During the first half term in Year 6 we were learning all about the Victorians. We learnt all about the inventions that the Victorians made and what it was like for Victorian school children. We had a drama workshop come in to Year 6 from Portals to the Past. They organised a Victorian classroom and the children had to behave like Victorian school children, using a piece of slate and chalk to write. We also learnt about Queen Victoria and her reign, looking at the empire she created.


This half term we have been learning about Crime and Punishment through the ages. Looking at the different crimes that were committed during the Roman period, the Anglo-Saxon period etc. We also looked at the punishments that were given for the crimes. 


This half term we are reading Wild Boy, which the children are very much enjoying! We decided to use the book and write our own next chapter using our inference and deduction skills to decipher what we thought might happen next!


In maths we have been working on our number skills, looking at the four operations. More recently we have been working on fractions, decimals and percentages.

This half term we are learning all about North America. The children are enjoying researching the lives of Native American Indians and will eventually be writing their own legend set in North America. In art, the children have been studying the famous 'American Gothic' picture and they have created their own parodies.
