  LEARNING IN ACTION

PE

Year 6 children will have two sessions of PE each week. Please ensure the children have all their PE kit , including tracksuits and trainers, suitable for both indoor and outdoor lessons.  We will also be continuing the 'daily mile' into our daily routine so try to remember some trainers every day.

ART/DESIGN TECHNOLOGY

At the start of the term, we will be finishing off our slippers and refining our sewing skills. Once complete, we will be exploring a range of structures and applying our knowledge to design and create a small model of a wind turbine. We will hopefully be able to measure how much electricity then can generate too. 

ICT

We will continue our unit on spread sheets in the spring term and use our skills across the curriculum to analyse data from our science work.

RE

Throughout the year the children will be focusing on two main religions in religious education lessons - Christianity and Hinduism. They will learn about the festivals, religious practices, explore their own beliefs and discuss key questions in depth with their peers. In the first half of the autumn term we will be exploring how Hindus show commitment to their religion and how this may influence their daily life.

 

SCIENCE

In science, we will be learning all about electrical circuits and in our lessons will be busy testing lots of hypotheses.  We will then use this to help us when we build our wind turbines.

 

HISTORY/GEOGRAPHY

 In geography, we are going to be finding out about energy sources - renewable and non-renewable. We will also explore the distribution of energy sources around the world . Our history unit is all bout the Battle of Newbury and the civil war.
