Miss Souther (Teacher)
Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page.
As we go through the year you will be learning all about the Victorian era, the rise and fall of the canals with our rich history of the boat people in Burscough. We’ll learn how Queen Victoria was the first to introduce the tradition of a Christmas tree and sew our own decorations.
In the spring term we will learn about World War II with our own links to the Burscough aerodrome. We’ll be widening our geographical knowledge as we look at countries around the world.
In the summer term we will learn about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England.
Along the way, we’ll be playing lots of games to help us learn, lots of art and DT to improve our skills and lots of PE to keep us fit.
If you want to know more about what we will learn in detail, take a look at the Year 6 curriculum document on this class page and then the subject pages too.
If you have any questions, mums or dads can always talk to us when they drop you off or pick you up, but they can also message us through the ‘Seesaw’ app, where we will be sharing all the exciting and wonderful things you do in school.
