Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 where the teacher is Mr Baines ably assisted by Mrs Polak.
 
Already we're back from the summer holidays and find ourselves at the start of another exciting year! I am very excited to join the team here at St Minver and have planned some fabulous activities for your children. 
 
Our first term's topic is the Victorians and as well as studying this historic period of British history, the topic will be linked to our Literacy, Art, DT, and ICT lessons too. In science, we will be looking at the topics of 'Forces', 'Light' and 'Electricity'.
