Welcome to Year 6!
WOW what an amazing first term we had in year 6. This year our whole school theme is 'One World' with each term focusing on a different world topic and learning through our new STEAM project, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The project has already been a huge success and we are looking forward to the next stage.
Our Autumn term theme was: 'Reach for the Stars' and the whole term was truly "Out of this world". The children learnt all about space: the moon, astronauts, stars and their constellations, space travel and so much more. They designed, created, wrote, performed, explored and above all thoroughly enjoyed all of the aspects of learning from this theme.

Continuing our work on 'One World', our Spring theme is: 'To the Bottom of the Ocean.' This term we will be looking at the global issue of plastic pollution in our oceans and what can be done to solve it. Year 6 will be focusing on plastic bag pollution:
PLASTIC BAGS ARE USED AN AVERAGE OF 12 MINUTES, BUT A SINGLE BAG HAS A LIFE EXPECTANCY OF UP TO 1000 YEARS
PLASTIC BAGS ARE KILLING OVER 100 000 MARINE ANIMALS AND BIRDS EVERY YEAR.
10% OF ALL DEAD ANIMALS FOUND IN BEACH CLEAN-UPS WERE ENTANGLED IN PLASTIC BAGS.
So what can WE do to reduce the amount of plastic bags in our oceans?
Throughout the term we will be thinking about the above question, researching and designing solutions. See our Spring curriculum map for more details of our learning.
We have lots of other exciting things happening this term. We are going to see a performance of Chicago at Tarporley High School, we will be performing in the AmaSing concert at Storyhouse, and will be working on a 'No Outsiders' project.
