Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!
Hi, my name is Justin Holmes and I am delighted to be teaching Year 6 this year. We are also very lucky to have Mrs Corcoran and Mrs Rosinska supporting us in our learning.
During Autumn 1, we were learning about World War 1. In English, we wrote letters home from the trenches, a balanced argument about sending 250,000 teenagers to war and poems about the Christmas Truce. We also visited the Regimental Military Museum in Bodmin, and got to experience life in the trenches.
This term, Autumn 2, our topic is Blood Heart. We will be exploring the circulatory system in Science. Also, we will be writing narratives with suspense, tension and atmosphere (where the heart will certainly be racing!) and newspaper reports about a mysterious disappearance....
If you need to contact me, please send a message via Class Dojo or to my email:
This year's topics:
  • Autumn 1- World War 1
  • Autumn 2- Blood Heart
  • Spring 1- Frozen Kingdom
Please check your child's bag every Friday for home learning opportunities.
Reading should be recorded in reading records at least 3 times a week.
