Welcome to year 6 - and Oak class!
Our topic to kick start the year is World War Two, which will include an exciting camping trip down to the very tip of Cornwall - Porthcurno! As well as this residential, we will be studying various aspects of the war - including evacuees, the Blitz and rationing. Much of our English will be inspired by the classic Michelle Magorian book: "Goodnight Mister Tom" During our science sessions, we will be studying electricity and sound - becoming spies sending Morse code from behind enemy lines... Our PE will include swimming and hockey to begin with, moving onto volleyball (tae kwon do was cancelled) in the second half of term. On top of all of this, we are lucky to have Mrs Mann teaching us ukulele up until Christmas - when we'll probably learn a Christmas song to wow you all with in the church!
As many of our activities are shared across year 6 (Rowan & Oak), the photos and updates on this page will apply to both classes. Please have a look below for photos of some of the things we have been doing so far! Keep checking back for updates...

Welcome to Year 6!
Our topics for the summer term will be: Ancient Egypt
The Ancient Egyptians are a fascinating topic to study, and we will be finding out all about how they lived and what they did. We'll also be writing some horror stories connected to the topic. Relating our science to our topic means that we will be looking at the human body (and how the Egyptians preserved it!). For PE, we'll be developing our hand-eye coordination through cricket as well as working on our athletics. Later in the term, we'll also be trying our hands at Frisbee! Our focus in art will be on the use of colour and clay to produce Egypian Canopic Jars.
Photos from the previous term are still below, but keep an eye out for more photos as our topics progress!
