Autumn 2

Our big question for this half term is

'Who were the Victorians and what did they do for us?'

This half term we are learning all about the Victorians. Over the half term we will be placing the Victorian era in time, comparing the life of the rich and poor, learning all about the workhouse, jobs which children were forced to do and what a Victorian school was like. We are very excited for our upcoming trip to Abbey House Museum where we will be looking at Victorian artefacts and taking part in a mystery workshop!

Our class novel for this half term is Street Child by Berlie Doherty. It follows the life of little Jim Jarvis, who has had a very tough childhood, on the Victorian streets.

Autumn 1

The Year 6 children have started their year off very positively and have settled in well. We are really focusing on developing our independence and responsibility. Already, we have applied and started a variety of jobs across school, we have already risen to the challenges and responsibilities these jobs bring. One of these jobs includes being a buddy to the new Reception children; we are really enjoying being good role models and helping them settle in at Bramley St Peter's

 

 

Our big question for this half term is :

Can we prevent natural disasters from happening?

We will be looking at a variety of different natural disasters including: the impact and damage they can have on people and places;  some of the signs that a natural disaster is looming; how some natural disasters occur and using our map skills to plot some historical natural disasters. We will also be linking our topic of natural disasters in our writing and reading.

This half term our class novel is the wonderful 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. We are loving the story so far and can't wait to read more and use the novel to inspire our writing
