Welcome to Year 6!
We are now heading into the Summer Term, and year 6 are revising for the SATs. Good luck to the children, who have and continue to work exceptionally hard, proving themselves to be great role models to the younger classes, and preparing themselves for secondary school. I'm immensely proud of each and every one of my class, and I am sure they will do themselves proud.

This term, our new topic is The Kingdom of Benin c.900-1300 C.E.
The Benin Empire made great achievements in science, administration, technology, architecture, astronomy and town-planning, but it is most famous for its amazing artworks.
Kilvrough - Day Four
A challenging but fun final day. Two groups went canoeing which was hard work but with good teamwork and communication they manage to travel down the canal and even have time to enjoy the water at the end!
Due to dry weather another group were luck enough to drive to the Breckon Beacons to experience caving which, despite being dark and cold proved to be a lot of fun with fears being faced and a total success.
Kilvrough -Day Three
Despite torrential rain and gale force winds, we have had a great day of waterfall walking and climbing/abseiling.
The views were stunning in both activities and the wet weather didn't dampen our spirits!
Kilvrough - Day Two
Another brilliant day of climbing, abseiling and canoeing.
We have faced and conquered fears, improved our communication and listening skills and worked exceptionally well as a team.
After a delicious dinner, we took part in a night time walk through woods, a golf course, to a desserted castle!
Kilvrough - Day one
Team building games.
Orienteering in the dark.
Showing excellent responsibilities sorting their rooms and serving dinner.
Everyone looking forward to the activities tomorrow!
Our topic 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' is off to a fantastic start! We have been exploring the text, and writing some amazing character descriptions. We've even written some Haiku poems as riddles. Can you guess which characters these are?
Melancholy, sad, Falling down the hole,
Blue, yet green as an emerald, Strange adventures lurk beneath,
Back like a chessboard. She's in Wonderland.

We've also started to make our own ceramics for the Mad Hatters Tea Party. We have been inspired by the contemporary artist Grayson Perry.
Welcome to Year Six's section of the website. This is a great place for children to access materials, that enable them to practise spelling. For everyone else, it is a place where we can share our learning and experiences with you!
Our topic for the Autumn Term 2017 is 'A Hole In The Ground'. We will be using 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' to support this topic.A curriculum map can be found under 'Parents- our curriculum- curriculum maps'
I will shortly be adding links to useful websites and documents that can help with revision and practicing for the SATs. I am very confident that with hard work, dedication and motivation, we will have a fantastic year!
