As part of our Year 6 focus, we have been looking at different sentence structures and how we can use these to improve our writing.

We are currently studying 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian, which we are all enjoying immensely.

For Black History Week, Year 6 focused their studies around the inspirational footballer Walter Tull. He was one of the first people of mixed heritage to play top-flight football in Britain. He was the first black infantry officer to command white troops during World War One.

In March 1918, shortly before the end of the war, he lost his life in battle. We created short documentaries about his life.
