Year 6

Welcome to Year 6


What a super start to the new school year! Year 6 have settled in amazingly and are already working hard and shining bright with our curriculum. Miss Porter and I are really pleased to be teaching your children again this year and are looking forward to watching them grow and develop over this year, with the support of Mrs Collins.

Autumn 1


This term our curriculum for History, Geography, Art and Design and Technology is taught through our 'Catastrophe' learning. We will investigate volcanoes and earthquakes and explore pop art and romanticism art. For DT we will be having visitors in to teach us about mechanisms through using lego - I am looking forward to seeing the children develop their skills and knowledge from Year 4 when they use levers, gears and sliders to create their Viking long boats. Look out for our virtual 'Come and Share' and 'Time to Shine' sessions, where you can get a closer look at their learning!


Our English is based around the text 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpugo, which the children are loving. Already they have produced some amazing poems and are working on setting descriptions, which are developing into super pieces of writing. 


In Science we are investigating Electricity. We are building on the children's knowledge from year 4 and exploring different types of circuits and investigating what affects them.
