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

Welcome to Year 6.

Miss Hickson and Mrs Black are your teachers in Year 6.

We welcome you to your final year at Bunbury Aldersey Primary school. Whilst we have 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.

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

Our topic for the spring term is 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 through the text.

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) to build our knowledge of the UK and the wider world as Geographers.

In science we will briefly investigate Darwin’s theory of evolution by linking it to Hitler’s view of Social Darwinism before revisiting this topic in the summer. 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 by exploring life during the war.

The first day back will be a whole school Wellbeing and Emotional Heath Day. We will explore this theme through different activities including discussion, drama, PE and art.

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

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