Hello Year 6 and your parents/carers!
Myself (Mrs Hamilton) and Mrs Whittaker (was Mrs Riley) are your teachers this year – together we will be working as a team to make this a fun and successful year for all! Our main priority is to look after you all, support you all in your learning and prepare you for your next journey to High school.
We will be adding all the amazing learning to this page over each half term so please keep checking!
For parents/carers, we operate an open door policy and we are available at the end of the day, alternatively please get in touch by phoning the office or message on Class Dojo and either myself or Mrs Whittaker will get back to you as soon as we can.
Lets make 2023-2024 a brilliant year!

We noticed that sources showed Maya people wearing headdresses and many statues had masks. We used this as the source of our non-chronological report. We came up with questions we wanted to know the answers to and researched them using the internet and books.

They looked into food that grow in the region in Mexico and what foods they make. We researched in to how the food ends up on our plates and how to have a healthy diet.

We are reading Kensuke’s Kingdom and we have just got to the part where we have met Kensuke… we instinctively came up with questions and feelings for this character so we came together and wrote them down.
Just look at our art work! We are very proud of them. We looked at the style of Julian Opie and how he draws portraits then we used this as inspiration for our own work. The results are amazing!
