Class 11



"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." 

- Albert Einstein


In Year Six, we...

  • listen and make positive contributions to class discussions
  • try our best and persevere even when we find things challenging
  • take care of one another and work as a team
  • take responsibility for our learning
  • ask questions when thinking critically about what we are learning
  • enjoy reading for pleasure
  • strive to achieve our personal targets and goals


Our classroom is a happy and inviting place where we want our children to feel free to make mistakes in order to help them learn. We strongly believe that a classroom with laughter and smiles is a classroom that learns best and we promote a positive attitude in everything that we do. We want the children to enjoy their final year at Burton Road Primary School and give them memories and experiences that they will treasure forever. We hope that you enjoy seeing all of the fabulous things we have done so far. Thank you for visiting our class page.

Autumn 1 Class Read - 'Holes'

Stanley Yelnats has bad luck (which is all because of his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather).

When Stanley's bad luck unfairly lands him in the juvenile detention centre Camp Green Lake (a very weird place that isn't green and doesn't have a lake), he and his campmates Zero, X-Ray, Armpit, Squid, Magnet and Zigzag are forced to dig holes in order to build character...

But what are they really digging for?
