Curriculum Newsletter Summer Term - Going Global

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Year 6.

This term our topic is

Going Global!

We will be finding out about how trade has changed and developed through a study of the Ancient Mayan and Aztec societies and their use of chocolate as currency.

We will go further into looking at chocolate today and the impact that modern trade in chocolate can have on the lives of those in developing countries.

Our trip this term will be to Cadbury World to help us find out all we can about chocolate and hopefully get to taste some too!

We have made puppet shows to retell the story of Shakleton's exciting adventures in the Arctic.

We read the book Ice Trap, wrote our own play scripts then used the scripts to create a performance.

We hope you enjoy our videos below!

Victorian School Day

What a fabulous day we had in Victorian School.

The children were extremely well behaved and well turned out.

The children thought that Mrs Cullerne was very strict and Mrs Davies was polite.

During the day the children learnt about using 'hooks and hangers' for their handwriting, recited times tables and found out about the British Empire.

Thank you to the parents who came along to watch.

Year 6 Autumn Term Update.


We had a great time at The Black Country Museum last week. It was really interesting to speak to all of the volunteers and see the real Victorian artefacts.

We had a very strict lesson in the Victorian School Room and had an exciting and extremely dark trip around the mine.

Have a look at our photos below.

Malvern Town Expedition


At the beginning, get off the train at the lovely Great Malvern station. There are some gas lamps that have been here since the Victorian times. Then there are pillars that have flowers colourful as the rainbow. After that, you go under the train tracks onto the other side of the station. Then you go outside to the car park and you


After you walk out of the station and go to the Priory House. You can see some gargoyles to scare away evil forever but it is now called the council house.

Later you can go to the churchyard and find Charles Darwin’s Daughter grave stone. When you have found it check when she was born and died.

When you are tired you can go to the Winter Gardens to take a rest then you can carry on.

Later you can go to the famous Abbey Hotel that’s been here for many years. Next you go up a steep hill and you will find a old shed that used to have some donkeys in it because rich ladies, who would have really big houses, would use the donkey’s to go up the hills to St Ann’s Well to carry their water.

After this, you could go for a walk up the famous Malvern Hills and when you get to the top of the Hills you could see all of Malvern, even the countryside from miles away. Then you go to St Ann’s Well and while you are there you could taste the famous Malvern water.

Finally you can go back to the station for your journey home.
