    Year 6 Project, Spring 1 term 2021: World War II

  • What’s the big idea?

    What’s the big idea?

    What defines a successful leader? How are individuals able to become so powerful? We will be looking at the causes of the Second World War, and the effects that this event had on different countries around the world

  • What will we be learning?


    We will be able to:

    • Find out about aspects of the past from a range of sources

    We will know:

    • What led to the beginning of World War II.

    We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  How some aspects of the past have been represented and interpreted in different ways.


    We will know:

    • About ways in which the lives of people in the countries we have studied affect each other.
    • About similarities and differences between the lives of people in different countries in the past.

    We will be able to:

    • Identify ways in which people work together for mutual benefit.
  • Knowledge Organiser

    We use a knowledge organiser for every project in every year group. It is a helpful way for children and families to see the key knowledge that children will learn. This key knowledge helps the children ask more questions and then find out more information.

    It would be helpful to talk with your child about this knowledge organiser. As the project develops, they will be able to share more knowledge. Thank you!

  • Maths

    Please help your child to know all of the times tables facts up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts.

    We will also be working hard on:

    • Decimals; percentages; algebra; converting units; area and perimeter.
  • English
    • We will be learning how to write: diary entries, letters and persuasive texts.
    • We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: spelling rules involving suffixes and prefixes, and adverbial phrases showing time, manner and place
  • Year 6 Notes & Dates

    School day:

    The Year 6 school day starts at 8.45am. Your child needs to enter school through the main gate and walk through the KS2 playground. Staff will direct your child.

    All adults dropping off or picking up children must wear face masks from now on. Thank you. Please ensure you stay two metres away from other families.

    Your child needs to be collected from the KS2 playground at 3.15pm, unless they walk home alone. If your child can walk home alone, please fill out the form that you can collect from the office (this includes those children who walked home alone last year).

    School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt and trainers. All children will come to school wearing PE kit on their PE days.

    Year 6 PE day is Monday. Wyvern 1 need swimming kit on Tuesdays and Wyvern 2 on Fridays.

    Swimming lessons will start on Tuesday 11th January for Wyvern One, and Friday 14th January for Wyvern Two.
