Our Class Novel - Spring Term:

During class novel time, we will be reading 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman.

Once (Once/Now/Then/After) : Gleitzman, Morris: Books


Autumn Term:

This term our theme, ‘Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!, is designed to explore the pressures of climate change on different areas of the world. Through this sequence of lessons we will be considering how climate change has affected peoples’ lives, how countries are acting to slow climate change and what forms of renewable energy are available. To support this theme across the curriculum, we will be looking at Torres Garcia’s style of art, creating Samba music and learning a Samba dance.

Macmillan Coffee Morning - Year 6 Bake-off

Every year, children in Year 6 take part in a Bake-off to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Children are set the task to bake a cake and to bring it into school. Parents are invited it to buy cake, a coffee and vote which is their favourite cake. Votes are castled and winners are announced for 'most technical', 'showstopper' 'children's choice' and 'parents choice'.
