Year 6 Spring 2 Curriculum Snapshot

“This half term, we have continued to learn about extreme sports. We have written a narrative, including near death experiences. We have also written a diary about a special moment in our lives. Matt (from Southampton City Mission) came to our school to tell us about Jesus' ressurection. Finally, we planted trees: hawthorn, rowen or silver birch. In addition to this, we have also been preparing for our SATs.”
