Mrs Macdonald

Deputy Headteacher


Wycoller is the year six class.  We are taught by Mrs Macdonald. Mrs Blades, Miss Amber and Mrs Kinsella. 

Key Information

PE: This takes place on Monday and Wednesday and is led by Mr Bowie or Mrs Macdonald.  Please ensure you wear your PE kit on these days.

Reading: Every child will read to an adult on a regular basis. Children can change books as soon as they have read them; they just need to ask.   If they have read at home and their reading record book is signed, they will receive a new book. 

Library: Our library session takes place on Wednesdays. Please make sure your child brings their book on that day if they want to change it.

Making blood in science.

In science, we are learning about the circulation system. As part of our learning, we created blood to help us to understand what it contains. See our gallery at the bottom of the page for more photos.

All year six had an amazing time at Whitehough Camp School. The behaviour of the children was exemplary and we are very proud of them.  Select the gallery at the foot of the page to see more photographs.


The Islamic Civilisation

Year six have been learning about the Islamic Civilisation. We studied a range of artefacts.  With a partner, we discussed what we thought the artefact was and asked questions.  Can you work out what they may have been used for?

Spring Dance Company

Year six have taken part in a dance session with the Spring Dance Company.  We performed a contemporary dance which showed the story of the Good Samaritan.  Every child chose to work with a partner who they would not usually work with. It was briliant and we all put a hundred percent in.

Young Leader's Award

This year, our year six children will be taking part in the Key Stage 2 Young Leaders Award. We’re really excited to be involved in this programme which has been designed and written by the Archbishop of York Youth Trust. 

The Young Leaders Award aims to equip young people to ‘be the change they want to see’ in their local communities, and through a number of interactive lessons and practical challenges our pupils will be involved in serving their community and making a difference.

We will be starting the programme during the Spring Term  and look forward to all that our pupils will learn and achieve. There may be opportunities for parents and family members to get involved in the community action projects that will take place later in the year, and we will be in touch with more details nearer the time.  Pupils will also take part in small challenges at home to help their family or neighbours.  We ask that you ensure that you provide any relevant supervision for these challenges.   See the link below to find examples of the challenges:

At the end of the award each student will receive a certificate and we will host an awards ceremony. We will let you know more about this nearer the time.  If you want to read a little more about this, select the ilink below:
