Our topic for the Spring Term 2023 is.......

'Is life Fair?'

 

“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”

Malala Yousafzai

As our year 6’s reach the mid-point of their final year with us, we aim to focus on the mature and enlightening topic of Human Rights. They will research human rights and discover what life is like around the globe, in both rich and poor countries. We will follow in the footsteps of key figures who fought to enlighten and bring about change both in the past and present. Our children will also investigate how the Black Lives Movement has gained momentum and why the time may be ripe for change.

 

We will also be learning about key speeches that have contributed to our changing values, opinions, and attitudes. Consequently, our year 6’s will write their own speeches about what is important to them and what type of world they want to live in. 

 

Using our ICT skills and Survey Monkey, we will carry out market research into healthy lollies and tastes. We will endeavour to sell healthy lollies from our pupil-manned kiosk to fund a legacy from our year 6’s, to the rest of our children at school.

 

Using abstract nouns, we will sculpt clay into a variety of pieces with the theme ‘Emergence’. 

Religion and PSHE will be central strands to this topic as we explore cultural, physical, religious and ethical beliefs and try to determine how we feel about our own evolving personality and beliefs.

 

In science and DT we will be designing new homes for refugees and solar powered water heating systems towards a fairer, brighter future.

 

Our legacy will reflect our views and values on global fairness and realistic rights in the form of an interactive wall containing slogans, poetry, art and logos to share our hopes and dreams for future diversity and equality.

Home Learning 

Every two weeks the children will be introduced to a new home learning challenge. These will be shared with you on Class DoJo. Each question will have a range of suggestions as to how they can share their understanding of each. They can select any way of demonstrating their understanding.

 

Across the term we hope that your child is curious enough to extend and deepen their learning and understanding further. Every two weeks each class will select a winning piece of work that shows innovation, creativity, depth of learning or original thinking.  

 

Please share any of their work on Class DoJo or bring into school with them.
