Our Year

Year 6 have been looking at the book ‘The day the Crayons quit’. We wrote some very persuasive letters when our chairs quit for the day – we really wanted to get them back. We did eventually … we hope they don’t leave us again!


In Maths, we have being using our KS2 curriculum knowledge to solve problems systematically – it has really been making our brains work hard! 


In Science, we have studied the work or Charles Darwin. We discovered through investigations how much insulation will help a penguin survive in the cold and why camouflage helps insects to avoid predators.


Our History lessons have focused on the history of Elswick and Benwell. We particularly liked visiting the home of Joshua Alder, a famous Victorian scientist,  and replicating some of his scientific drawings in out arts lessons.


We have also taken part in work experience through sessions with local law firm DWF. It has been fascinating to learn about life outside school and it has raised our aspirations.
