Hello there YEAR 6!
Mr.Smith here to tell you about some of the exciting learning opportunities Year 6 will be experiencing throughout this academic year, which hopefully will be as normal as possible after disruption caused to school by COVID-19. The aim for this year is to prepare you for Secondary School and to create as many final memories of your time at Brickhouse as possible!
Examples of previous years photos and information can be found at the bottom of the page! Feel free to have a look through to help you if need be.
This webpage will also tell you what we are doing for our topic for each term and what we will be doing in our learning. That information can be found below.
It is also important to mention that if you have any issues or worries, please come and see me as soon as possible so I can help in any way. It's my priority to make sure your child is as happy as possible and that they want to come to school to improve their learning. One of the best ways to get in touch with me over any concerns you have is by emailing the YEAR 6 email address. I check this regularly throughout the day and also in the evening so if there are any issues I am aware of them.
The email address is email@example.com
Remember...Attendance is vitally important so come to school every day so you can learn as much as you can! You don't want to miss out on anything important do you?
Check out some of the website links below to help improve your learning!

Our First Term :
Autumn Term = Brummie Blitz!
Welcome Back to the new year 6! I hope you have had a refreshing break in the somewhat miserable weather and are now ready to come back and start all the hard work that is required in year 6! We will be going on an exciting learning journey together!
We will also be looking a lot more at questions that YOU want answered! You already prepared some of these and I have used these to develop some interesting learning topics during our exploration of the affect of World War 2 in and around Birmingham!
As mentioned above, during this term, we will be studying and learning about World War 2 and it's impact on Birmingham and the local area! This is my favourite topic at school and we will be learning about how it has helped shaped the world and area we live in today! We also will be looking at key events, key figures and key dates! We will also be looking at life before and after the war.
Hopefully, towards the end of the topic, we will be celebrating with a "World War 2 VE Party" where we give the children an opportunity to try some culinery delights from the era!
This will link to our learning about celebrating VE day! We hopefully will be getting the parents involved to come and celebrate too!
To run alongside our WW2 topic, we will be using "MY SECRET WAR DIARY" as a story book in English and guided reading to develop a more in-depth understanding of what children went through. This book focuses on a girl called "Flossie" and her experiences of war. This book is available on amazon if you wish to look at it at home.
Have a look below at some of the images and also some of the websites to get you started with your learning about World War 2!
We will also be starting the challenging year 6 curriculum where we will be looking at challenging mathematics to improve your reasoning. We will balance this with any learning missed in previous years because of Lockdown and time away from school!
It is going to be a really exciting year and I can't wait to get started!
PE for Year 6
Year 6 will have P.E. on THURSDAYS and FRIDAYS so they will need to ensure they have full kit to change into. These kits can be brought in and kept in their lockers or they can be brought in on those days.
Boys and Girls will get changed separately in different places.
