Year Six

The children will explore the theme of social injustice and equity through noticing people’s differences and exploring the impact that preconceived ideas will have on attitudes and behaviours of themselves and others. They will look at The Vikings and Anglo Saxons in history and look at how Danelaw was introduced and the effects that this had on the nation at the time. Their science learning around the human body and how relationships develop will help drive the discussion and debate. They will have the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge to make a change in their school and a wider community scale.

In English, we will be reading a core text called “Pig Heart Boy” by Malorie Blackman. The book follows the story of a thirteen-year-old boy – Cameron - who needs a heart transplant and explores the moral and ethical dilemmas posed by him receiving a heart from an animal. The children shall be writing their own newspaper reports based on the ground-breaking experiment as well as writing a third-person narrative from the perspective of Cameron’s best friend, Marlon. In order to develop their oracy skills, they will then write and perform their own internal monologues.

In maths, the children will investigate real life problems via continuing focusing on creating their very own theme park. The children will need to use everything they have learnt so far, inclusive of addition, subtraction, percentages of amounts, long and short division, multiplication and fractions of amounts, as well as implementing our Elaine core values to ensure they are successful in making the best theme park within budget!

In art, we will be studying the work of Leonardo Da Vinci and different anatomists to create our outcome of a 3D model of a heart.

In history, we will be learning all about the Vikings and Anglo Saxons through a hands on learning experience involving lots of practical activities.

In PE, we will be learning dance skills in indoor PE and athletic skills in outdoor PE.

In RE, we will be learning about the Sikh community and how they help other people.

In science, we will be learning about the human circulatory system.  This will involve hands on learning opportunities such as dissection of a heart and making “blood”.
