Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 homepage





Our first English topic this half-term is 'Alma', an animated film that the children will be re-writing and adding a chapter to.  After 'Alma' we will be writing instructions based upon a fictional journey to school.  Both topics are extremely fun and we hope the children enjoy them even half as much as we do! 

 The links below will take you to some useful activities that you could use at home to support their learning.
