Year 6

Year 6 - Miss Jarrett

 

Welcome to Year 6! On our class page you will find lots of information about our class and the work that we are doing.

Our Summer Topic - "From the Depths..."

 

Within our whole school ‘Water’ topic, Year 6 will be immersing themselves in a variety of different themes and learning as we venture ‘From The Depths...’ We begin the term with a mystery text which tells the story of how a particular aquatic mammal came to be. Children will compare stories of creation and beliefs from around the world.  From there, we will submerge ourselves in the greatest naval battles of our time, studying key events including the Battle of Trafalgar, Dunkirk and the D-Day landings as well as researching the different kinds of vessels used in naval warfare. 

We’ll be searching for the creative performers inside ourselves as we prepare our Year 5/6 end of year production ‘A Tribute to the Lion King’.

As intrepid explorers, we’ll traverse through the depths of the wilderness as we go on residential to Folly Farm – a wildlife retreat in Somerset.

Not forgetting that we have a Leavers’ Service to prepare for, we’ll be journeying back through the depths of our brains to write our very own Mickleton Memories (some of us may need to delve a little deeper than others!). For a full Curriculum Overview please see the From the Depths Curriculum Map in the Newsletters section of our Class Page.
