Have a look on the tabs below to see what we have been learning about in each term…


Term 1

Year 6 have had a great first term!

Our Blacklands Farm trip back in September was a huge success. We loved climbing, orienteering, canoeing and problem solving in the beautiful Kent countryside. When we returned to school, we invited the parents in and we all made photo scrapbooks with all the pictures from our trip. 

In Story Telling Week, we read the Dragon Machine by Helen Ward. The children retold the story and drew their own illustrations. We then filmed their voice overs of the book and created a video clip using iMovie. We hope you enjoy the iMovies we have made.

Our 'Journey through South America' has taken us to Peru, Belize, Brazil and Chile. We have seen Christ the Redeemer statue, Angels Falls and other land marks using VR headsets and we have learnt about the Ancient Mayans, who lived in Central America. Our journey will continue next term... I wonder where it will take us!

In English, we have loved reading Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. We have written a spy poem and instructions on how to complete a log walk at spy training camp to go alongside our reading. We will continue to read Stormbreaker next term.

We hope you all have a fantastic half term.
