To support our transition to secondary school, Year 6 children will attend a local army barracks to learn essential skills and knowledge that would help them when moving to and from school. The aims of the campaign are to enable children to become more aware of personal safety, make a contribution to crime prevention, avoid being a victim of crime, know what to do in an emergency, foster good citizenship and actively contribute to their own health.
As part of our study of local history, we intend to visit the International Slavery Museum based in Liverpool's Albert Dock. We will explore the testimonies of African slaves who were forcibly removed from their homes in order to work in plantations overseas in the Caribbean. We will look closer at the evidence of even more street names around our city, which have been influenced by significant slave traders of the time.
To mark the 250th anniversary of William Wordsworth, Year 6 are heading to Dove Cottage (the home of Wordsworth) in the Lake District to take part in a workshop entitled, 'Wordsworth and his Poems'. Here we will be looking closely at the poetry of this literary great, whilst enjoying the splendor of the environment that so famously inspired him.
