You are now entering the Year 6 Zone! WELCOME to all!
In Yr. 6 homework is given out on different days of the week.
How did we get to modern day Britain?
This is our new topic for the term. Firstly, we will be finding out about key events in British history and then moving onto studying some world events. These will link to people who made a difference in their time and we will investigate how it has changed our society today.
In the second part of the autumn term we studied the Second World War concentrating on the turning points to the nation. We asked the question: "What changed in Britain because of Wartime?" We looked through our own eyes to see the changes. Some of the turning points we studied were: The Phoney war and the preparations, The Home front - Women at work, Air raids, Evacuation and Kindertransporte. We linked these to issues with today in terms of evacuees and refugees.
Full Steam Ahead !
We are studying Queen Victoria as a monarch and are mainly looking at the key changes in society in Victorian Britain. We will be mainly concentrating on the plight of the poor through our class novel " Street Child" and looking at the central change of steam travel. This links fabulously with our connection to the Strawberry Line!
Look below at our residential camp ; we had a Wow day to introduce our topic.
