Year 6 2018 - 2019

 

We are very pleased to announce that our spring topic is Friend Or Foe? which will involve children learning about life on the Home Front during World War II, through a variety of curriculum subjects.  

The children had a fantastic and enthusiastic start to their topic! After gathering the children in the hall to hear our Prime-minister, Neville Chamberlain, deliver the grave news that Britain was at war with Germany, they took part in themed maths activities; (Enigma: Codebreakers) with Mr Armstrong, drama with Ms. Walsh and music activities which culminated in a performance of period songs with Mrs Davies. The children looked authentic in their evacuee costumes and it was clear that many children had been talking to their families about the topic as they were able to talk with pride about their relatives and share memories.

 

                                                                      

In English, we have started to read, ‘War Boy: A Country Childhood’ by Michael Foreman which we will use as inspiration for writing in different styles i.e. letters, diaries, information texts and stories. Children will draft, edit and redraft their work before publishing. The books will also help them further their understanding of grammar and punctuation and provide them with opportunities to use different sentence types.

                                                                      

                                                                        

Bring Your Parents to School

On Friday 2nd February, children brought their parents into school to take part in the NSPCC's annual Number Day. In 'Searchlight Triangles', parents were able to see how their children learnt maths through a contextualised lesson which allowed them to use calculation, problem-solving and reasoning skills to consolidate their recent work on area of traingles and complex shapes.
