Welcome to Ms Pateman's class!
Our topic this Autumn Term is called 'Blast From the Past' and is centred around the experiences of children during World War II. Year 6 can already say how and why WWII began and they understand what 'Dunkirk spirit' means. We will now go on to look at famous historical events such as The Battle of Britain and to find out what happened to children in the cities when the Blitz bombing began. In science we have started to think about Light and Sight and problems in the blackout; In DT we will begin to carry out strength and water resistance tests on materials as we plan our own air raid shelters for a Lego figure; In RE we will learn about the Jewish faith and link this to history through thinking about the kinder transport; in art we will be making detailed sketches of the aircraft involved in The Battle of Britain.
Our computing areas this half term are coding and online safety and our PSHE will be centred around knowing that there are universal rights for all children and Year 6 stepping up to their responsibilities as the oldest pupils in the school.
PE will be gymnastics (indoor on Tuesdays) and games (outdoor on Fridays). Once swimming restarts our Year 6 slot is Thursday mornings.
