6KW Mrs Kerr & Mrs Mrs Winston
Welcome to 6KW
Have you had a relaxing half term? We hope you got some rest, as you have been chosen for a very important mission. Over the next six weeks, you (and your Year 6 adventurers) must attempt to 'Survive Antarctica'!
That's right, our Autumn 2 topic will transport you to a frozen tundra and you'll learn how to use your brain and your brawn to succeed in the harshest conditions. You'll discover how to improvise when the chips are down and find out about great adventurers who have walked the fine line between failure and glory. You'll also find out about the delicate balance of life in a polar region and what we can do to protect vulnerable eco-systems.
So wrap up warm, this is going to be one chilly adventure...
Homework will be set every other Friday and will involve your child completing a maths task and returning it the following Friday.
Literacy homework will be set each term and each child will be asked to complete 3 tasks from the grid before half term, and a further 3 after half term. If you have any queries, please feel free to come and talk to us at the end of the school day.

Each Year 6 child has their own Google Chromebook to use within school. This is a fantastic resource and is used daily to enrich the curriculum. Children have access to a wide range of apps and tools at their fingertips to support their learning and publish their work.
