Class 12



"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.

Spring Term Class Read - The Ickabog

The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheese mongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. 
Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, we’re home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own. 
Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two brave children into an adventure they didn’t ask for and never expected? 
Step into the pages of this book and discover a brilliantly original fairy tale from one of the world’s greatest storytellers. Packed with larger than life characters, extraordinary events, and an unforgettable message about the power of hope and friendship, this is a story that readers young and old will want to return to, again and again.

Autumn 2 Class Read

Welcome to Crater Lake!


The Year Six school trip where your first day just might be your last...


Maybe it's the bloodstained man who tries to stop the coach. Maybe it's the absence of welcoming staff, but something is definitely not right at Crater Lake Activity Centre.


Then, at night, things get much, much stranger... Lance and his friends, Chets, Katja, Big Mak and Adrianne find themselves in a fight for survival and must work together to defeat a swarm of enemies.


But whatever happens they must never, ever, fall alseep!

Mining Homework

The children were challenged with finding out about their family’s history as part of our local history topic on Mining in Barnsley. The children brought in many different artefacts from their grandparents, neighbours and family. It is so great to see the children so engaged with their learning and local history topic. 

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?
