Our PE lessons will be on a Monday and Wednesday - P.E. kit to be worn on both of those days. 

Studs and shin pads will be needed on a Wednesday. 

Autumn Term: Inclusion and Diversity

Year 6 have been thinking about migration and what it might be like to come to an unfamiliar country. We will discuss the importance of being tolerant of different cultures and beliefs to reflect the multicultural world we live in. We will think about how it might feel, the challenges people might face, the reasons people might choose to move to a new country and what they might have left behind.  The texts used to support our learning this half term is The Arrival written by Shaun Tan and Coming to England by Floella Benjamin.  In addition we will also be exploring the story of the Windrush.

Spring Term

Year 6 have been reading Skellig by David Almond. We have been working hard on improving our retrieval and inference skills and we have been using our understanding of some of the chapters to write creatively, predicting what we think will happen next and considering the stories of different characters. We have also used Skellig to study some of the poetry of William Blake and the imagery within this.

We have been linking our Maths, Geography and Art skills through studying coordinates, map skills, translation, reflection, tesselation and symmetry. We have looked at the work of artists like Alex Konahin and Escher and investigated how they have used symmetry, translation and tesselation in their work.
