Year 6 have returned to school after the half term break….with a bang!
Our new topic this half term is ‘Bravery, Courage and Strength’ with a specific focus on World War Two. The children have been hooked by this topic and have been asking a wealth of challenging, inquisitive and engaging questions.
In Maths, we have been looking at long multiplication and long division – both tricky concepts but Year 6 have risen to the challenge!
In English, we have been looking at real life stories of survivors from World War Two and creating autobiographical writing to match these.
In History, we have been exploring the reasons for the outbreak of World War Two. We also thoroughly enjoyed acting out a ‘dogfight’ between Spitfire and Messerschmidt aircrafts when learning about The Battle of Britain.
An amazing start to the term Year 6 – keep it up!
