Growing Excellence, Inspiring Success

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit." Aristotle (Greek philosopher and polymath)

Welcome to Year 6

Our topic for term 3 is, ‘Thinking Outside the Box’ and the children will be learning about the impact of inventions and predicting what life might be like in the future. The children will be comparing different historical periods and displaying their knowledge on a timeline, building on their knowledge of the previous historical eras they have studied. In Science, children will be learning about light, developing their learning from Year 3. In English, we will be preparing an information text and working on the ability to control formality throughout a piece of writing, using cohesive devices to guide the reader. In History, we will be looking at different inventions throughout time, analysing the significance of each and whether they were important for recent inventions.

Inspirational people we will be looking at include:

  • Tine Bech - light art sculptor - represented in the European Capital of Culture program in her project which explored how light art and technology could be used to connect cities.
  • Richard Turere - Kenyan inventor - inventor of ‘lion lights’ to help keep livestock safe.
  • Jody Cunde OBE - World and paralympian - first GB paralympian to win medals in seven games.
