"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit." Aristotle (Greek philosopher and polymath)
Welcome to Year 6
This term our theme is ‘It’s electrifying.’ The children will be learning about electricity, circuits and power. In history we will be discussing “What makes a successful civilisation and do religious beliefs affect this?”. The children will be learning about ancient civilisations - their beliefs and their culture. Thank you for your continued support with the revision guide and spelling homeworks.
Our Big Ideas this term include individual liberty, progress & tradition and we will be talking about whether the religious beliefs of a culture affect the success of that civilisation. We would encourage you to talk to your child about your beliefs and the beliefs held by your family and discuss other beliefs that people living in Didcot may have.
Inspirational people we will be looking at include:
Nikola Tesla - inventor
Aristotle - ancient civilisation philosopher
Carol King - singer/songwriter
Maya Angelou - American poet
