Welcome to our Year Six page!
During the Spring Term we are learning about what life was like for Victorian children.
We are investigating the dangerous and hard jobs that children from as young as 4 had to do and the terrible conditions that they worked in. We will be looking at the laws that were introduced to protect children and how school life was much different to that of today.
Feel free to ask any Year 6 what they have been learning.
This term we are investigating the topic of Light. We will be carrying out many investigations to see how light reflects, refracts, can be split using a prism and how shadows can be used for entertainment.

To further enhance our understanding the world of Victorian children we will be reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty. The book tells the story of Jim Jarvis, who was a real person, as he becomes an orphan and has to struggle to survive whilst working in terrible conditions before he is taken in by Dr Barnardo.
This story will help develop our ability to write from different perspectives, empathise with characters as well as give us the opportunity to express our creativity through drama.
Below is this term's weekly spelling lists.
Last year's Year 6 worked together to create this presentation on keeping safe on the internet. They decided on what they felt was important to share with the younger children in school and researched all of the facts. We hope you find it informative.
Year 6 are always working hard to achieve their personal targets for English and Maths.
One of their targets is to improve their weekly Maths Challenge results? Ask a Year 6 how they are getting on.
This term we will be focusing on our basketball skills as well as learning how to perform The Hakka - made famous by the New Zealend All Blacks Rugby Union team.
Here is a video from last term's dance project - This is me from the Greatest Showman.
