Welcome to Magellan class

The Portuguese-born navigator, Ferdinand Magellan, was one of the great explorers of his era - the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean, he also played a crucial role in the first circumnavigation of the world. Did you know that Magellan named the ocean the Pacific? He chose this name, meaning 'peaceful', because it was calm and pleasant when he entered it.

Autumn Term - A World of Bright Ideas, In Your Element, Wars of the World

We start Year 6 with a communication project, A World of Bright Ideas, that looks at inventions and developments.

In Your Element focuses on Earth, Air, Fire and Water through a geography lens.

Lastly, we move on to the conflict driver with Wars of the World, taking a look at wars past and present.

Spring Term - True Crime, I Have a Dream..., British Bulldog 

The first project of the Spring term is True Crime, an exploration of the Pendle witch trials. 

Our culture theme is I Have a Dream... which looks at discrimination and prejudice. 

British Bulldog is the story of Winston Churchill which will allow us to retrieve some knowledge from our Autumn term wars topic. 

We hope to make the children's final year at our school as exciting as possible and will make sure we share their learning with you regularly.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please come to school in your kit on those days. Remember your outdoor trainers, to tape up earrings if you wear them and a bobble for long hair. We do PE in most weather (don't worry, we do stop when it gets too rainy, but not if it's cold) so please dress accordingly.
