Hello and welcome to class 6!

It’s all go in Year 6 this term!  We have so much to pack into such a short space of time! Take a look at some of our exciting plans.

This term, we are lucky enough to be visiting London. We plan on taking in all of the sights of our fabulous Capital City including Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.  We’re even going to try out the London Eye!

Our topic for the Spring term is South America; there’s so much to learn about including the unique plants and animals of the Amazon rainforest and the perils of climbing the Andes.

Year 6 love to take part in sport; we have a dance coach coming into school to take lessons this term. In addition, we look forward to taking part in numerous sporting competitions including football and hockey.

Year 6 visited SafetyWorks in Newcastle on Wednesday afternoon this week.
SafetyWorks is an innovative, interactive centre which enables children to experience a range of safety scenarios in impressive, true-to-life settings. The centre is amazing; it has its own police station, A & E room and even a replica of the metro inside.
During the visit, pupils took part in activities to learn how to keep themselves safe in various situations. They learned all about keeping safe on the roads, staying safe at home if there was a house fire and dealing with peer pressure to make the correct personal choices.
