Welcome to Purja Class

Known as the King of hardcore climbing, Purja first began climbing at altitude in 2012, at the age of 29, and four years later reached the summit of Everest as an anonymous client while on leave from the U.K. Special Forces. Then, in 2019, having previously climbed only four of the Death Zone peaks, he summited all 14 in just six months and six days. He called it Project Possible, because people who know about such things told him it couldn’t be done. We love the idea of any project being possible here in Year 6.

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.

PE
Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please come to school in your PE kit on those days. Remember 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. Please note, our outdoor session has changed to Thursday afternoon.
