Autumn Term Update

What a busy first term we have had in Year 6!  In the first half term, our topic was looking at the effects of coastal erosion on the east coast of Yorkshire.  All of the year group went on a field trip to Filey where we were able to see firsthand the effects that erosion has had. As the weather was so beautiful, we spent most of the day on the beach;  had fish and chips sat outside; played cricket and rounders on the beach; created sand sculptures and then finished the day off with an ice-cream.  Much fun was had and the children were a credit to the school!

After the half term break, we took a trip back in time and came face-to-face with a Mayan who spent the day with us.  The children even met a famous king from the Mayan era – King Higgins!

December was a very busy month for us all.  Our Year 6 children visited the festival of cribs at Horbury Methodist Church and we hosted our first Fiver Challenge Christmas Fayre.  This was a tremendous success.  The children planned and prepared everything to sell at the fayre and they raised a whopping £1177.39.  The proceeds from the fayre will be split between school funds, Diabetes UK and Childhood Leukaemia Research.  Many thanks to our parents and carers for the support which you have given towards making this event such a huge success!

The final week of term was busy and all the school walked to St Mary’s Chruch for our annual Christmas Carol Service.  Our Year 6 children helped to support our youngest children in Reception on their first walk to the church.  On the last afternoon, much fun was had by everyone in Year 6 during our Christmas party.  We all thoroughly enjoyed our party!

The Year 6 teachers are Mr Higgins, Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Yarnold. We are supported by Miss Huntington and Mrs Wilson.

Year 6 is the final year at Horbury Primary Academy before the children leave us to go to their chosen high school. During their journey through Year 6, the children will continue to develop their understanding across the school curriculum. However, as well as this, we also place great emphasis on developing confidence and responsibility in our pupils through a wide range of learning experiences, mentoring roles and job responsibilities across the school.

Year 6 Jobs

Throughout the course of Year 6, the children are encouraged to undertake responsibilities around school. This can come in the form of mentoring roles, representative positions and jobs. We aim to rotate job responsibilities every half term so that everyone has the opportunity to experience a job.


There are weekly P.E sessions for our children. Therefore, each child should ensure that they have the appropriate kit for these sessions. The children need to bring their kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. As the weather warms up, there may be opportunities to take part in additional PE sessions.

P.E kits

P.E is a statutory subject and all children are required to take part. If your child is suffering from an injury that prevents them from taking part then please contact the school by telephone or by a note passed to the class teacher. Thank you.

If your child does not bring their kit or brings the wrong kit then they will be issued with a letter which we ask you to sign and return to school. If your child is unable to do P.E please ensure that they have a note to explain why.


Please ensure that if your child requires medication, the school office has been notified and a permission slip has been completed. If your child has an inhaler please ensure that this is passed to the class teacher.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
