Teamwork - Respect - Aim High
Mrs Webber, Mrs Jones and Mrs Reeves
Welcome to the Summer term, Year 6!
Year 6 will be travelling back to the Victorian era this half term, where they will explore aspects of Victorian life and how it compares to modern times. They will have a chance to discover inventions created during this period, how education compares and what jobs Victorian adults and children did.
This term, Ospreys will be studying Street Child by Berlie Doherty.
Jim Jarvis is a runaway. When his mother dies, he is all alone in the workhouse and desperate to escape. But London in the 1860s is a dangerous and lonely place. Jim faces a constant battle to survive. Just as he finds some friends, he is snatched away and made to work for the remorselessly cruel Grimy Nick, constantly guarded by Nick's vicious dog, Snipe. Will Jim ever be free?
In Literacy, the children will be using 'Street Child' as a basis for many different types of writing, including persuasion, setting and character description and narrative.
This half term Ospreys will be learning about Angles and Shape, as well as revising all other topics covered across Year 6 before SATs.
