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.

Topic this term: 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.

Mrs. Witham, Miss. Sussman, Mrs. Green
