This term, our global theme is ‘Innovation’. Our core text is ‘Hidden Figures’ by Margot Lee Shetterly. This text is based upon the events leading up to America’s first journey into space and the moon landing. Linked to this, we will be exploring the space race between Russia and America in the 1960s. The children will discuss how the theme of innovation is shown through the text and during this significant time.
In Maths, we will be learning about the mathematical concepts of ratio and statistics. This is a vital element of their learning, which they will build upon at secondary school. In addition to this, we will revise and practise previously taught skills so that they are well prepared for year 7.
In Geography, to support our text, we will be looking at the contrasting location of Russia. Through this topic, we will be able to look at the physical and human geographical features of the country. As part of this, we will also learn about the country’s history and customs.
As Year 6 is an important transitional period for our students, we will be spending a lot of time preparing them for their futures at secondary. There will be many activities planned to fully equip them with the necessary skills required to confidently move on to their next phase of learning.
In addition to this, we will be preparing an exciting end of year production. This will allow the children to fully immerse themselves in performance skills and boost their confidence. There will be lots of end of year treats ahead to fully celebrate their time and successes at Coxheath Primary School.
