Term 2

A Child's War

Our topic this term is 'A Child's War'. 'A Child’s War' will help the children to understand the cause and effect of the Second World War and develop empathy for what it was like to be a child at the time. Y6 children will also learn about significant events and people involved in the war.




Trips, Visitors and Other Special Occasions

The Life Centre


The children visited The Life Centre, primarily to learn more about working scientifically and light. We had lots of fun during the day, which also inluded a variety of other activities. We were lucky enough to take part in a light workshop, play brain gym activities, walk around The Moon exhibit and planetarium and do ice -skating! It was a busy and exciting trip!

Seven Stories - Reading for Pleasure 


Seven Stories, an organisation based in Newcastle, sent visitors to our school on February 28th. The visitors delivered a number of workshops to children in Y6 and helped us to build on our existing love of reading. It was great to see so many new books which encouraged us to read for pleasure.

World Book Day


On Thursday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day in a variety of ways. The children brought in their favourite reading book to look at throughout the day. We also completed a Big Book Day Quiz and stopped, dropped and read a poem at many points during the day. It was great to see the amazing book reviews the children created based on their own favourite story.
