Welcome to year 6!
We have now started our next topic – Yes Minister – as we completed our work on the Ancient Greeks. This new focus is very relevant because we are investigating how our country is governed. With the general election falling during this topic, we will be exploring our voting system and looking into the work at the Houses of Parliament.
Our creative days will focus on the light sculpture ‘New Dawn’, which is held in the entrance to the Palace of Westminster – this symbolic work reflects the movement of the suffragettes and their impact on democracy.
Have a look at our topic map to see the key questions we will be investigating.
Our writing focus is on incorporating dialogue, using both direct and reported speech. This is an important skill as it supports cohesion of our writing, while allowing us to manipulate the formality.
Our current science topic is based around animals including humans. We will explore the circulatory and respiratory system, alongside how lifestyle choices can influence our health and well-being.
PE is on a Monday afternoon.
Forest School is every other Tuesday afternoon.
Creative days are every other Wednesday.
We are currently enjoying the Sandi Toksvig book 'Hitler's Canary'. If you know of any brilliant texts for our topics, or just ones that will hook the class, please let us know!
