Year 6

Welcome to Class 6!

Welcome to Class 6 and the start of a brand new school year. The children have been settling in well and working hard this week. We have started our topic 'Review Britain' all about WWII including how it began and its impact after it finished. Keep an eye out for more information about what we have been up to. Next week, we begin our class novel 'The Machine Gunners'. Here is the copy we have if any of you would like to get your own copy for home.

 

This week we have been learning about World War 1 and some significant people from the time. We have researched and written about Walter Tull, who was one of the first black professional footballers and the first black officer to lead white men. What an inspirational man! It has been fascinating to learn how his legacy still has an impact today.

Well done to everyone who put themselves forward to be House Captains. You all did an amazing job and made me every proud.

 He are the new House Captains for this year:

Rutter: Emiley and Alfie

Stevenson: Daisy and Sofia

Addison: Caleb and Sophie

Look out for more roles and responsibilities that will be handed out today.....

We are excited to announce that we have new roles for all the children in Class 6. We look forward to the children becoming role models around school for the younger children.

We have:

Play Leaders

Eco Committee members

Reading Buddies

Gardeners

Worship Team members

Lunchtime Helpers

In History, we have been learning about why an how World War Two started. We have also been looking at artefacts and different sources of information.

This week we have been learning all about evacuation and the three waves that happened during the war. We have enjoyed the drama sessions around this subject and imagining what it would have been like for children, so young, to have been sent away from home. We have also been watching (and some of us have been reading) Goodnight Mr Tom.

We have got lots of fiction books and non fiction books to complement our topic now. Some of the fiction books the children have the chance to reads are:

Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll

Once by Morris Gleitzman

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo

Hero on a bicycle by Shirley Hughes

Please encourage your children to read every day - it really helps.

 

This week has also seen the first trials for our football team. The children are really keen to play football against other schools. We are trying to find opportunities for them to do so as quickly as possible. Therefore, we have started trying to select a team. The children had great fun and even Mr Restall got his trainers on!

 

Dance, dance and more dance! We have had an excellent time learning the dances for our Christmas performance of 'A Christmas Carol'. If you haven't seen it, Jim Carrey's version is on Disney Plus and there are several different versions you can read. It is going to be lots of fun.
