Welcome to Year 6!
Class Teachers - Miss McCrystal & Mrs Diaz
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Ambrose
With this being the children's last year in primary school, everyone at St William of York wants to make this last year as special as possible for the children. We have a lot to look forward to; Christmas production, extra responsibilities (buddies/play monitors/prefects/house captains) and of course, Robinwood!
As well as exciting English and maths topics, our foundation topic for this half term is World War 1 and the impact it had on Liverpool. This mainly has a history focus but we will also look at it from a geography perspective.
During this term, we will be reading 'Private Peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo and a range of short texts and poetry that link with our foundation subject topics. After the success last year, we will also be having focused Computing, Art and Design Technology weeks which the children will really enjoyed.
If you have any questions or queries about anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.
