Class Charter

 

6s began the year by creating their Class Charter to represent the values of both the school and how we would like the class to work this year. The linked hands reflect our ambition to work together as a team and support one another.

Year 6 visit to RAF Duxford October 2018 

 

To start our World War Two topic, Year 6 visited the airfield at Duxford.  One of the highlights was meeting a  pilot of a Spitfire who explained how it worked and how fast it could go. We were then treated to a flying display over the airfield! 

 

The children also explored the rest of Duxford, finding out about World War Two which will really help in the weeks to come.

Year 6 visit to the Imperial War Museum October 2018 

 

Both classes spent the day at the museum looking at the incredible stories of brave people who have won the Victoria Cross and the George Cross.

 

As part of our topic, we also spent time in the 'Family at War' gallery, investigating life in London during World War Two.

Numeracy 

 

We decided that we wanted to improve our measuring skills and used a number of practical exercises to do this. 

Brettenham Reading Day 

 

By dressing up and running a reading Marathion, the day raised over £500 to buy new books for the classrooms. It was a huge success and celebrated everyone's commitment to such an important part of the curriculum.

Year 6 art

 

Sadly, wars continue to have a huge impact upon people and 6s wanted to create some art to reflect this. We used old newspapers and silhouettes of lost figures to create these impressive collages.
