Junior School

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!



During term 3, the children will be studying the topic 'Volatile Earth'. In this topic, the children will understand the geographical causes of natural disasters and their impact on the landscape and their people. They will also find out where volcanoes are in the world and explore the impact of volcanic activity on humans and the environment.  At the end of this term, y6 will also enjoy our incredible residential visit to London where the children will visit parliament, a range of museums and see The Lion King on the West End! 
During term 4, our topic is 'A Voyage of Discovery' and we learn all about the life and work of Charles Darwin. They will understand how adaptions can lead to evolution via an imaginary voyage involving letters, explanations, note taking, recounts and discussions. 


Maths and spelling homework will be set each week. It is always set and due in every Monday. Each term, your child will also be set a challenge to produce some independent research on their topic. They can produce this work in any way they wish (for example a poster or a leaflet). We politely ask that they do not bring their work into school on a memory stick.
