Year 6 Curriculum 

To start the year, Year 6 were treading very carefully on the hunt for dinosaurs as part of their ‘Jurassic Park’ topic. The children wrote up non chronological reports on existing dinosaurs and some persuasive letters to the head of Jurassic Park in a bid to get their very own dinosaur a place in the park. In maths the children used their knowledge of number to budget and come up with their very own dinosaur safari park. In Geography they are learnt about how all the continents were formed from the super continent Pangea.

For Autumn 2 Year have been looking at the topic 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 by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.

To celebrate their learning and to see animal adaptations up close the class took part in a scavenger hunt at London Zoo. We got to see some camouflage with the tigers and zebras, animals with adaptations to suit extremely hot climates and some very intelligent primates! 

Year 6 start the Spring term looking back on events of WW2. A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover. It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears. Make do and mend. Cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’

 

The class started this topic with an amazing trip to the R.A.F museum where they were able to see planes that were used in the Battle of Britain by both the R.A.F and German Luftwaffe. They also got to take part in amazing workshop finding out what it would have been like to be at school during The Blitz, even taking part in a air raid drill!
