Welcome to our final term of Year 6! We have a busy term ahead and lots to look forward to!
This term we will be studying evolution and inheritance, focusing our studies on Charles Darwin and his trip to the Galapagos Islands on the HMS Beagle. We will be looking at ways in which species have adapted in order to survive and also ways in which we need to keep ourselves safe.
We will be visiting the Warning Zone activity centre in Leicester to learning all about potential dangers in the real world and how we can keep ourselves safe. We will also be participating in a substance misuse workshop to learn about the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
Below you will find an overview for the term with information regarding the focus for each subject as well as the key vocabulary we will be using this term.
Spellings for the term are also posted below and the children will continue to be tested each Friday using the spellings we have logged in our Read Write Inc logbooks.
Please do check our page regularly to see what we have been up to in Year 6.

Why did Oliver ask for more?
Year 6 have worked hard this term with our visiting music teacher to learn songs from Oliver and The Pirates of Penzance. The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and made all of us proud with their efforts.
We have had some excellent examples of My Style homework this term and have proudly displayed them in our classroom. The examples included a model mine, a telephone that Alexander Graham Bell invented, a typewriter which was invented in 1878, an X ray machine and print examples inspired by William Morris.

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too.
This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
