Y6 Learning Blog

Welcome back from your lovely winter holidays. We've been delighted with the attitude of the children as they've come back. They haven't lost their interest in learning and are showing ever more 'Year 6' attitudes and behaviours around school.
 
This half term, we will be mainly studying a theme based around World War II and linking it to the world we live in now. We will be exploring this through history, geography, art and P.E.
 
A highlight of Year 6 is always the Lindy Hop competition which will take place next half term where children will compete across the year group for the Glitter Ball Trophy. We are already immersed in the practice.
 
We will also be looking at the Mi Amigo plane crash which happened close to our school in Endcliffe Park 75 years ago this year. This cause is currently being championed by Dan Walker from BBC Breakfast and we hope we can get involved in the memorial events.
Below is an overview of the key knowledge we would like the children to know by the end of our time looking at how history is reflected in the World. If you would like to work on any of these ideas at home, please do. It's a wonderfully rich subject and the children love it.
It's been confirmed!
 
There will be a Mi Amigo memorial event on the 22nd February. Although this is half term, the Year 6 team will be there and we will be studying the event prior to half term. Come along and enjoy the day.

With SATs over, the Year 6s are beginning to prepare for the end of year show and their transitions to Secondary School. At home, please talk to your children about their skills and talents and what they might be able to do for our end of year show: The Greatest Showman.
