!

Our new class teacher is Mr Evans and you are always welcome to pop in and have a chat with him, especially if there is anything you are concerned about or just have a few questions.

‘The main aim in Larimar is to make Y6 really a rewarding, hardworking and engaging year for the children and prepare them, as well as we possibly can for their transition in to Y7, as they continue on their learning journey.’



Welcome back Larimar  after your Easter holidays. I hope you are all refreshed and raring to go!

We have an exciting half term a head planned for you to enjoy.

  • Our new EOW topic is called the ‘ King in the carpark’ and is all about King Richard 111 and the Battle of Bosworth. There is a field trip Bosworth Battlefield too!
  • As part of the topic, there will plenty of art, design technology, science  and computing activities. Lessons will include:   how to make a medieval catapult and trebuchet, design your own coat of arms and learn all about forces related to the trebuchet.
  • A day visit has also been arranged to go to the ‘Warning Zone’ which is all about how to keep children safe in different situations!
  • We will also be learning about Macbeth –one of Shakespear’s plays.
  • PE will cover tennis skills and learning our Sports Education game ready for the end of year Sports Day.Please make sure that you have the appropriate PE kit in school each week.
  • Homework arrangements remain unchanged.
  • Finally, the last preparations for your SATS will resume. You are nearly there now and have all worked incredibly hard to reach this point!


Just a few reminders:

We have PE every Tuesday and Friday; please make sure you have your PE Kit (and no earrings please).

Our Homework in Y6 is always issued on a Thursday and the work will be an extension of the current learning objectives being taught.
