The Year Six Curriculum

Autumn Term

Our topic for this term is Evolution. We will be learning about many aspects of life and survival during the Stone Age period all the way through to the Iron Age.  

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.



Spring Term

Our topic for the first part of Spring 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. 


For the second part of this term, our topic is The Battle of Britain where we will be answering the enquiry question: Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important? Our class text this term will be Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, where we will explore the turbulent life of young Jewish girl Ellen and her best friend Anne-Marie.

Summer Term

This term, we continue to delve into the causes and consequences of WWII, with a particular focus around local history. Children will visit Seaford Museum, explore past maps of Seaford and hear true stories from local people about what Seaford was like during WWII. This will support children in answering the term's enquiry question: How did life in Seaford change during the Second World War?
