Year 6



Year 6 have had an exciting start to the year. Not only have introduced the children to our topic of Maafa but we have entered our Science learning with a bang and dissected a sheep’s heart!

Continuing our learning about Maafa, the children will find out about Africa (past and present) and the development of the slave trade. We will also explore Britain’s role in the transatlantic slave trade, the causes and consequences of the European colonisation of Africa and the worldwide communities that make up the African diaspora.

In Science, children will find out more about the human circulatory system and heart health, developing their knowledge about the workings of the heart and significant medical discoveries. In computing, we will teach the children about keeping safe on the internet and we will develop a website using Google.
