Summer 1 - ID
Who do you think you are? Let’s discover what makes you, you. From your fingerprints and footprints, to your genes and DNA, everything is unique to you. Explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others. And remember to love being you. Why? Because there’s only one you. You’re one of a kind.
Spring 2 - Hola Mexico
Welcome to Mexico. Get ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun festivals. Is your tummy rumbling? Discover the mysterious world of the ancient Mayan civilisation. Make their chocolate, learn their poetry, play their ball game and follow all of their curious rituals. Just try to keep your head.
Spring 1 - Frozen Kingdom
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an Arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind. Wrap up well and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time.
Autumn 2 - Darwin's Delights
We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution. See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers. Let’s set sail.
Autumn 1 - Revolution
Are you listening? What is 27 plus 45? Come on, faster now. We haven’t got all day. Find out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure that you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible. Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and the first flushing toilet. Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered. Full steam ahead to the Victorian age.

School academic year 2021-2022:
Class 6 had an amazing Victorian Day in school. It was very strict and the girls were treated differently to the boys! The boys had drill and were taught woodwork and the girls were taught cooking and sewing. Everyone had to learn the 3 R's (Reading, Writing and Arithmetic) in addition to Religious Instruction. A special thank you to PCSO Sarah Linguard who brought in a very interesting collection of wash day things for the children to explore. Do you know who invented the u-bend?
Welcome everyone, we have an exciting and fun term ahead of us. Our two main topics this term are The Victorians and Darwin's Delights. If you have any Victorian objects that you wouldn't mind your child bringing into school, it would be great to show them to the rest of the children. We will be having our WOW day on Tuesday 5th October and I'm hoping lots of the children will be able to come in old-fashioned, Victorian clothes. We will also be starting our enrichment Friday sessions where the children will be able to choose from a variety of activities to enhance their learning experience. Y6 children are often chosen for positions of responsibility around school so please encourage your child to volunteer. Please feel free to catch me at the school gate or email me if you have any worries or questions.
