Dronfield Junior School motto: acheiving whilst making learning fun

Year 6 Work and Activities


Welcome to Year 6!


Wizards, Witches and Wires


Welcome to Hogwarts! Join us on our magical quest as we travel through the wall to platform 9 ¾ and into the world of witchcraft and wizardry as we join the battle against He Who Must Not Be Named. 

Our hook day will bring children into the story of J.K.Rowling’s famous wizard as we create our own chocolate frog collectable cards before watching the Philosopher’s Stone. In our English, we will get creative with our descriptive writing and letters based around the wizarding world. We will be using the films and books as inspiration to draw on for our work as well as to inspire our own imaginations to create some weird and wonderful magical creations. 


Our science lessons are focusing on electricity, and we will look at film props before we design and attempt to create our own using our electrical circuit knowledge. Or topic work also closely focuses around our theme, with children designing their own mythical creatures. We will also be designing our own computer animations based on Harry Potter. Children will stroyboard their own ideas before using their Scratch skills to bring it to life. Maybe we can make a blockbuster instalment of the series! 

Also in this term, children have the opportunity to go on residential trip to France, as well as to Cadbury’s world and Harry Potter Harry studios. We also take part in the DARE programme this term which is delivered in weekly lessons by our DARE officer.


It is an action packed term for the year group. We might need Hermione’s time-turner to fit everything in!


Please come and see us if you have any questions.
