Year Six is the final year in Key Stage Two; we use cross-curricular projects in which subjects overlap to reinforce and compliment each other. Each project is planned carefully to meet the needs and capabilities of the child. We aim to develop the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes necessary for your child's whole development. We embrace 'Learning Without Limits' where children are not put into boxes but are given the space to grow and to surprise themselves (and us) about what they can achieve.
Children are also expected to know the following spellings:

Term 5/6 - People of the Caribbean
Our project this term is, 'People of the Caribbean'. We will be exploring the culture of the Caribbean islands and looking into their history. Our key concept is 'fairness and justice' and we will be asking the question, 'Do we live in a fair world?' We will kick off our Caribbean learning with a colourful, Caribbean Carnival day where we will be tasting different Caribbean fruits, doing calypso dance, artwork and designing and making our own fruit smoothies!
Term 3/4 - Change...for Life!
Our project this term is, 'Change for Life!' The children will be exploring changes that occur in life on earth in a variety of different ways - starting off with evolution and how we can find out information from the past. We will also then be looking at inheritence (including human traits), changes in life-cycles, how cycles in our bodies work - such as the circulatory system and how to stay fit and healthy!
'FOSSIL HUNTERS' WOW DAY!'
We started this term by delving into the past and becoming paleontologists for the day! We studied fossils closely to identify different types of fossils (even a genuine fossil of parts of a triceratops' bone!), created information posters about how fossils are formed and created our own mold and cast fossils. We will be excavating our own fossil next week!
WELCOME BACK! YEAR 6 2021-22
Welcome to our Year 6 class page and a brand new school year! The children return on Monday September 6th where they will start their journey in Year 6 - we are so excited about all the new experiences and responsibilities that they will have! These include: Year R Buddies, Year Six Camp, a trip to the Life Skills Centre in Bristol, sitting on the benches in the hall in worship (very important!), being CREW worship leaders, an awesome term 6 dramatic performance, a visit to Wells Cathedral and the opportunity to stand for House Captain and Vice Captain!
The first week back will be our induction week where we will create class contracts and revisit expectations of learning and behaviour. We will be basing all of our learning for this first week, entitled 'What's in a picture?' around a specific painting. The week will end with our Ancient Greek Wow Day to launch our Term One project!
All messages and displays of work will be sent through our ClassDojo system. This is where you can get in contact to ask questions, see children's learning and stay up-to-date with everything that is happening in Year 6 and in the school.
