Year 6 – February

During February, the children took part in workshop sessions from PCSO Karl Jolly. The children learnt about drugs and alcohol, online safety and knife crime. The children looked at the side effects of drugs and alcohol and saw examples of how personal data can be shared online.

The children explored their topic unit of ‘Fight for Freedom’ in literacy, history and geography. The children looked at the journey of the Titanic and the passengers – who they were and why they were travelling. They compared this to the Pilgrims’ journey to America and their reasons for travel. They also compared a region in the UK to a region in the USA, specifically looking at physical and human geography features.

Year 6 completed newspaper reports about the sinking of the Titanic in literacy. The children learnt about features of a newspaper report, colons, semi-colons and dashes and formal and informal language. The children have also explored the story, ‘Kaspar, Prince of Cats’ by Michael Morpurgo, which has influence their own narratives about Kaspar – a prequel and sequel.
