Hello my name is Mr. Parker and I would like to welcome you to Year 6. I would also like to introduce you to Mrs. Holden who is the teaching assistant in Year 6. In Year 6 we link different areas of the curriculum through our topic work.
Some of the topics that we cover include:
-What life was like for children during WW2.
-Vikings into Anglo-Saxons
We mainly follow the White Rose Hub curriculum for Maths and link our Maths work across the curriculum where possible.
We also aim to link the texts that we study in English to our topics. We teach weekly units based on these texts over a half term. Wherever possible we use visual text in our learning too. Some of the texts that we study include:
-Goodnight Mr. Tom
-Put Out That Light!
-A Christmas Carol
-Journey to Jo Burg
-If Polar Bears Disappeared
