Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to our new Year Group page. We are excited to share our learning and experiences with you. So far...we have covered the topics of WWI, WWII, Victorians and Shipwrecks (Titanic). We have had some wonderful WOW experiences: visiting the Duxford Air Museum and re-creating a winter's day by pretending to have snowball fights and sipping delicious hot chocolate - just to name a few. Here are a few comments from students about their learning thus far:


“My favourite part about our Titanic topic was when we listened to a recording of the sailors and passengers talking about the evacuation of the ship sinking.” -- Charley Woollard (Class 6A)


“My favourite part when we learnt about the Titanic was writing news reports and learning all the facts about the mistakes they did on board.” -- Mathilde Tubaut (Class 6A)


We are looking forward to more WOW experiences throughout the summer term as well as our final year 6 production (dates will be confirmed shortly and we will send a letter home as well as an update on the website). We have also worked hard on our Reading, Writing and Maths in Year 6 which will help us through our SATs tests - the Year 6 teachers are so proud of all the Year 6's effort and dedication towards their learning. Below is the week of the SATs tests (more info to follow):


SATs - Monday, May 8th 2017 - Friday, May 12th 2017
