Year 6 Learning

Roman Coin

Autumn Term

The children will begin by writing speeches to persuade the other children in their colour house to vote for them as house captains.  We are excited about videoing our speeches.

Our main topic centres around the Roman invasion and settlement of Britain.  As well as history, this topic will also provide much of the content for our English, Geography and Art work this term.

In Science we will learn about evolution and inheritance, with a special focus on the life and work of Charles Darwin.

We will be learning about Shakespeare and the pupils will be taking part in a drama workshop.

Spring Term


In the Spring Term we have an exciting Art topic in which we will be learning all about the life and work of Pablo Picasso, with a special focus on his portrait work.

In Science we will be learning all about the human body.  We will begin by finding out about James Lind and his clinical trial to find a cure for scurvy.  We will then learn all about the functions of the circulatory system and keeping healthy through diet and exercise.   

During this term we will be working hard to prepare for the KS2 SATs, as these are an important focus for our Year 6 pupils.

Pablo Picasso

Summer Term

Our main topic this term is all about the Maya Civilisation and in addition to our work in history, some of our Art, Geography and English work will also be inspired by this topic.

Our Science work will be based on the physical processes of Light and Electricity - with an emphasis on renewable and non-renewable energy.

At the end of the year we will focus on transition and preparations for our Leavers' Assembly.
