In Year 6, we embrace and promote our school mission, vision and values statements along with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and The 17 Sustainable Development Goals. By making links to these areas in our learning we develop our knoweldge, skills and wisdom to make a positive contribution to the world in which we live.

During the first few weeks of term, we will be using a whole School Text.

This heartfelt and thought-provoking book from Oliver Jeffers is dedicated to his son, Harland and was written in the first two months of Harland’s life. It was inspired by Oliver’s desire to make sense of the world for his son, but is also a gift to all children at this time, helping them to make sense of their world and their role in it. We chose this book to build a sequence of work around because it provides a powerful vehicle for children to reflect on and make sense of the world we are all living in. The words and pictures work together to help children to understand their place in the world and to move forward together in a positive and constructive way.
