Welcome to Xylophones!

Welcome to Xylophone Class. We are 32 brilliant Year 6 children who love to learn! We are determined, resilient and creative thinkers, always ready for a challenge.

In our classroom you'll find our teacher, Mrs. Forder and our amazing helpers: Mrs. Ng and Miss Iddon. We enjoy PE and ICT with Mrs. Higson on a Wednesday afternoon too!

Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

Spellings are set on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Children should also complete times tables practice using Times Table Rockstars and reading homework at least 3 times a week.

Our motto is 'Be The Best' and we aim to always set a good example to others with our behaviour and learning.

We Are Detectives

Take a look at our Curriculum Knowledge Organiser for this half term's theme!



Mental Elf

To support the charity, Lancashire Minds, we took part in an 'elf danceathon'. Lancashire Minds are fundraising by virtually travelling from Lancashire to Lapland.

Autumn Term 2

Food Glorious Food


Where our food comes from and the miles it takes to get here is the focus of this half term. We will also be looking at fair trade and ways in which we can support this. 



What a fantastic morning we had playing Quidditch!

Remembrance Week

Remembrance week at TCP is always very special. This year, the theme was Hidden Heroes and UKS2 looked at the codebreakers of Bletchley Park focusing of the work of Alan Turing. To help us to learn abut what he achieved, we made our own 'Enigma' machines, writing ciphers and codes for each other to crack. We wrote letters to his niece, Inagh Payne, to thank his for everything that he did to end WWII. Our work with the No Outsiders programme support our work on LGBT history and we wrote some powerful persuasive speeches imploring the government to pardon Turning for his criminal conviction. Finally, we created some lovely art work using watercolours.


Autumn Term 1

A Kingdom United


This half term we are learning all about the country in which we live. What does UK mean? What's the difference between the UK and Great Britain? We will also travel back in time to the time of the Anglo Saxons to find out about life in England over 1000 years ago with a little help from Horrible Histories!
