"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 using their knowledge in a timeline, building on their knowledge of the previous historical eras they have studied. In science, children will be learning about light, building on their learning from Year 3. In English we will be preparing a balanced argument, where the children will be working on their ability to control their formality throughout a piece of writing, and use cohesive devices to guide the reader.
Big Ideas: Citizenship, tolerance, resilience
Inspirational People we will be looking at include:
Albert Einstein - German-born theoretical physicist
Dalai Lama - highest spiritual leader of Tibet
Estee Lauder -American businesswoman. She co-founded her eponymous cosmetics company
Tyler Perry - American actor, director, producer and screenwriter.
