Topaz Class (Year 6)


Autumn 1



This half term our topic is Rivers and Seas. We have spent time looking at what is found under the water, writing descriptively in English as well as making observational drawings and creating kelp forest collages in Art. This work links to our English text for the next couple of weeks 'The Hidden Forest' by Jeannie Baker.



 We also began our term with a poetry unit covering the important topic of the Black Lives Matter movement. The children spoke passionately about their thoughts and ideas, drawing themes and messages from the poetry we studied. We used our working wall to display the poems, as well as our opinions and suggestions.


In RE, we wrote our own personal prayers, appropriate for reading either at meal times or the end of the day. We thought hard about what was important to us, what we were thankful for and what blessings we had in our lives.
