Welcome to Year 6
This term we are learning about Russia, the children will conduct a research based project in groups. The children will research culture and religion, national dishes, weather and climate, physical and natural landmarks and Russia's history.
We hope that this style of group and independent learning will help prepare them for when they go to secondary school.
For more information please see our newsletter on the left-hand side.
This term we are learning about World War Two. We will be studying the effects woman had on the war effort, rationing, evacuees and food during the war.
In English we will be writing newspaper reports, short stories and information texts linked to the war. In maths we are covering all the objectives in our build up to the SATs in May.
It is a busy term and but we will also have fun!
We will begin the year with our residential visit to Cliffe House which provides a marvelous opportunity for us all to get to know each other. This term we have major animal theme going across the curriculum. We will be studying animals in the countryside, the rainforest and in captivity at Chester Zoo; this will form the basis of all our writing as well as some of our science. We will round off the term with lots of chocolate as we travel back in time to the Mayan civilisation and sail around the world with Michael Morpurgo.
