What do we get up to in Year 6?
What a year it has been so far in Year 6. We had an amazing Autumn Term exploring 1940s Britain in our super topic finding out about WWII titled 'Your Country Needs You!'. We have now embarked upon our next journey through in Spring Theme which is focussing on the world of LEGO. The children are really excited about our Blockbusters theme! Please read below to find out more information.
Your Country Needs You!
It's the Autumn term so to begin the year in style we are starting with our WWII topic titled, 'Your Country Needs You!'
Throughout this term children will be transported back into 1939 to experience just what it was like to live during WWII. They experience life as an evacuee and will have the chance to go on their first trip of the year to Winchcombe station. During this trip children will speak to real evacuees and well as ride on a real steam train and explore WWII artefacts.
We are all looking forward to this amazing journey and can't wait to see just what work the children will produce.
After an exciting Autumn Term we have now started our new theme titled, 'Blockbusters'. Throughout the term we will be investigating the history behind the global product of LEGO as well as incorportaing it into our creative writing and problem solving in maths. Children will also have the chance to work with electronics and mechanics in product design and will even get the chance to be taught by a robotics engineer for the day.
As well as this we will be visiting LEGOLAND resort Windsor where children will see for themselves just how the global company has developed. They will also have the opportunity to explore forces and motion in a puposefully-designed workshop.
