English

 

Let's dive into some adventure in the land of Mr Men and Little Miss! As part of our narrative unit, you will be writing your own adventure story based on the Mr Men and Little Miss books by Roger Hargreaves. Exciting times lie ahead as you develop your own character! In our Non-fiction unit you will be exploring biographical texts and non-chronological reports.

This unit will provide plenty of opportunities for active learning and lots of fun facts .We will end the unit by investigating healthy eating, and finding out what can be harmful to our bodies. 

 

RE

Story of the People of God. In this unit you will be given opportunities to develop your knowledge and understanding of the structure of the Bible and the forms of literature that are found in the different books. You will be introduced to stories of significant people in the Old Testament such as Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel and Moses.

Followers of Christ. What a great unit to help us prepare for Confirmation this year! We will consider the call of the disciples by Jesus. You will learn about the demands that the call of Christ placed on these first disciples and you will think about ways in which people answer the call of Christ today through the life of the Church.

Advent. In this unit you will explore the two parts of the Season of Advent. A time to prepare for Christ to come again and a time to prepare to celebrate his birth at Christmas. Through some Parables of Jesus, a year 6 liturgy and some of the prayers and hymns of the Church you will explore these themes.

 

Geography:

Through our ‘Let’s Blow Something Up’ theme, you will discover more about the make-up of the Earth and find out about its different layers. You will learn about tectonic plates and how volcanoes are formed. Using atlases and world maps, you will locate volcanoes around the world and discover the ring of fire.

 

Art:

No it isn't the Ice Age, but we are huddling up in our caves and communicating with cave paintings! As we discover more about the different periods of the Stone Age, you will explore mixing techniques and collage effects to create a picture of the very famous, very mysterious and very, very old Stonehenge.

Through our continuing ‘Let’s Blow Something Up’ theme, you will learn about the artist Margaret Godfrey and create pictures of the inside of volcanoes in her particular style.

 

History

Flinstones, meet the Flinstones, they're the modern Stone Age family. From the town of Bedrock, they're a page right out of history! We're heading all the way back to the Savage Stone Age right the way through to the Iron Age. In this fascinating topic we will have heated class debates about the reliability of evidence, and create caveman art in classroom caves!

 

PE

Get ready to work as a team and jump...you are going to be learning volleyball skills. Get those feet moving and enjoy our Stone Age dance too!

Games
