Year 6 2019-20
Learning Support Assistant
Welcome to Year 6, the final year!
We begin the year with our topic, ‘World at War’. During this topic pupils will learn about life during WWII. Evacuation, the Blitz, rationing and the life of Walter Tull, are just some of the areas covered in this topic.
As the weather becomes colder, we study the topic, Frozen Kingdom, in the Spring term. As part of this topic, pupils will learn about Shackleton’s epic expedition to the Antarctic, as well as the Antarctic and Arctic Circle, climate zones and climate change.
The final year of primary school is a period of great opportunity for the children. As role models for the younger pupils, they take on increasing responsibility, e.g., tuck monitors and Year 1 morning helpers. They are expected to show growing independence and maturity as they prepare for transition to secondary school, both in their learning and when participating in exciting events such as the Year 6 ‘Enterprise Project’, part of their final topic, ‘Building Futures.’
