Welcome to the Year 6 website page.
Autumn Term 1
This term we will begin by continuing our learning from the transitions days using the book 'The Lost Words' as inspiration. We will be looking at the acrostic poetry in the book and writing our own about sea creatures linked to our next theme of 'Plastic Fantastic?'. We will also be creating watercolour artwork to go with our poetry.
Our next theme 'Plastic Fantastic?' will focus on the effect that plastic is having on our environment. We will be linking this to a letter written by Pope Francis entitled 'Laudato Si'. In DT, we will be designing and making a canvas bag to use instead of plastic bags. We will also be making plastic sculptures out of recycled plastics. Please come back later in the term to see pictures of our learning.
Autumn Term 2
This term we will be looking at structures and forces. We be specifically exploring Isambard Kingdom Brunel and the connection with the bridge local to us. We will be improving our sketching skills and taking a trip to sketch the bridge. In science, we will be learning about the different types of forces and the effects that they have.
