If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of the Year 6 team and we will be more than happy to help.

Trip to the West Midlands Police Museum


This week we had a trip to the West Midlands Police Museum in Birmingham. We had a talk from one of the curators about law and order through the ages, and looked at the rich history of Crime and Punishment. Later we created our own tour, finding answers to questions from the displays and even got to try and solve an investigation. We also dressed in various police uniforms and practiced putting some 'criminals' in cells. Finally we had chance to take our own fingerprints.


It was most excellent.

Learning this term


Maths this term will focus on shape. Homework will be sent home every Friday and must be completed by the following Tuesday.

The Arrival


In our last writing unit we wrote a recount of a migrant travelling to another country using the book 'The Arrival' as inspiration.


Below are a few examples of some excellent work.
