Autumn Term 2018

Welcome to all children in your final year of Primary Education.  The year will be full of interesting and engaging lessons with an increased desire on both quality and quantity of work.  We expect our students to be well-mannered, organised and kind.  Throughout the year we embrace our local area by visiting areas such as Portland Museum, Charmouth and Carey Camp.  We are looking forward to an action packed year of academic and personal progression.   Mrs Restorick and Mr Barter.

Please find attached beneath the Topic Grid outlining the curriculum focus for the Autumn term, Welcome Letter and the Charmouth letter for our trip on Tuesday, 25th of September.  If there is any information required regarding school life please contact the office and make an appointment with a member of the year 6 team.

Year 6 Residential Trip CAREY 2019 LETTER

Year 6 Topic Grid Around the World

Portland Museum

The children have enjoyed a successful visit to Portland Museum learning about Island’s varied past; from Shipwrecks to World War 2.  The children behaved impeccably, listening to the stories of the Avalanche and the Forest intently and curiously analysing the many artifacts on show.  The year group also ventured down to Church Ope Cove visiting the ruins of St. Andrews and discovering The Pirates’ Graveyard.  We hope this kick starts a long-lasting enthusiasm towards your home.

Charmouth

Two trips already completed within the first month! St. George’s Number One for Extra-Curricular Excellence!

The children were excellently behaved and took the opportunity to learn first hand from fossil hunters exceptionally well.  The children were introduced through a scientific look at the physical make-up of fossils and then a short geographical study of the Jurassic Coastline.  Finally, the children were allowed to explore the beach, hunting for fossils (no not looking for Mrs Roberts) and clues to our prehistoric past.  Well done!
