Year 6


Term 1 & 2

 This term, Year 6 will be studying different aspects of World War Two, through the key question ‘Why was winning the Battle of Britain important?’ To start off with, the children will find out who the main ally and axis powers were, the country leaders at the time and how the Second World War began, before they begin to explore the war in more detail. In addition to this, as part of our English learning, the text we use to base our Reading around will be The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. In writing, we will explore a variety of genre that link across the curriculum. Through our science lessons, we are studying light and how we see things; with this learning the children will develop knowledge of The Black Out and how different materials would be more or less suitable to use for curtaining. In computing, we aim to develop a factual website demonstrating what the children learn over the four months. Finally, our focus on mental health and well-being will continue throughout our lessons.
