Welcome to Year 6!

What an exciting year of historical time travelling and globe trotting we have ahead of us! Even though school might look a little different at the moment, we are getting straight into our exciting topics and having fun learning together and asking the ‘big questions’ across our curriculum.

Our topics are fascinating. This year we are kicking off with ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’ which is all about conflict and the impact of war on the 20th Century and beyond.  Our class novels, Private Peaceful, White Feather and Once will support the children to learn about the big questions linked to this time in European history. In the Spring term, we will focus on South America and consider physical and human geography including natural disasters and the impact of humans on the environment. Our last stop on our trip around the world will be to China where we will learn about the impressive contributions of China and Asia to the modern world and global trade. In the Summer term, we will be analysing changing crime and punishment with an overview of the Kings and Queens of Britain and their impact on British values and law. For the last half term (and continuing the Crime and Punishment topic), we will have a local history focus studying the Witch Finder General. We will compare views of witchcraft at the time through comparisons of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, with contemporary portrayals of magic.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one year, we are also looking forward to some amazing trips including our annual residential trip to Kingswood and to the Tower of London!

Through our Christian values we promote happiness, care, consideration and respect for all, we build confidence, independence and self-esteem. Enjoying success within a healthy, safe, and stimulating environment, we learn in an engaging and exciting way. As life-long learners, everyone in our school community is encouraged to achieve excellence in all we do.

We cannot wait to see how high our Year 6 of 2021-22 will soar!

You are a Child of God. You are wonderfully made, dearly loved, and precious in His sight. Before God made you, He knew you… There is no one else like you!

Psalm 139

In the Autumn term, we learnt all about the first and second World Wars and the impact they had on Europe with a particular focus on Britain. We also learnt about some dances that were popular during the era and produced and performed our own Charleston! We hope you enjoy our music video.
