Our topics in Year 6
Frozen Kingdom A Child's War Hola Mexico! London How Migration Shaped Bradford
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands- vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Follow in the footsteps of Earnest Shackleton and trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an artic fox; hunting rodents and swift as the wind! Research facts and figures or climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems and think hard about ways to save our incredible tundra biome from the effects of climate change.
So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire!

We will continue to strengthen our arithmetic skills at the start of each maths lesson and complete paper copies of Timetable Rockstars twice weekly.
