Year 6

 

Welcome to Year 6’s class page! We have all settled in really well and started the new (and our last!) year with positive attitudes. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead!

Miss Hammond and Mrs Smart are here to support us everyday and we even get weekly visits from Ms. Stevenson!

Our topic this term is 'People who changed the world' and our focus is on WW2 and the decisions made around this event that changed the world. We are very enthusiastic about our topic and we are hoping to learn loads more about this pinnacle point in British history! Our Independent Learning Activity for this term is to conduct a research project on someone who has changed the world. If you're stuck for ideas, there are some below to get you started!

Nelson Mandela
Rosa Parks
Martin Luther King
Joan of Arc
Florence Nightingale
Isaac Newton
Christopher Columbus
Margaret Thatcher
Boudicca
Bill Gates
