Year 6 Buddies! 

Our Year 6 children have had the opportunity to meet with their Reception Buddies. Each child is paired up with a younger peer for the year and will get the opportunity to be their role model throughout their time in Year 6. The children got the opportunity to read with eachother, help the younger children with their learning through play and also get to know them in their classroom. All of the children really enjoyed their first meetings and cannot wait for more opportunities to do things with their buddy. 

Year 6 Curriculum 

To start the year, Year 6 were treading very carefully on the hunt for dinosaurs as part of their ‘Jurassic Park’ topic. The children wrote up non chronological reports on existing dinosaurs and some persuasive letters to the head of Jurassic Park in a bid to get their very own dinosaur a place in the park. In maths the children used their knowledge of number to budget and come up with their very own dinosaur safari park. In Geography they are learnt about how all the continents were formed from the super continent Pangea.

Year 6 had a fantastic time at the At the RAF Museum where they  flew into history as part of their topic ‘A Child’s War’. The class had the opportunity Immerse themselves in the stories of brave pilots, engineers, and heroes to discover the adventures of men and women through the RAF Museum’s exciting and unique stories.  The children  went of to explore local history where it happened, through the museum’s exciting, and engaging learning programmes. They were comparing materials that made magnificent flying machines; presenting mystery objects; dressing in real pilot uniforms from WWII; plotting strategy in a WWII operations room; creating fuselage, firing rockets, and playing pilots in mini planes. The highlight of the day was the amazing workshop where the children really got the opportunity to see what they have been learning about in class played out in real life. They even had a very exciting and slightly scary air raid drill to get ready for!
