Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Together Everyone Achieves More



Year 6 have been enjoying following current news topics from around the world.  We feel we have a responsibility to have a local, national and global awareness.


Did you know that elephant poaching is still a big issue?  In guided reading we have read BBC articles about what is happening in Botswana.  We feel we have a responsibility to give these beautiful animals a voice.  We are writing to Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP and Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. 


We have been inspired by Greta Thunberg, who has spoken out about climate change. 

Following this, we researched the three main causes of climate change:

  • Deforestation

  • Fossil fuels

  • Agriculture


As part of science week we wrote inspirational speeches about the issue, calling for everyone to think carefully about their impact on the planet.

Our pupils were very inspired by the messages Greta gave in her speech.

When learning about how the circulatory system works, we researched the government 'Opt-out system' and wrote a balanced argument.  The children produces some detailed work and talked about it with their families.
