Terms 1 and 2 - 2B or not 2B? That was the question

Macbeth cover                      Christmas Carol cover

Year 6 explore the works of two significant British writers, William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens. We look at the lives and times of both authors, focussing on their key works-Macbeth for Shakespeare and A Christmas Carol for Dickens. There is drama, music, art, history and ghosts for both .Which will the children prefer?

Who will win? It's a battle between two amazing authors, Dickens and Shakespeare. Over the first two terms we, Year 6, read a story by each of these brilliant authors - Macbeth by Shakespeare and A Christmas Carol by Dickens. Over the terms, we ventured to our local theatre, the De la Warr Pavilion and sung a variety of Christmas songs based on our work, in front of hundreds of people watching. So join us for the ride and 'be jolly,' but who will you choose?

Terms 3 and 4 - Running like Clockwork

Clockwork Book cover

Tick tock! Tick tock! Some stories are like that. Once you've wound them up nothing will stop them....

 

Year 6 explore the world of Philip Pullman's Clockwork, they debate the morals of a figure which can be used for good or ill, they use the story to create their own atmosphere and tension in writing. They also create their own Clockwork World Theme Park. Join us on our magical ride....

'Tick, Tock! Tick, Tock! Tension was building in Year 6, as we wound ourselves into the wonderful world of clockwork. As we read on and on we were transported to another world of mystery and murder, with surprises around every corner. We made our very own silver cogs from plastic plates. Now we have wound ourselves up, where will the book take us?'

Term 5 - That sinking feeling...

Titanic image

An historical, ill-fated journey with RMS Titanic. The children explore the Titanic's famous voyage, considering their own chances of survival as different class passengers. Who will get to the lifeboats first? In Term 5 the class are focussing on the Titanic and its tragic story - be careful if you visit the class as they will only let you visit if you have your boarding pass!

 

Term 6 - Go with the Flow

Year 6 page

In the same position as Michael Morpurgo's character from Kensukes Kingdom would you survive washed up alone on an island? I remember thinking this is silly, you haven't got your safety harness on, you haven't got your life jacket on. You shouldn't be doing this....... I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream.
