--- Year 6 Curriculum

Welcome to Year 6
Spring term 2019
This term we will be learning all about Electricity.  The children will be creating working circuits. They will be investigating how to change the brightness of a bulb and the volume of a buzzer, as well as drawing circuit diagrams using the correct scientific symbols.
To apply this knowledge, children will be helping the newly reformed ‘Burglar Bill’ to design and make a fully functioning burglar alarm.
Autumn term 2018
In the Autumn term, Year 6 children will be reading the text 'Wonder' by R.J. Palacio. They will use this as inspiration for writing by imagining they are the main character, August Pullman. The children will infer his thoughts and feelings to write a diary from the character's point of view.
In topic, the children will explore injustice. They will research discrimination through history, finding out about how people have been treated differently for their race, gender and beliefs. On World Kindness Day (Saturday 3rd November), they will reflect on how they can be kind. 
 
"When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind."
Summer term 2018
What could you do with £5? The children in Year 6 will be given £5 and challenged to make it grow. They will think of a business idea, develop it and put it into action. Who will make the most money?
