Welcome to the Year 6 Homepage
Welcome to the Spring Term!
Beyond the Battle lines
We would like to welcome you back once again to school on the 8th March! We unfortunately still find ourselves in strange and uncertain times at the moment but we can assure you we have lots of things in place to keep us all safe upon our return to school.
During the first few weeks back, we will settle back into our routines and recap on certain aspects of the curriculum that are deemed necessary to allow for progress in the current year. We will continue with out focus on activities that have a positive affect on our well-being and ensure that we are all both happy and ready to learn each day. We will continue with our Spring term topic entitled 'Beyond the Battle lines' where we will learn all about World war 2 in History; plan, design and make ration recipes food and Anderson shelters in D&T, learn about the work of a famous war time artist in Art, investigate the countries involved in WW2 and find out about the life and completing a science unit of work on electricity. Whilst E-safety will continue to be our priority in ICT, we will also be using our ICT to support our earning in other subjects. We will be reading 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' in our Active Read sessions.
