Welcome to Year 6
Our topic this half term is …
Are you listening, boy? What is 27 plus 45? Come on – faster now; we haven’t got all day!
Find out about super-strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!
Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things we take for granted today: the electric light-bulb, the telephone and even the first flushing loo!
Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered.
Take on the role of important reformer and present your good causes to the Queen. Can you gain the support of a wealthy sponsor?
Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!

When they first arrived, they came quietly and stealthily as if they tip-toed into the world when we were all looking the other way.
Ade loves living at the top of a tower block. From his window, he feels like he can see the whole world stretching out beneath him.
His mum doesn’t really like looking outside – but it’s going outside that she hates. She’s happier sleeping all day inside their tower, where it’s safe.
But one day, other tower blocks on the estate start falling down around them and strange, menacing plants begin to appear.
Now their tower isn’t safe anymore. Ade and his mum are trapped and there’s no way out . . .
