Y6 - Giraffe

Welcome to Year 6.


I am proud to lead Giraffe class and everyone who works hard within it, both students and staff. My name is Mrs King, our fabulous teaching assistants are Mrs Wilson and Mrs Griffiths. Mrs Whittle, Mrs Duggan and Mr Perry are SEN Teaching Assistants in our class. Mrs Gransden has also joined our team and works with the whole class every Wednesday.


We are kicking off 2015 by zooming into space 'To infinity and beyond!' Not only are we expanding our space knowledge but we are also examining light, how fast light travels and how our eyes work!


Over the remaining terms of the year, not only we will be finding out about our local area, delving into a world of chocolate and writing our own 'Lonely Planet Guide to the world'. Combined with Year 5 and 6 camp in May and an end of year production to rehearse and perform, it looks as though 2015 will be busy one indeed!


So hold onto your hats and join me for a roller coaster ride in Year 6!

Mrs King

Year 6's Freedom Song

We imagined how Slave workers felt as they were taken from their homes and transported across the world to work on plantations in the West Indies. Each table wrote their own version the famous freedom song 'Go down Moses'. We hope you enjoy it!
