Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


Our first topic this year is The World Wars and this will take us through to Christmas. In this topic we will be looking at life in the trenches and the Christmas Truce; the Suffragette movement; poetry from the First World War; the evacuation of the Second World War; and much more. For reading we will be looking at Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo, which is set during the First World War.

Important Announcements

PE is on a Tuesday, but we advise you to bring it in on a Monday as we may do PE more than once a week. 

Homework is due in every Friday

Make sure you read at least 3 times a week and practise your times tables on TT Rockstars! Doing both of these will help contribute to your child's learning as we prepare for SATS.

Come and explore our classroom! 

Our classroom immerses us in our topic and we'd love for you to explore all our work and our fantastic projects that all of you have made at home!

As we started the second half term, Year 6 held a topic day about the evacuation of children during the Second World War. Children dressed up as evacuated children and were given a letter telling them they would be evacuated and where to. Children then worked together to find out all about the place they were evacuated and prepare a presentation to show the whole class.
Remembrance Day is an important part of our World War topic. Even though we spent it in isolation, children created their own art based on the design of the poppy. We also shared a 2 minute silence over Microsoft Team before exploring the causes that lead to the end of the war. 
For Anti-Bullying week Year 6 looked at the issues surrounding Cyber Bullying and during our time in self isolation we created posters promoting the message of anti-bullying.

Don't forget our 'This Is Me' statements. At St Francis these statements are the type of learners we want our students to be.

This Is Me

I am happy.

I am ambitious.

I am confident.

I am a good citizen.

I can be anything.

I try new things.

I am resilient.

I am curious.
