Year 6 is a very exciting year as it is the children's final year in primary school. It is a year where we prepare children for secondary school and build up their independence.
The Year 6 team are really looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year and we know you will have a fantastic year with us. We have many interesting learning journeys to take which have been carefully crafted to ensure you will have a year of high-quality learning.
In Geography, we will start off the school year learning about the climate zones and biomes around the world. In Term 3, we will continue our learning of climate zones focusing on climate change. We will look at who is responsible and affected by climate change and what actions can be taken against climate change. Finally, in Term 5 we will expand our geographical skills by learning about mountains.
We will start Term 2 by learning about the history of the great world wars. Later in the year, in History, we will learn about crime, punishment and justice and how laws have changed through history. Finally, at the end of the year, we will be learning about Baghdad and early Islamic civilisations.
In Science, we will start the year with a focus on light and learning about how we see things. We will progress our learning on to electricity in Term 2 followed by evolution and inheritance in Terms 3 and 4. As part of this, the children will study famous scientists including Mary Anning and Charles Darwin. Living things and their habitats will be the focus of learning in Term 5 and, finally, Term 6 will focus on animals including humans.
