Year 6 Spring Term Curriculum - Mother Nature and Her Earth
Ever been stranded on a desert island? Ever wondered why it's so hot in some countries but not in others? Well Year 6 are going to spend this term exploring Mother Nature and Her Earth alongside reading Michael Morpurgo's captivating novel 'Kensuke's Kingdom'. Throughout the term we will explore a range of geography from Longitude and Latitude to coastal erosion giving our children to see the world like they never have done before. In Art, we will take inspiration from our focus text and created some amazing sketches whilst in Science we will delve deeper into the world of Light. There really is so much to be learning so everyday will be jam packed! Not to forget that VERY exciting trip to Young Voices coming up to show off our singing skills and also a special trip to the great outdoors to learn more about bushcraft and survival skills - Just like Michael in our book!
It's going to be so much fun Year 6!
