Welcome To The Y5/6 Homepage!

           Autumn Term 2018                          

Welcome back!  We hope you've had a great summer break and are roaring to start the new school year!


This term our topic is 'Is It Right To Fight?' where we'll be investigating wars throughout history and the impact of WW2 on life in Britain.  As part of our topic we'll be reading 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by  Michelle Magorian.  See below for a synopsis of the story.
