Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Mr Claridge
Over the course of the Spring term, Year 6 will broaden their horizons and will spend time studying Science and Design & Technology. This will also be interspersed with Bikeability where children will learn to safely ride their bikes and follow the Highway Code.
In science, Year 6 will be learning more about the Human Heart and circulatory system. We will spend some time studying the structure of the heart and learning how the body is able to transport blood, oxygen and nutrients around the body. Once we have developed a better understanding of the heart, children will learn more about what they can do to keep their heart healthy. We will explore the benefits of a healthy life style as well as developing an understanding of the lifestyle choices that we can make that may have an adverse effect on our heart. Through our PE lessons, we will learn more about our pulse rate and will explore what happens to our heart rate when we exercise.
Once the class have completed their enquiry on the heart, we will begin a unit on Design and Technology. Children will be asked to produce a healthy meal that brings in their learning about healthy diets from the science enquiry. As part of the process of creating this meal, children will have to plan a meal, make it and then review the successes and development points for their dishes. We will also explore what different meals can look like when they have to be adapted for particular diets such as Vegan or gluten-free.
Both of these enquiries will provide the children with valuable real-world learning opportunities and will also allow the class to take their learning in their own directions.
