What have our children been learning in Year 6 across the Autumn 2 Term?

Year 6 have been really busy this half term. We started it off with a fascinating  Mini Mission: Tomb Raiders. We were tasked with writing an adventure text with facts about ancient Egyptian life woven through it in order to help Year 3 with their learning about Egyptians later on in the year. In order to do this, we learnt how to create tension and suspense to create an exciting adventure text, and we learnt all about what life was like for the Egyptians. 

















Following on from that, our next Mini Mission was the most magical of all: Elf. We launched our mini mission with the whole school being called by Santa into the hall which had become the North Pole! He turned us all into elves to help him increase the Christmas spirit before we transformed our classroom into winter wonderland.



Returning to our classrooms, we were met with a letter from Buddy (the elf) who told us that he was really struggling to get his dad to believe in Santa. Consequently, we decided to write a letter to dad, describing Santa's Grotto and Santa in such great detail (using figurative language and great description) in order to convince him. Year 6 did such a great job at this,

that Santa sent them a gift!


Well done, Year 6! 


Year 6 will have P.E on a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon. Music is also on a Thursday afternoon.
