This Term's Core Value: RESPECT

This Term's Core Value: RESPECT 1

Our big theme for the term is:

Why should we care about our natural world? 

 

Our key text for this term is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell

 

 

We will also be learning all about the rainforest and the life of David Attenborough, considering the impact of humanity on the world and what we can do for conservation of our planet. 

Year 6 Book Club

 

This year, we will be continuing with our fantastic, and hugely popular, book club. All children have got a reading challenge with a list of book titles inside their homework diaries. Children must read for a minimum of four times a week to receive a merit. 

 

For those really enthusiastic readers, see the document below for a list of other suggested books. Happy reading.
