In November, Year 6 have continued to learn all about Jarrow's history. We have been investigating the legacy of the Jarrow Crusade as well as using this topic as inspiration for some creative writing in Literacy.
We have also been very lucky this month to have been on many wonderful trips including one to the Theatre Royal to visit the world renowned illustrator Patrick Benson (illustrator of The Owl Babies and The Minpins). We have also visited the VUE Cinema's film festival to watch the new Goosebumps film and have taken part in our local athletics competition.
In October we attended the annual RAP (reducing accidents at play) event where we learnt all about keeping ourselves safe on the metro, at the beach and during our everyday life. We also began learning about the Jarrow Crusade and the significance it still has today.
We have continued to develop our reasoning skills in maths, having lots of fun solving a range of tricky problems throughout the first half term. Our hard-work and perseverance has enabled us to become far more resilient mathematicians.
