Spring 2023 - "True Crime"
This theme focuses on researching and examining historical records in relation to the trials of witches in the 17th century. The children will also think about how stereotypes are created through the media and how we are influenced by the information available to us.
Autumn 2022 - Spring 2023 - "Global Warning"
This seven week, geography based theme will explore what humans are doing which is impacting on the future of our planet. The theme will involve a visit to a recycling centre and research regarding how we improve sustainability both as individuals and organisations.
Autumn 2022 - "Go With The Flow"
This short, science based theme will give the children the opportunity to think about their bodies, in terms of their organs, especially their digestive system and their circulatory system. They will look at the heart works and also consider what they need to do to keep healthy. We have arranged for a representative form West Mercia Police to come in to school, during the Spring Term, to discuss the affects of drugs and alcohol on the body, which also forms part of this theme.
Autumn 2022 - "A World of Bright Ideas"
We are starting the year with “A World of Bright Ideas”, which focuses on the creative process of invention and design throughout history.
Within the theme, we will look at important inventions and inventors over time, before moving on to learning about more current issues such as patenting and copyright. The children will also have the opportunity to actively engage in the design and making process as they look at the steps involved in generating a concept to producing a commercially viable product in the name of “Enterprise”.
Enterprise will continue to underpin our work throughout Year 6 and the class will have the chance to meet several local business professionals over the next few months as well as visit different businesses.
As part of our “A World of Bright Ideas”, we will also be developing the children’s understanding of electricity; how it has transformed our lives; how circuits are adapted and changed; and how we are adapting to more sustainable production of electrical power.
