In year 6 the children are taught by Mrs Franklin who encourages a positive attitude to learning. The children are encouraged to become independent learners in preparation for when they move to secondary school.
During the autumn term, they enjoy studying WW2, visiting The Nothe Fort dressed as evacuees and cooking and eating food from the war. They also study the decades since the war and how life in Britain has changed.
During the spring term the children work hard in preparation for their S.A.T.S tests which take place in May.
Finally, in the summer term, the children learn about the Jurassic coast, perform a show and go on a residential trip.
Year 6’s Autumn term topic is WWII. On the 18th October, Y6 took part in an experience day at the Nothe Fort in Weymouth. The children experienced what life would have been like during WWII. They dressed up as an evacuee and only bought a lunch that would have been available during the War; they even wrapped their lunch in brown paper. They learnt about the local area and how it was affected during the war. They visited a 1930's shop, experienced how it would have felt being in an Anderson shelter (they really enjoyed this part), learnt what it would have been like as a warden and enjoyed putting out fires (pretend of course)! This was a fabulous day and the children were a credit to our school.
