"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" Lau Tzu.

Welcome to Year 6!

Miss Hickson, Mrs Gray and Mrs Walker are your teachers in Year 6.

We welcome you to your final year at Bunbury Aldersey Primary school. Whilst we have lots of fun and enjoy our learning, we will also expect you to work hard and try your best. We expect high standards of work and presentation but are always available should you need to ask about anything.

Timelines: ‘The Nazis are coming – put that light out!’

The whole school topic for the spring term is Timelines and, as part of this, Year 6 will focus on World War II. In our English work, we will visit a variety of genres through different texts and explore the different areas of grammar and punctuation.

In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions before moving on to decimals, percentages and finally measurement.

Through our topic work, we will explore the different aspects within World War II. In History, we will start with the chronology of events before moving on to life on the Home Front. After this, we will investigate other areas of the war from evacuees to propaganda to the Holocaust. As artists, we will be looking at the work of World War II artist and sculptor Henry Moore. In DT, we will learn about key events and individuals in WW2 which have shaped our lives whilst also discussing rationing and the origins of food. Additionally, we will look at using 4 and 6 figure grid references, symbols and keys (including the use of Ordance Survey maps) as Geographers.

In science, we will briefly link Darwin’s theory of evolution to Hitler’s view of Social Darwinism. Secondly, we will focus on our topic of light which will include looking at the blackouts in London. We will also investigate the impact of lifestyle on the way our body functions whilst identifying and naming the main parts of the human circulatory system by exploring life during the war.

Our Spring term topic web below provides an overview of what we will be learning across all areas of the curriculum.

We ask that you always have your PE kit in school although our timetabled days are Tuesday and Friday.

I am looking forward to another exciting term with you all.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me!
