Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 Page

We will keep you up to date with what is happening in your child’s year group in this section. Details of their topics, class trips, wow days and class based activities can be found here.

Summer 2018: Fears and Dreams

Our topic for the summer term is called ‘Fears and dreams’. The children will be looking at the story of Phillipe Petite, who wire walked across the twin towers. They will be thinking about the transition to secondary school and discussing what their own fears and dreams are for the future. Later on in the term we will visit ‘Chessington World of adventures’ where children can face their fears whilst living the dream. It is also a chance to reflect on their time at Eastbrook and celebrate their wonderful achievements!

Spring 2018: Over the Deep Blue Sea

Year 6 are studying the Vikings in their topic work and are putting on their curriculum assemblies to the Year 6 parents this term. They will be having a visit from an external visitor that will help bring the topic alive for them! They are also learning Viking songs in music and all of them are learning to play the recorder. As a result, many have now joined the recorder club and are playing regularly in Friday’s celebration assembly. In literacy, the Year 6 children are studying the award-winning book “The Life of Pi” by Yann Martel and their reading and writing work is based around this superb novel.
Assemblies: Wednesday 31st January - 6VW
                       Wednesday 7th February - 6HS
WOW Day: Monday 26th March

Autumn 2017: Battles, Bombs and Bravery (WW2) 

In Year Six this Autumn term we are learning about World War 2. This will link to Literacy when we use the text ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ in Guided Reading and as a stimulus for writing. In the next few weeks ‘GMT’ is being shown at Southwick Barn if you would like to take your child to see it. We will have an evacuation day at the end of September, in which the children will experience what it was like for children in WW2 to leave their homes. Thankfully they will only be travelling to Fishersgate for the morning but it really helps inspire their empathy for the topic. We will be visiting Newhaven Fort just before half term and will finish our topic with a celebratory VE day. The children will bake, sew, garden and sing songs whilst enjoying a traditional lunch. The Evacuation and the VE day are dress up days so please start raiding your cupboard or looking in charity shops for a costumes.

Thank you for your support.
