Dear Parents,

Attached is our curriculum map for the year. We would like to remind you that the curriculum maps are just an outline of what we intend to do. As innovative teachers, who believe in working to the children’s interests and needs, we may sometimes change planning or units. You will be updated of this half termly with our half term parent curriculum letters. There is a greater focus this year in developing their character, which we know many of you will agree is very important for transitioning into high school. The curriculum map has been carefully throughout out and planned, and we will use this as a working and developing document.

Black History Month – Autumn 1

Have a look at the wonderful work and activities year 6 pupils engaged in for Black History Month. Our focus theme was ‘The Windrush Generation’. Year 6 have learnt much about this topic and did well to read around what exactly the Windrush Generation faced. Year 6 had debating lessons, lessons to explore what the Windrush generation was, comparing the generation to our key text (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), re-creating the The Windrush Empire boat, producing persuasive speeches to the government about the Windrush Generation’s treatment and home activities that involved looking at current ‘Black Heroes’ who continue to fulfil the legacy of those individuals we celebrate during Black History Month.

Have a look at some of the work below and pictures of the children working hard on their boats! The final products will be out soon…watch this space!
