Invade, Raid, Stayed! The Vikings! Spring Term 1

 

In Spring 1, Year 6 will be studying the Vikings. We will learn who they were and where they settled; where they travelled and the similarities and differences between Viking and Ancient Greek warfare. In Science, we are looking at Evolution and Inheritance, including the exciting task of designing our own dogs! In Computing we will be using TinkerCAD to create 3D models, and in RE we are deepening our understanding of Judaism. In Art, we will be making colleges linked to Viking longboats.

Keep Calm and Carry On!: Autumn Term

 

In Autumn, our topic will be about World War 2, a real favourite within school – it is linked to a local history study where we will learn about how the industrial estate at Yeadon Airport was used to build Lancaster bombers; how Thwaite Mills made putty to help with the war effort and the visit of Winston Churchill to Leeds.

 

We will make air-raid shelters in DT and we will be learning about light in our Science topic linked to the blackout. We will create art work based on The Blitz and look at what life was like for people living through the war. In Computing, we will be learning about communication through the internet.

 

After half term, we will be learning about the human body in Science and we will design and

make pizzas for our Christmas party. In Computing, we will be learning how to use computers to do 3D modelling.

Towards Christmas we will be involved in lots of different festive activities!

In light of COP26, Year 6 have been considering the impact of climate change on our world. We looked at the impact human activity causes in the following six areas: Food and farming, Oceans, Forests, Energy, Travel and Transport and Health and Happiness and considered possible solutions to reduce the human impact on our world. The children chose one of those six areas to create a poster and then presented the information to the class. Please use the pause button if you want to examine a poster more closely.
