Clockwork

This term we have been studying Clockwork by Phillip Pullman. It is a very dark and mysterious novel set in Germany. It ticks along and the strands all tie together with more than a few tense and suspenseful moments along the way. From the story we have written a diary entry, had a big debate and discussion about the demise of one of the main characters and stepped into the shoes of another character who had a huge decision to make.

 

Evolution and Inheritance

Year 6 children have enjoyed their science topic of evolution and inheritance. We have journeyed back in time millions of years and the children have found out why fossils are so important to give scientists a window into the past. We even made our own fossils. To end the unit we ‘interviewed’ Charles Darwin about his groundbreaking findings.

 

Curriculum plans

Below are Long, Medium Term Plans and Parental Overviews which are followed closely by class teachers. Skills and Knowledge for each subject have been planned carefully by subject leaders for progression across the school.

We are constantly improving the curriculum to match the needs of the children in each year group so some plans may be subject to change.
