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. Last term, the children absolutely loved performing their Christmas production and really enjoyed completing the extra responsibilities they've been given (buddies/play monitors/prefects/house captains). The fun isn't over yet though- the children have now got Robinwood to look forward to! Year 6 will be having a meeting on Wednesday 17th January about our trip.
As well as exciting English and maths topics, our foundation topic for this term is a Science based topic all about Inheritance and Evolution. We will also still be exploring World War One, particularly a local hero Noel Chavasse who won the Victoria Cross twice.
During this term, we will be reading 'The Man Who Walked between the Towers' (Mordicai Gerstein), 'The Giant’s Necklace' (Michael Morpurgo) and 'The Watertower' (Gary Crew/Steven Woolman). We will also study poetry that links 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.
