Year 6

Hello and welcome to Autumn 2 in Year 6,

We’ve had a great first half term and you’ve made a great start in Year 6.

In Autumn 2, we have lots of great things ahead of us and we know you will really enjoy all of the activities we have got planned for you.

Our new topic is called ‘Fallen Fields’ and is centered around WW1. As part of this topic, you will learn which countries were the Central Powers, which were the Allied Powers and which were neutral; learn about the assassination of archduke Franz Ferdinand; create blackout poetry; amongst many other things.

Remember to keep up to date with your homework tasks as they are all part of your learning in preparation for your transition into secondary school.

Keep being fabulous!
