Year 6 – Curriculum (Teacher Mr Haslam)
Welcome back to your final year at Lower Peover, I hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are feeling refreshed and raring to go! I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year!
As you are now Year 6, you will be faced with many new challenges and responsibilities, which I know you will all work hard to succeed in. We will obviously have important challenges such as SATs and the transition to High School, but rest assured, that as a class, we will work together to make these experiences fun and exciting!
We have some fantastic themes to study in Year 6. Firstly, we will start with ‘The Aztecs & Mayan civilisations’, where we will look at their way of life and traditions, but be warned some of them are a little gruesome! Next, we will be looking at Charles Dickens, with a particular focus on his book, ‘A Christmas Carol’. This is a fantastic piece of literature with lots of opportunities for creative writing, art and drama. After Christmas, our theme will be ‘The Industrial Age’. During this topic, we will visit the Lion Salt Works to inspire us with our work! Our residential trip to Manor Adventure will also take place during the first term.
During the Easter term, our topic ‘The Magnificent World’ will be where we begin our SATs Grammar & Punctuation revision through two really exciting books – to be revealed nearer the time. We will be learning all about the key aspects of rivers, mountains and the water cycle, amongst other things.
Our last term is a very busy one, beginning with our final theme, ‘Our Capital’.
We will also have our school production, our leavers’ service at Chester Cathedral and our school leavers’ service to look forward to.
See you all in September!
