Welcome to Year 6!
Our first topic, which we will be looking at throughout the autumn term, is World War Two. We'll start by looking at the timeline of the war and discussing all of the major events from the declaration of war to its conclusion. We'll study, in greater depth, key events such as evacuation, the Blitz, D-Day and rationing. In science, the focus will be on electricity and sound, so we will be making our own Morse Code Machines! For PE, we'll be taking our hockey to the next level by building on the skills we learnt in year 5 and putting them to use in some more competitive situations. Our focus in art will be on the use of shading to add detail to our work, making use of sketching pencils, charcoal and pastels.
As part of the topic, year 6 will also be visiting the Davidstow War Museum and the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum. Look out for photos below!
