Hi everyone!

Welcome to Surfers! We are a brilliant, multi-talented bunch of Year Sixes, taught by Mrs McKellar-Savage. We're supported by our fantastic Teaching Assistants, Mrs Wood and Mrs Sloper, and have a variety of exciting learning planned for the Autumn Term. 

Our topic this half term is 'Conflict', which has a history focus. You can find our topic knowledge organiser at the bottom of the page. We'll be learning about World War II, with a local history focus. We'll be learning about the experience of evacuees and what life was like for children during this period.

Our key texts this term are:

Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll

Rose Blanche by Ian McEwan

Our current class reader is:

Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray


Here is some useful information about our day-to-day routine:
