Welcome to our Year 6 class: the Polar Bears! This is a fantastic year group and we have lots of fun learning about WW2; Ancient Greece; and our local area.
To find out more about what we will be learning this year, please see the information highlighted in the long term plan here.
As part of our topic this half term, we are reading 'Letters From the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. Below are some of the audio recording links as requested by the children.

This term, we are learning about how Whaley Bridge has changed over time. Your child may want to conduct their own research into one of the following subjects to support their learning:
- Todbrook Reservoir
- Peak Forest Canal

They may also want to create their own sketch map of a particular area of Whaley Bridge that interests them.
