Welcome to Year 6 - Bridgetower
Welcome to Bridgetower class. Our class has been named after the famous violinist George Bridgetower, who was born in 1778 in Poland. He lived most of his life in England, performing around fifty concerts in London.
During this term, as part of the National Curriculum, the children in 6 will be taught Relationship and Sex Education. In primary schools the emphasis is on safe and healthy relationships and staying safe. The children will be learning about the physical and emotional changes which happen through puberty. Parents and carers will be shortly sent a letter to invite them into school to discuss the content of the lessons and view the content of the videos we use to teach the children.
Summer 2- Topic
Our topic this summer term has been World War 2. The class have produced some amazing writing on The Battle of Britain, which I have displayed in the school. This half term we will be focussing on the devastating impact the war had on the people of Europe. We will examine the persecution of the Jewish population through the story of Anne Frank. We have already started reading the diary in class and the class are already gripped. This will link into RE where we will examine what people can learn from the Holocaust and the effect it had on the survivors
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school as there are a number of children not bringing in their kits. As this is such a busy half term could you ensure that children have their PE kits at all times as the days we do PE may vary.
Year 6 trip
The end of year trip will be to Chatsworth Farm and Adventure Playground. This follows a really successful trip last year, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. A letter with all the details will be sent out shortly. The date of the trip will be the 19th July.
