  • The Little Yellow Leaf’ by Carin Berger 
  • ‘Crater Lake’ by Jennifer Killick 
  • ‘The Undefeated’ by Kwame Alexander and Kadir Nelson 

We will also be using videos from Literacy Shed to engage and inspire us, especially within our writing and English lessons. 

Important Information for Year 6:  

  • A list of spellings will be sent home to learn at the start of each half term. This contains the test date for each week’s five specific spellings.  
  • P. E. lessons will take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Children should come into school in the morning in their sports kit for these sessions. 

We will be using a range of writing, images, practical activities and technology to present our learning throughout the Summer Term – keep an eye on our Twitter page (@GorseyY6for updates along the way!
