Year 6

The Final Year - We aim to make it a great one!

 

Looking Forward... Autumn Term - Key Information

PE this term will take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that children have a full PE kit (both indoor and outdoor) in school at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Our topics for this term are ‘World War II’ (History), 'Mountains and Volcanoes' (Geography) and ‘Classification of Living Things' and Evolution and Inheritance’ (Science).  In English we will be carrying out work based on Eva Ibbotson's 'Journey to the River Sea', 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth' by Jules Verne before using our Bletchley Park trip later in the term to inspire some S.O.E. spy writing!

Please consult our Autumn 2019 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 

News

This term, as mentioned above, we are looking forward to our trip to Bletchley Park to learn more about this pivotal, and extremely secretive, aspect to the war effort. We are also looking forward to welcoming our passionate local geologist (Mr Marchini) in to share his understanding of rocks and tectonic plates to support our work in Geography. As part of our RE topic on Sikhism, we are hoping to have a visit from Harkirat Singh to share his wisdom and knowledge on the Sikh Faith.

We look forward to seeing you at Parents’ Evening and at our Cornwall information evening on September 30th.
