Welcome to Year 6!
Class Teachers: Mr Hardy, Mr Wright, Miss Saunders, Mrs Lemm and Miss West
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these ‘Southey’s Super Six’. These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have previously had.
Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.
This term has been incredibly busy and the children have loved all of the topics we have covered so far. We hope you enjoy looking through their work as much as we do!
In Autumn 1, we were lucky enough to visit the Eden Camp WW2 museum. The children were fascinated by the artefacts, exploring the huts and bringing the learning from the classroom to life as they ventured through the Blitz, a puppet show and even a submarine!

In the first half-term the art topic was based around printing. The children were asked to explore various printing techniques, research different artists and then create their own design. They then had to carve this design into a lino tile, before printing using various colours and techniques. I am sure you will agree that the results speak for themselves!
In the second half term, our Titanic topic began and we started to research what life would have been like on the ship and the reasons for it sinking. As you can see from the work below, their writing (both recounts and diary entries) are brilliant and they really understood the events and empathised with those on board.

Finally, we wanted to thank all the adults that helped as part of the “Sausage and Sew” workshop this half-term. All of the pupils produced fantastic cushions and we truly mean it when we say we couldn’t have done it without you!
