Welcome to Year 6
Teaching Staff Year 6
In Their Footsteps…
In the Autumn term we will be looking at the Great War and what was happening in the local area 100 years ago as it began. We shall be finding out about the lives of people who went to fight and the significance of Cannock Chase as well as exploring different aspects of the war from 1914 to 1918.
Facing the Challenge!
As we strive to do our best this term, ready for our SATs, we will be discovering more about people who inspire us through their achievements. We will be setting our own challenges and looking at individuals and groups who aimed to conquer the highest point on the planet – Everest!
During the Summer Term we will be exploring our capital city – looking at the diversity it contains and focusing on the importance of the Thames. In Literacy we will look at the work of Shakespeare and Dickens, considering the changes the city has seen over time.
Through all of our curriculum, we teach pupils British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principles and advice found in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016’ and the 2015 ‘Prevent duty’.
These are incorporated into our school policy on tackling extremism.
