Y6 Information for Parents


Welcome to Year Six!

The Y6 team is Mr Goodwin, Mr Mills, Mr Percy and Mrs Dungworth.   As the oldest children in Dore Primary, there are very high expectations that the Y6s are excellent role models to other children, and fine ambassadors for the school.  Y6 children are given many responsible roles in and around the school and our community.
 
We'll Meet Again

Our first topic of the year is based on World War II. We look at evacuees, rationing, the Sheffield Blitz and the causes of the war. Children get the chance to make a war time propaganda jingle, go on an historical visit and create their own item of 'make do and mend' clothing.
 
 
 
  
 
On The Edge

Have you ever wanted to climb Mount Everest?  Well in this topic, you will!  We learn about the geographical features and formations of mountains and make shelters that can withstand extreme conditions (hopefully!).  Children research a mountain range in depth and present their findings in the form of a PowerPoint to the rest of the class. We also speak to a mountain climber to find out about their own experiences. 
 
 

 


ConquistaDOREs

Children find out about the history and culture of the Aztec society. Why did the Aztecs make sacrifices? Who were the main Gods? What is the link with chocolate?


We're Jammin' in Jamaica

Children study the island of Jamaica as a contrasting locality.  How is Jamaica different geographically?  Why is Jamaica different culturally?  At the end of this unit Y6 celebrate with a Caribbean Carnival, parading their own masks and creating and sharing delicious Caribbean food.
 
 
 

Much Ado about Stratford

William Shakespeare, the most famous playwright the world has ever seen.  Children find out about his life and the times he lived in.  They study and perform extracts from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', one of his most entertaining comedies.  As part of this topic, children have the opportunity to attend a residential in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
 
 
 


SATs

Part of the job of the Y6 team is to ensure that children feel confident and prepared for SATs week, which is in the middle of May.  In order to do this, children are encouraged to try their best and achieve as much as they can, whilst still enjoying the broad curriculum we offer.  To relieve some of the pressures children sometimes feel in relation to SATs, we provide stress-busting activities (making pizzas, TASC activities etc) around this time!
