"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 1, ‘What are my rights and responsibilities?’, is geography-based with links to English and R.E. The children will be considering the UN ‘Rights of the Child’ and comparing and contrasting their lives with lives of children in other countries in Europe, Africa and North and South America. In science, children will be learning about ‘Animals including Humans’ in particular about the classification of animals - learning to: describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.
Our Big Ideas: The big ideas Year 6 will be covering this term are: Inspiration, Needs versus Wants and Equality versus Equity.
Our Role Models: Malala Yousafzai, Carl Linneaus, Nelson Mandela and Yusra Mardini.
