Year 6

075 073


The Teacher in Year 6 is Mr Golding and the Teaching Assistants  is Mrs Brown.

Year 6 is the final year at Scared Heart School so it is no surprise that some of the most fantastic things happen this year.

During the Autumn term, we will look at countries of the world.  We will learn how to make and read maps as well as use them to navigate.  We will create art work inspired by the different countries around the world and learn about some of their main environmental regions.  In Science we will learn how to classify creatures and all about healthy lifestyle and the human body.

In Spring, we will study volcanoes and earthquakes.  We will learn about plate tectonics and make some of our own volcanoes.  We will look closely at the history of one area in Rochdale and hopefully go on an investigatory school trip.  We will focus on evolution and light in science.  We will learn how different creatures have a adapted to their environments light travels (enabling us to see).

In the Summer term, Year 6 will be looking at the Victorian and Roman periods of history; answering the question of who left the greater legacy in Rochdale.  We will learn how to read, compose and perform music on the glockenspiel.  In science, we will be learning about electricity; creating our own circuits and motorised cars.  Year 6 will prepare for their residential trip to Robinwood this term.  Robinwood will be an amazing experience in which the children will have a great opportunity to complete activities they may have never done before.  It is a lot of fun and a brilliant way to end the year as a team.
