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.
