Year 6 2020 - 2021

Mrs Smith

Year 6 Class Teacher

Welcome back to school and the Autumn Term of Year 6! 


Well, the craziness of the 2019-2020 school year means that it has been a while…

But, don’t worry as we’ll be easing ourselves back in with some wonderful work and by creating some amazing art work based upon the fabulous books:


The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse, written by Charlie Mackesy

We are Here, written by Oliver Jeffers



Once we’ve settled ourselves back into the routine of school (and realised that it isn’t as bad or as worrying as we might have convinced ourselves 😉)...


Our topic for the Autumn term will be:

 ‘Deadly Disease & Medical Marvels’

We will consider the developments in the understanding and treatment of disease throughout time, from prehistory’s whacky witchdoctors through to the significant developments made during the 21st century, and the impact that scientists and scientific progress has had upon our understanding and treatment of illness.

This topic will encourage the children to make links with the previous historical periods studied (such as the Egyptians, the Ancient Greeks and the Victorians) and allow them to understand how scientific understanding and technological advancements allowed treatment and medicine to advance over time.
