Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!


This is going to be a fun and exciting year for you all. As well as all the exciting topics we have planned, there is also the residential and end of year celebrations to look forward to. Although this is an important year with lots of hard work over the coming months, we know that you will also have a brilliant time!


This term, we will look at two new topics, ‘The English Civil War’ and ‘Ancient Greece’. You will find out about the causes and events of the English Civil War, culminating in an end-of-unit visit to the National Civil War Centre in Newark. During this visit, you will experience what life was really like during the English Civil Wars, dressing up as a soldier, learning a pike drill and examining some real 17th century objects! We’re really looking forward to this topic!


In Autumn 2, you will study ‘Ancient Greece’ where you will look at Greek gods, the origins of the Olympics and take an in-depth look at some gruesome battles! We can’t wait to get started!
