Educating the Whole Child

Year 6

Autumn Term 2

This half term Year 6 have been engrossed in learning about climate change. We have learned about the causes of global warming, and how we can all do our bit at home to be greener! We have also been studying the scientist Darwin and his theory of evolution. Did you know that animals have adapted to their environments to be able to survive? In our final week of the term, we designed and made our own pizzas! We thought very carefully about the design and purpose of our pizza and then planned and made it from scratch.

Autumn Term 1

Windsor Castle Trip

Year 6 have had a very busy first half term with all of our new learning. As part of our kings and queens topic, we visited Windsor Castle to understand history of the British monarchy. While there, we took part in a workshop called monarchy through the ages where we learned about different kings and queens and the history of Windsor Castle. We also learned how the Magna Carter was created and why. After this, we toured Windsor castle and were VERY LUCKY to get to visit the Queen’s final resting place in St George’s chapel, along with Prince Philip and her parents. We hope the children have a fabulous half term and look forward to welcoming them back for Autumn two, ready to learn about Climate Change!
