Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back after what we hope has been a relaxing and enjoyable summer holiday! 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 Project and English will be centred around World War 2. In English and guided reading, we will be focusing on a captivating text called 'Goodnight Mr Tom'. In Maths, we are beginning our learning with looking at numbers and understanding the value of numbers up to 10,000,000. In Science, we are studying the unit of 'Inheritance and Evolution'.
Please keep referring to our webpage to keep updated with Year 6.
