Year 6 2018/2019
Welcome to the Year 6 contents page.
Our topics this year are:
A Child's War
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender!’.
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands... vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time...
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone… Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels!
Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought, or an idea?
Take up your arms and fight for the cause...Paintbrushes and sketch books at the ready - let's make art!

And remember to love being you… Why? Because there’s only one you: you’re one of a kind!
