Year 6 go back in time...

User Rating:  / 0

This week we were excited to begin our new tppic: World War II. Our first lesson took us back in time to 1939 when an announcement was made that a war had begun. We were overwhelmed by the sound of the air raid siren and discussed how children would have felt.

We are looking forward to learning more about how the war affected the nation.

Year 6 update

User Rating:  / 0
The children of year 6 have been busy carrying out tests in Reading, Writing and Mathematics this week. They have worked extremely hard and we are really proud of the maturity and focus they have shown.

We have also been continuing with our topic work about 'The Weird World of Animals.' 6LM have been listening to Sain Saen's Animal Carnival and Prokiev's Peter and the Wolf. Meanwhile, 6LC have been learning how and why animals migrate and completing thieir class collage for the topic wall.

This week has been National Book Week. Year 6 celebrated this by sharing and learning about each other's favourite authors such as Roald Dahl. Sara regaled us with an amazing anecdote that Dahl only ever wrote in his shed on yellow paper!

We are very much looking forward to our cinema trip next week.

In Literacy we have been gathering facts about penguins using a variety of sources. We have collected a range of fascinating facts.

We are looking forward to learning more and writing our non-chronological reports.


Year 6 learn about Henri Rousseau

User Rating:  / 0

This week Year 6 have been learning about the artist Henri Julien Rousseau.




We have created a factfile about him identifying key events from his life. We couldn't believe, that despite being such a great artist, he had never had an art lesson.

We then created a pallet of green tones using paint. These were used to create our own Rousseau inspired paintings.
