Cradley Church of England Primary School Believe, belong, be happy; every child, every chance, every day

Year 6

Welcome back everyone! I hope you have had a refreshing half term break and are ready and raring to go for our next Autumn term! 


We are going to continue our topic of how World War 2 affected Cradley and answer the question, 'How were our ancestors affected by World War 2?'. We will discover how women at home helped with the war effort and the pivotal part they played in the Midlands. We will also of course perform our Remembrance Worship, with the British Legion holding our 1 minute of silence. We will then finish our topic by looking at how/why the war ended and how people back home celebrated this. We will then celebrate ourselves with our own 'Street party'! 

 Below is a great website for you to research some information about World War 2:


Our science topic for our next half term will be Light! The children will discover not only how light moves but also how it enables us to see different objects and colours! We will then move on to different parts of the light unit and look at refraction of light and the relationship between angles of incidence and reflection.
