Learning Excellence

Class 14 - Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

 

Topic: Britain at War

 

We are learning all about World War I and II this term.

We are currently reading 'One Boy's War' and will read 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo later in the term. This Topic always causes lots of excitement among the children and we're looking forward to enjoying this term with them.

 

Swimming
