Year 6 Autumn Term 1
A predominantly History based topic.
Are you listening boy? What is 27 plus 45? Come on – faster now, we haven’t got all day!
Children will be finding out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. They will be discovering a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo.
To make this topic even more exciting and engaging, children will be visiting ‘Beamish’ on Thursday 8th September 2016. Here they will experience life in a Victorian classroom and develop a deeper understanding of life as a child in the Victorian era.
Year 6 had an amazing time at Beamish and had the opportunity to experience what Victorian schools were like.

Year 6 Autumn Term 2
A predominantly Science based topic.
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands … vast wilds, hostile territories, incredible beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert; magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar or an arctic fox – hunting rodents and swift as the wind!
Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco systems and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.
So wrap up well, everyone, and settle by the fire. You are ready for a polar adventure!
Such incredible creative homework to launch this exciting project.
Well done Y6.
Learning more during our our of code with Mr Jackson.

Year 6 went all out to be bright – raising awareness of the ‘Be bright – Be seen – Be safe’ campaign.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Y6 team.
