Welcome Class 6 (and any visitors from other year groups too.) We have already welcomed some of you back to school over the last two weeks and are thinking of those of you who are not with us yet.We really hope that we will all soon be able to be together again, but know that all our families are doing the right things to keep us healthy and happy until we can.
Our new topic for this term is The Hobbit! To try and help those of you who are at home, I have put some links below to the materials and planning we will be using in school. We will also be using the White Rose Maths materials that are below as they go over lots of the learning you will need to be confident with when going on to secondary school. I will update all of this planning weekly. Please also remember to continue to do your reading every day and complete your work on Spelling Shed, Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Stars.
If you have lost or mislaid your password for any of these sites, please email me and I will be happy to send you a reminder.

This term our topic is ‘War and Peace.’ If you would like to know what we have been learning, why not have a look at our Y6 War and Peace Parent Planner.
We started the term by finding out about The Treaty of Versailles which ended the First World War. We were very surprised to learn the very strict terms of The Treaty, and the effect this had on ordinary people in Germany. This helped us to understand some of the causes of World War Two.
Since then, we have learnt many facts about World War Two by reading the book ‘Goodnight Mr Tom.’ It has helped us to understand why children were evacuated, and what life was like for them and their families during this time. We got into role, and wrote letters either as parents or evacuees. We also had a visit from Mrs Hodgson (Miss Hodgson’s Mum) who lived through the war in Hastings. She told us lots of stories about air-raids, rationing, evacuation, air-raid shelters, ‘ack ack’ guns, doodlebugs and even ‘unconscious pilot!’
We are really looking forwards to learning more about life on the home front in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and can’t wait to welcome you to our Class Worship on Friday 13th March.
