Our main topic for the next half term will be based on World War 1. We will be looking at the causes of WW1, which countries were involved, life in the trenches as well as what life was like for Women during the war.

As part of this we will be studying the text's One Boy's War by Lynn Huggins Cooper and Stay Where You Are and Then Leave by John Boyne.

We will also be going on a local trip to the Art Gallery and Gheluvelt Park's War Memorial. 


All children will have a school reading book. We ask that children read both independently and with an adult at home, ideally daily. This will continue to help develop your child's fluency and comprehension. As well as encourage a love of Reading!

 Year 6 Learning

Recently, as part of our World War 1 topic, Year 6 visited the Worcester Art Gallery and Museum. We had a workshop where we thought about what it would be like to be in the trenches; we imagined we were soldiers! We had to sort ourselves based on a criteria to see if we would have been able to sign up. We were even able to 'smell' what life in the trenches would have been like (it smelt horrible!). In groups we had some time to explore the museum and created some WW1 inspired art work! We had a fantastic day!



Year 6 Trip to Pershore College!

Year 6 have been lucky enough to visit Pershore College - a prize won by our school Gardening club! We saw a variety of reptiles including a bearded dragon! We also saw birds, rabbits, donkeys, snakes, spiders and stick insects! We were also lucky enough to go in to a glass house and look at a variety of plants including banana trees!

It was a fantastic morning!
