Welcome to the Year 6 webpage.
Hello and welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 teachers this year are Mrs Simpson, Miss Goodman, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Taylor.
We are supported in class by Mrs Foord.
Welcome to Term 2!
We hope you've had a fun and relaxing half term break and are feeling refreshed ready for the term ahead!
We will be continuing our History topic on WW1, starting with a visit from Jeremy Banning, an expert who will tell us about life for soldiers in the trenches. Local Historian Clive Burlton will also be visiting to talk about how WW1 changed the area where we live. This will be followed by a walk to look for clues to these changes on Monday 18th November.
Our learning will be showcased in a special WW1 museum on the afternoon of Tuesday 3rd December, where children will display their homework projects. Parents and carers are invited to come along, so please put the date in your diaries!
In English, we are finding out about the incredible journey of Shackleton to the Antarctic and our Geography work will focus on finding out more about the continent. In Science, we are exploring the circulation system and staying healthy, and in DT we will be designing and making our own energy foods!
As children become increasingly independent in preparation for Year 7, we will be going on our Lifeskills trip on 29 November, a great opportunity to find out about how to stay safe.
Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school all week as we will expect them to get changed for each PE lesson.
If there is anything you would like to discuss or if you have any expertise which you would like to share, please do contact your child's class teacher. We look forward to a busy and exciting term!
