We are trying very hard with our handwriting in preparation for SATs and we are taking great care in our exercise books

so that Mrs. Lynch is proud of us.

In Literacy Year 6 will be working on The War Horse, written by Michael Morpurgo. Throughout the Autumn Term, the story is used as a stimulus for literacy lessons.  Children will be writing newspapers, autobiographies, biographies, letters home etc.  During the Spring Term, children will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom and in the final term of Year six, they will read Kensuke’s Kingdom. 

In addition to all this, Year 6 will also have a two week creative curriculum unit following up our magnificent whole school trip to see the lion king! This will involve finding out about political as well as everyday life in a contrasting locality as well as working with artists making African jewellery! HAKUNA MATATA!
