Year 6: final frontier

These are the voyages of an intrepid group of children

It's their one year mission to explore new topics

To seek out new life and to learn about new civilisations

To boldly go where no class has gone before!



Welcome back!

I hope you've enjoyed a restful Easter holiday? There's lots to do this term, it's going to be very busy! We're going to  be focused on our SATs exams which begin on Monday 12th May - look out for the SATs Breakfast letter and revision links on this webpage. As well as working hard on these tests we will also be studying the Benin empire in central Africa. In science, we'll be looking at how light travels and how shadows are formed, this will involve lots of practical experiments. Art, based on the Benin culture, will be taught by Miss Hughes, our Art co-ordinator.

Year 6 children will be continue to take part in the wider opportunities music scheme - percussion - with Mr Proctor. This half term, the children will be playing African drums.

As always, there will be a number of jobs and responsibilities for children in year 6 such as collecting snack money or assembly duty. Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday.
