Our Year 6 children have settled in really well to being our role models for the rest of the school. They have come back from the summer holidays with determined attitudes and oodles of self-belief in their learning, and have shown us that they are more than ready to have a successful last year at primary school!


This term our learning challenge theme is on World War 2, with our big question 'What would WW2 have been like for me?' The children have the opportunity to explore a key part of British history through the eyes of children who were involved, and they are already thinking carefully and thoughtfully about how these world events would have impacted on the lives of children across different countries and religions. We started off the term finding out about how the war affected our own local communities, researching the Sheffield Blitz and producing some super newspaper reports. We also created some fantastic Blitz skyline art work! We have moved onto exploring what it would have been like to be an evacuee and the children will shortly be writing their own diary entry as a World War 2 evacuee in Britain. Our class book this term is 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' and the children have already impressed us with their insightful and sensitive reading of this challenging text.
