Welcome to Year 6's Webpage!

Shakespeare: Mr Kidd

 

If you have any questions for the teachers, please email our school office or grab them on the playground.

This term, in English, we will be covering a range of writing genres including a newspaper report, diary and a playscript. We will be studying C.S.Lewis' The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe from the Chronicles of Narnia series but in our reading lessons, we will be studying one of our favorite books: Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian, which links seamlessly to our History World War Two unit of 'Without War-ning! 

In this history unit, we will be looking in to how Coventry was affected by the war. We will look at rationing, evacuation and the Blitz to name just a few. Next half term, we will move on to Geography and look at the Earth's climates and biomes. 

In maths, we will be covering a range of areas from the maths curriculum but we will also be applying our maths skills to other subject areas such as History and Geography.

This term, in Science, we have been investigating electricity. We have taken what we learned in Year 4 and build on it to reason the effects of voltage on various circuit components using scientific vocabulary. Next half term, we will be moving on to Evolution and Inheritance.

RE has led to many interesting discussions already as we think about the expected Messiah, their qualities and the effect they would have in the 21st century. Next half term, we will be thinking about why people believe in a God.
