Welcome to Year 6. Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our TA’s are Mrs Marchant and Mr Hanley.
Spring: Our main topics this term are Vikings (in history) and Microbes (in Science.) We will be carrying out a large range of writing tasks, both fiction and non-fiction, using our topics as the theme. We will be writing biographies about famous scientists and writing our own legends using Viking Mythology.
In Science we will carry out experiments and observations to help us learn about mould, germs and bacteria, and consider how to stay healthy. We will also be learning about forces, such as friction, air and water resistance, and investigate these in a range of ways.
We will carry out lots of art and craft activities based on Viking artefacts, and will be using microbes as a stimulus for some artwork. In D/T we will be cooking stew and constructing longboats.
In music, we are singing songs to help us learn key facts about Vikings and Microbes. We will also learn some key musical terminology.
In PE, we will be learning the skills required to play hockey and LaCrosse, and develop tag rugby skills. We will also create sequences in dance and gym.
Our PSHCE will be focused on keeping healthy and thinking about our dreams and goals for the future.
