Autumn Term

Our topic for this term is The Fantastic Voyage. We will be learning about many aspects of life and survival during the Stone Age including their clothing, housing, craftsmanship, hunting, diet and communication. We will be creating our own Stone Age jewellery as well as our own 'cave art'.

Additionally, we will be reading the exceptional 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver as our class text this term, experiencing the trials and tribulations (and tribes) of the Stone Age through the eyes of a young, orphaned boy who goes by the name of Torak.


Autumn Term homework and spellings:

Spring Term

Our topic for this term is Natural Disasters. We will be learning about the different natural disasters that occur around the world such as earthquakes and tsunamis. From creating our own volcanoes to building a quake resistant shelter, we explore the wild world we live in.  

A firm favourite with our Year 6s, the text we study this term is Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We follow the adventures of Michael as he sets off on a tour of the world. 

Summer Term

Our topic this term is The Home Front where we will be learning about life during WW2 in Britain. Our learning journey will explore life as an evacuee, The Blitz and WW2 initiatives such as Dig For Victory. Our class text this term will be Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian, where we will explore the turbulent life of evacuee William Beech. 

One thing is for certain.. Summer term looks destined to be a whole lot of fun!
