Deputy Head, Year 6 Teacher & Key Stage 2 Lead

Welcome back to your final year at Lower Peover, I hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are feeling refreshed and raring to go! I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year!

As you are now Year 6, you will be faced with many new challenges and responsibilities, which I know you will all work hard to succeed in. We will obviously have important challenges such as SATs and the transition to High School, but rest assured, that as a class, we will work together to make these experiences fun and exciting!

We have some fantastic themes to study in Year 6. Firstly, we will start with ‘Home Front’, where we will look at what impact WWII had on the lives of women and children (rationing, mending clothes, growing food, etc.). Next, we will be looking at Charles Dickens, with a particular focus on his book, ‘A Christmas Carol’. This is a fantastic piece of literature with lots of opportunities for creative writing, art and drama. Our theme of ‘Crime and Punishment’ will run alongside this. Our residential trip to Manor Adventure will also take place during the first term.

After Christmas, our topic ‘Man vs Beast’ will be where we begin our SATs Grammar & Punctuation revision through two really exciting books – to be revealed nearer the time. We will be learning all about the key aspects of rivers, mountains and the water cycle, amongst other things.

Our last term is a very busy one, beginning with our final theme, ‘Our Capital’. Following our residential to London, through art and design, science, history, geography and English, we will learn about its people, places and heritage. To conclude the summer term, in light of last year’s successful project on ‘Palm Oil’, we will be embarking on another whole school project entitled ‘Adrift’. This will focus on the plight of refugees all around the world.    

We will also have our school production, our leavers’ service at Astbury, St Mary’s and our school leavers’ service to look forward to.

See you all in September!
