The topic in Year 6 during spring term will be The Rain forest. They will be exploring the layers of the rain forest, animals and climate. The children will be researching and holding their won deforestation debate. In their art lessons, Year 6 will be creating The Story of the Rain forest; where they will use natural resources to dye fabric and print the patterns/creatures of the rain forest.
In Year 6 during the Autumn term we will be spending time in Geography developing our map skills by exploring and following the points of a compass, using the GPS units, reading and drawing our own maps and keys and finally, an orienteering trip to Hamsterley Forest to put our skills to the test. Our topic this term is the Victorians where the pupils will learn about aspects such as, school life, jobs, the comparison between the rich and the poor. They will also enjoy a trip to Beamish for some first-first hand experience in a Victorian lesson (with a very stricy Victorian teacher) and exploring a mine. We will end our Victorian topic by planning a Victorian Christmas celebration. In Science, the pupils will begin learning about Evolution and Inheritance and in PE, our focus will be Tag Rugby and Gymnastics.
