Year 6

SUMMER 1
 
It is SO good to have all children back in school - even though they seem to have grown enormously over lockdown! This term, in Year 6, we will be continuing to ensure that any "gaps" in learning are closed - especially in Reading, Writing and Maths.  The children will sit SATs papers in the final week of the term and we hope that this will give them the opportunity to show just what great progress they have made - despite COVID. As we continue to be blessed with lovely weather we will also endeavour to include some outdoor learning in our curriculum: it is amazing, for example, just how enjoyable reading in the sunshine is.
 
RE will see us continuing to focus on the Bible as we consider our Key Question: "For Christians, what kind of king was Jesus?"  The children will be asked to contemplate what a "Perfect World" might look like and how we can deal with some of the challenges that currrently prevent it from being perfect. We will also look in detail at the temptations faced by Christ and at the meaning of Ascension Day.
    • MEXICO IS WHERE WE WILL BE TRAVELLING TO (VIRTUALLY!) FOR OUR TOPIC WORK. 
 
Did you know that Mexico is where chocolate was discovered? The ancient Aztecs didn't eat it - they drank it - but we have so much to thank them for. We will study the Spanish conquest of Mexico and also look at its climate and geography.
