Welcome to our Year Six page!
Our History topic will begin with us using the book Street Child as a starting point for looking at how the lives of children have changed since Victorian times.
We will consider working and living conditions, comparing and contrasting the lives of poor and wealthy children.
In Geography we will be finding out how Sedgefield has changed since the 19th Century.

This term we are using Street Child by Berlie Doherty as our inspiration for English lessons. We will be reading the text and examining the work in detail.
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.
Robinwood was an amazing experience for both children and staff. The children were split into three groups and worked well within their groups to solve problems and to encourage each other to have a go at some new experiences.
As part of our science work on the circulation system, the class dissected pigs hearts to examine the chambers and the arteries.
The work was messy but fun!!!
Sedgefield Book Ends
We were invited to meet an author and former Northern Echo editor (Peter Barron), as part of the Sedgefield Book Ends Festival.
The children asked and answered a wide range of questions about his book Snowdrop the Spike Shuffler.
