Welcome to the Year 6 page. Here you will find information on the areas of study within Year 6, events and photographs of our adventures throughout the year.
This term, our topic is A Child’s War.
In our groups, we will be reading Goodnight Mister Tom written by Michelle Magorian. This story takes place during WWII featuring a young evacuee Willie, who travels to Little Weirwold by steam train to live with Mr Tom. The Y6 staff love this book and are sure the children will feel the same way too.
Mrs Round and Mr Oliver’s group will also read Friend or Foe written by Michael Morpurgo. This book also takes place during the war where two evacuees, David and Tucky feel like their the war is a long way from their new life in the countryside.
In science, we will be looking at electricity and circuits. Children will recognise that light travels in straight lines and will be able to explain why shadows have the same shape as the object that casts them.
In Design Technology, children will have the opportunity to bake carrot cookies using an authentic wartime recipe and food that was rationed during the war. We are hoping to do this without setting any fire alarms off!
