Year 6 (Class 13)

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.



Please note class 14 will start their swimming lessons on Friday 10th September for 8 weeks. Dates can be found in a separate letter.



Homework will be set on Wednesday and will be due in the following Monday. Please support your children in uploading their work to the assignments section of Teams.

Please find below a list of helpful websites that can be used to support your child's learning at home.



Please see your child's homework book for their login.
