In the Autumn term, Year 6 take a look at a topic they know well – Themselves! We spend our Literacy time reading and writing autobiographies. As well as this we look at the lives of well-known historical figures including Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, Michael Rosen and Roald Dahl. In Art the children create self-portraits and use these as illustrations to our Biography work.
In mathematics we continue our learning by practicing our operations, number knowledge, shape and measure and applying these to investigations and problems.
In Science the children look at electricity and forces, linking this into work with DT to create vehicles.
In R.E. the children look at the lives of Jewish people and we look at the many Jewish festivals that occur over the Autumn and Winter.
The children spend the Autumn term playing tag rugby in P.E. and as the weather gets colder head out onto the ice at Canary Wharf for skating sessions.
