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. After that, we will be learning about Crime and Punishment and zooming in on the reign of Henry VIII and the start of the Church of England. We will also learn about some of the religious tensions in the early modern period and its impact on what was considered a crime. Watch out – this topic can get a bit grizzly! Then we are going to look at a local history study of the Witch Finder General. In the summer term, we will learn about China with a geography focus and start to think about global trade and the impact of humans on the natural environment before taking a last stop on our trip around the world to Mexico and South America, where we will also learn about Ancient Maya.

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 2020-21 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.
