Welcome to year 6!
Our current theme - Disasters - takes us on a journey exploring different natural disasters from around the world and the impact they can have on human lives. This predominately geography-based topic will include severe weather (including hurricanes, tornadoes and flooding); devastating earthquakes; thunderous volcanic eruptions and terrifying tsunamis.
Have a look at our topic map to see the key questions we will be investigating.
Our focus in writing is producing information texts. We will be selecting the correct register and appropriate levels of formality to produce effective non-chronological reports and science investigation write-ups.
Our current science topic is Light. We will be exploring key concepts such as how light travels; how we see and what shadows are.
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!
