During autumn term, we're going to be writing a range of different pieces linked to our topic of WW2. We will begin with a description of the D-Day Landings using a video stimulus named - Beyond the Lines. This will allow the children to showcase stylistic features of writing in order to create emotion, empathy and an atmosphere for the reader.
Next, we will be using our book - Letters from the Lighthouse to write a letter from the point of view of an evacuee. This will allow the children to really delve into what it would've been like to experience such a tormenting time within history.
During this term, we will be studying 'Crime and Punishment', with the focus on how crime and punishment has changed and developed through the years. We began our topic off with a crime scene investigation - Year 6 were turned into CSI: Beeston Fields for the day, donning disposable gloves and shoe covers as they took their time investigating a range of crime scenes; piecing together evidence; making inferences and concluding what they found.
This term in Year 6, we will be having a look at a range of environmental and ecological issues that are affecting our planet and how we can work together to stop climate change. Our focus will begin with rainforests - thinking about deforestation, biodiversity and pollution.
