Year 6

On Wednesday 24th January, Year 6 are fortunate to be able to view the play about Bill and Lil two local Burton on Trent war heroes, which is on at The Brewhouse on Wednesday 23rd January (evening). The attached images are of Stuart Ash who plays William Coltman VC and Phoebe Indigo Cresswell who plays Lil Thomas.

Welcome back Year 6! This half term (Spring 1) in English, the children shall be writing about Charles Darwin, producing a biography about his life. Each maths group will continue to work through the Year 6 curriculum, continuing to secure their knowledge in the four operations.  Applying their skills across both arithmetic and reasoning. In Science they will be learning about Electricty and how electrical circuits work. Last term all the children worked really hard with their assessments and made great progress. The year 6 team are looking forward to yet again another exciting half term with the children as they continue to work hard and impress us everyday. Keep checking back to see what your child has been getting up to in their lessons... 



20.12.2018 Just to say a BIG thank you to all parents and carers for their support this half term. The Year 6 children have worked incredibly hard this half term and it has not gone unnoticed. The Year 6 Team would like to wish all families a Merry Christmas and are very much looking forward to the New Year. 

10.12.18 A big well done to all of Year 6 last week during their assessment week. There was resilience, determination and perseverance shown by all. Well done again Year 6, you are all working really hard. Your teachers are VERY proud of you! 

Autumn Term 2 

Welcome back Year 6! What a busy Autumn Term 1 we all had. All of the children worked their socks off and made lots of progress - making all of their teachers very proud! This half term we are looking forward to having just as much fun. 

In Reading we will continue to look at a range of text types exploring different types of questions linked to the text. In Maths each group will have a slightly different focus depending on the needs of the children. Across writing the children will be writing a balanced argument and a persuasive letter about whether or not graffiti is art or vandalism.

As well as all of their hard work that the children are going to be taking part in we are also really looking forward to going to the Pantomime - oh no we're not, oh yes we are frown...

Also as year 6 enjoying taking part in the World War Workshop so much he will be returning to school to help celebrate the 100 year anniversary. 

The Piano - Amazing Short

Our next genre of writing will be a short narrative based on the short animation of The Piano by Aidan Gibbons. So far the children are really engaged with the short film and have been looking at figurative language and inference.
