Autumn term 2021

Welcome back everyone and welcome to Year 6! There is plenty of exciting and thought-provoking learning that will happening this term and let's not forget our camping trip in September.


Here are the highlights of what our learning will cover this half term:



We will be reading The Other Side of Truth by Beverley Naidoo and much of our writing will be linked to this text.



This half term Ospreys will be deepening their knowledge and application of numbers up to ten million as well as multiplication and division.

Curriculum topic: Who has the right to belong to a community?

Focus: Geography, Science and DT


In this topic, we will be exploring human migration, with a particular focus on those who migrate from Africa. We will begin by understanding what we mean by migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, the stigmas attached to this group of people. We will look at the reasons why people move away from their country of origin (particularly some specific African countries) and lead on to how we can positively impact their lives once they begin to integrate into a new community. 


In Science, we will be learning about classification of living things, including microorganisms.
