Welcome to Redwood and Juniper!

Thanks for visiting the Year 6 webpage. Here you can enjoy exploring some of  our learning and discover what we are doing in the Autumn term.

Home Learning

Home Learning can be found on the Home Learning page. Go to 'Children' and then click on 'Home Learning'. Scroll down to see the current Year 6 sheet.

In Autumn Term our topic is "Peace, Power and Propaganda". We will be learning about World War One and World War Two. Any memories/artefacts that you may have at home that are connected to the war would be much appreciated. The books we will be studying this half term are:

  • 'The Silver Donkey' by Sonya Hartnett
  • 'Stay Where You Are and Then Leave' by John Boyne

   

Fairthorne Manor

Year 6 are very fortunate that they have the opportunity to attend a 5 day residential in June. The children always have a fantastic time sleeping in tents and spending quality time with their friends before they leave to go to high school. A letter has already gone out about this trip and the deposit is due in very soon. If you would love anymore information or need another letter then please ask at the office. Here is the link to the Fairthorne Manor website so that you can have a look for yourselves.
