Year 6 2021 - 2022
Year 6 Class Teacher
Year 6 – Summer Term
Our topic for the Summer Term will be:
In Year 6, we will be learning all about the fascinating country that we live in! We will begin by building upon our understanding of how the economic change and social reform that occurred after WWII influenced the rebuilding of industrial Manchester.
We will then recap how the United Kingdom is organised into: countries; counties; and then cities. We will then go on to learn about the physical geographical features of Great Britain, such as: population; life expectancy; the tallest mountains; the longest rivers; the longest coastline; what natural resources Britain has.
We will also consider the ways in which we use the land in Britain and we will look at what natural resources we use to produce energy and what renewable natural resources we use. We will also look at how products such as concrete, glass, wood and steel are produced and traded around the world.
We will then navigate towards an understanding of rivers, their uses, features and effect on the environment. We will find out how rivers are formed, explore the journey of a river from source to mouth, investigate why rivers are important and what they are used for, river pollution and its effects, as well as choosing a river around the world to investigate in depth.
