This half term in Year 6 we will be continuing our WW1 topic and using this to inspire letter and poetry writing in English. We will also be completing our class novel Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo.
The children will be continuing to focus on the four operations in maths, we will be moving on to short and long division before we start our work on fractions.
Your teacher is Mr Paton.

We have started this half term with a visit by Sharon from Verd De Gris, taking part in the 5000 miles project. The children have listened to first-hand accounts from two boys who walked from a small village in Afghanistan to the U.K (8, 800, 000 steps in total). This story was used to inspire various creative activities surrounding the theme of hope and tolerance – group art work, stream of consciousness writing tasks and also learning a song which the children will perform at Square Chapel.
Our Year 6 residential was a huge success – we were GLAMPING!
We loved our visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and one of the pupils noted that some of the art on display in the Longside Gallery was so simple that it inspired him to do more in school!
Proud, tired and elated we arrived back at school, only to find we had won SAM for the week as our attendance was the best in school!
