Welcome to Year 6.

This term our topic is 'Britain at War'.  

This project teaches children about the causes, events and consequences of the First and Second World Wars, the influence of new inventions on warfare, how life in Great Britain was affected and the legacy of the wars in the post-war period.


Science: Electrical Circuits and Components - This project teaches children about electrical circuits, their components and how they function. They recognise how the voltage of cells affects the output of a circuit and record circuits using standard symbols. It also teaches children about programmable devices, sensors and monitoring. They combine their learning to design and make programmable home devices.


RE: Ascension and Pentecost - This project will allow children to explore the ways these events make Christianity distinctive.


Art: Distortion and Abstraction - This project teaches children about the concepts of abstraction and distortion. They study the visual characteristics of abstraction and create a musically-inspired, abstract painting.


DT: Make Do and Mend: This project teaches children a range of simple sewing stitches, including ways of recycling and repurposing old clothes and materials.


PSHE: Being My Best - This unit will help children develop aspirational goals.


PE: Outdoor Adventure Activities and Rugby

Pick and Mix

Your child will bring home their Pick and Mix linked to their topic. Pick and Mix projects are suggested activities that help to inspire children beyond the classroom. Each activity provides an opportunity for children to explore their topic further using a number of different skills. When children have finished a project, they can bring this into school where each class will have a designated time to celebrate the learning that has taken place. Projects can stay in school and be displayed on each class’s working wall or can be taken home.

If you have any questions about how to further support your child's learning at home, please contact your child's class teacher via Class Dojo or the school office.
