Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

It’s the start of another year and we have all settled into the new routines really well.  There are a lot of exciting topics to look forward to this term, including writing jungle adventures based on ‘Running Wild’ by Michael Morpurgo, becoming i-safety experts in ICT, making fossils in science and researching Tsunami’s and other natural disasters as part of our geography topic.

We enjoyed celebrating the birthday of Roald Dahl on the 13th September. We met Willy Wonka and invented our own sweets / chocolates (after tasting some real ones). We pitched our ideas to Willy Wonka to see who he would employ!

Don’t forget our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday – please have your P.E. kit in school.

Homework (including spellings) will be given out on Monday and collected in and tested on Friday.

Please keep coming back to have a look at the photos of all the exciting things that year 6 have been up to.

Autumn 1

Michael Churm the Paralympian came into school and put the year 6’s through their paces.

Willy Wonka visited Year 6 on Roald Dahl Day.  We designed a new style of sweet and pitched our ideas to see who he would employ in his factory.



In Art we practised sketching  animals that are significant in ‘Running Wild’ our class novel by Michael Morpurgo.
