Welcome to Year 6!

 

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term. We are thoroughly excited to be working with your children this year and have many enthralling topics planned for them.

This half term, our learning in English will be centred around Clockwork by Phillip Pullman. In Project we will be learning all about the Windrush. In Maths, we are beginning our learning with looking at division, angles and fractions.  In Science, we will be looking at the heart and the impact that diet and drugs have on this vital organ.  

Please keep referring to our webpage to keep updated with Year 6.
