Welcome to Year 6!
Our first topic this year is the World Wars and this will take us through to Christmas. We will start this topic a couple of years early in 1912 by looking at the Titanic before focusing on key aspects of the World Wars (life in the trenches; the role of women and the suffragette movement; the evacuation of World War 2; and the holocaust)
For reading we will be looking at Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo, which is set during the First World War.
Thank you to everyone who has produced something for our display relating to the World Wars. A few examples are shown below.
Please bring PE kit for Scotty's heroes every Thursday.
Homework is to be brought in every Friday.
Mr Bennett, Miss Darnowska and Mrs Remy.
Year 6 enjoyed a trip to the brand new library in Doncaster. We were given a tour of the art gallery before moving onto the Museum where we learnt about the history of Doncaster. We particularly enjoyed the KOYLI section, which linked to our topic on the World Wars. We also had a chance to see the trains, which were built in Doncaster. Finally, we had a tour of the children's library, where we listened to some poetry and had a chance to explore the books.
Our first mini project will focus on the Titanic. To contribute to this topic children produced job adverts for people needed for the Titanic, from builders to build the ship to staff needed for the first voyage.
In Science, our new topic is light, where we have been investigating how light enables us to see. We have looked at how light travels in straight lines, as well as how light is reflected when we made periscopes.
Each week, Oak National Academy are celebrating the work of one author virtually. You will be able to read one of their books online, learn more about the author and complete activities relating to that book.
