Class 6U 2017 - 2018

Miss Upton

Year 6 Teacher

Welcome to 6U

HLTA - Miss Davis

Welcome to 6U. Please use our website to find out all about what we will be learning throughout this year, keep up-to-date with upcoming events, find useful documentation linked to our curriculum (see file downloads at the end of this page) and much more. You can also view our gallery and Blog items which will show you just how much fun we have had learning throughout this year!

In Year 6 this half term, our theme is 'The Great War' and will follow on from our work on the Christmas Truces In December. Our lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of History, DT, ICT, Science and some Literacy lessons will be linked together to create a more broad experience. Planned activities include: designing and baking a cake or biscuit for soldiers on the frontline, writing our stories, letter and diary entries based upon real historical events and looking in depth at jobs, key events and the impact of war (more detailed information can be found in the downloads area below titled: 'Spring Term Curriculum Outline'). It would be fantastic if you could encourage your child to collect material from home - or from the library - to support this.
