Year 6 Curriculum
There are so many exciting learning opportunities for us this year in Year 6 and I know we are going to really enjoy the topics that are going to be covered.
In History, we will be delving into the topics of World War 2, The Windrush Generation and Monarchs through time, while in Geography we are going to be discovering about Mountains, Earthquakes and Natural Disasters, comparing where we live with places in Europe and North America and also looking at how and why people have settled in the places they have all over the world.
Our Science journey will continue studies in living things and their habitats and animal life cycles, animals including humans, the circulatory system and water transport, light, electricity and evolution and inheritance.
Widening our learning journey, we will further our understanding of online safety, coding and spreadsheets; and learn about binary, networks, quizzing and blogging in computing. Our Art topics are drawing, painting, printmaking, 3D and children will also learn how to respond creatively. Among other things, we’ll be exploring eating ethically and on a budget, gears, designing structures, switches and circuits to link with our science topics and sustainable materials in DT. In RE we will study Islam and Christianity and PSHE will also focus on an array of important topics set to both support the emotional well-being of our children and also prepare them for the wider world. Sport is on the menu in French and of course there is music and PE to get excited about too.
Best of all, there are SO many wonderful books for us to read, listen to and study this year some of which we will link to our writing, others that we will enjoy purely for pleasure…
It’s going to be a great year!
