Welcome to the Year 6 page!

 

We are looking forward to an exciting year, full of enthusiasm, ambition and determination as we come to the end of our journey at St Peter's. In Year 6 we strive to be role models, as we set high expectations in all we do. Recently we have been focussing on various quotes of determination, resilience and perseverance - vocabulary which we use frequently in our learning.

English - Nine pound hammer by John Claude bemis

 

This term we are reading the tale about Ray Flemming (Cob); an orphan from New York, Ray is travelling on a train with his sister (Sally) to the south of the United States to be adopted.... but that is not what Ray feels is his destiny. Instead Ray decides to follow his fathers lodestone and jump off the moving train, leaving his sister behind (he thinks for the better) as he travels to find himself battling bears, interesting characters, a pirate queen and a traveling circus.

Topic - Parliament and laws

This term we are learning about the history of Parliament and the significant events which took place to give us all the right to vote and freedom we have today. The children will be engaging with the three levels of parliament as we follow the discussions taking place in the House of Commons. The children will be questioning their MP and developing their own laws to see how they could improve our school and local area.

PDL 

In PDL this term we have been working on our goals and the world of work. We have been focusing primary on the UNICEF rights of the child articles:

Article 2 (equality), Article 4 (government and responsibilities), Article 6 (right to life), Article 12 (opinions), Article 32 (protections), Article 36 (protection from harmful activities), Article 37 (legal punishments), Article 38 (military service).

 

We have been researching our dream jobs to determine the education requirements, job responsibilities and salaries (which were surprising!) Finally we learned how to write a CV for our dream job, including all our learning this unit.
