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 important people from history. We began by learning about the life of Walter Tull. Walter Tull was one of the first black footballers and also first black officers to command white men. He overcame adversity to achieve such greatness. He died fighting for this country in WWI. We have been writing about why he should be remembered.


More recently, we have begun writing a biography of the life of Winston Churchill. We were surprised to hear that he was very disobedient at school! We will soon be studying his famous speeches.

Today we will be holding out House Captain elections.

Our new representatives are.......






Addison - Pip Bailey and Obi Anieto
