Hello and Welcome to Year 6!
In year 6, we are taught by Mrs Smith, Miss Hetherington and Mrs Watson. Supporting us in class are Mrs Purvis and Mr Curd..
Autumn Term 2021
This term, our topic in year 6 is South America. We will be looking at the countries and climate of the 4th biggest continent on Earth, as well as the human and physical features. Then we will step inside the Amazon Rainforest and look at the layers and the animals within. In science we will be classifying animals and looking at the work of Carl Linnaeus. We are keeping the animal theme going in art where we will be sketching animals of the rainforest and adding layers and tone using charcoal and pastels. Keep an eye out for our amazing work!
