Welcome to year 6 - and Oak & Rowan classes!
After learning all about the power of Earth in the Spring Term, we are starting the Summer Term with a look at the fascinating history of the Egyptians. We'll be writing horror stories and instructions (just how do you protect your pyramid from tomb raiders?!) in English, creating canopic jars in art and looking at how the human body works in science.
In PE, we will be taking part in some cricket with a visiting coach and also working on our athletic technique - in preparation for sports day!
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...

Dear parents / guardian of Oak & Rowan,
After our Sex and Relationship sessions this week, your children may have questions that they would like to ask you. They all behaved maturely and appropriately during the lessons, so well done to everyone! Our maths focus at the moment is mental maths, helping the children calculate quickly and under pressure - this was helped by the children selling sweets at our Track Day last week! We have now dived right into our end of term production, and the children should be bringing their scripts home to learn their lines - please help them!
Reading: please ensure that your child is learning their lines, and please ensure that your child takes their script and reading book home and brings it back to school every day! Please encourage your child to read aloud.
Mr Craig & Mrs Everitt
ShelterBox - the charity set up in 2000 by a Helston Rotary Club member - came in to talk about the work they do in disaster affected zones, linking with our topic. If you want more information on the charity (or to make a donation), please visit:
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!
