Year 6

Your Country Needs You!

The children will study the way of life during World War One. They will look at the causes of the war and the impact it had on our own way of life. In addition to finding out lots of interesting facts, they will be developing their independent learning skills through collaborative tasks; independent research and making choices about the pathways that their learning will take. 


During the first half of the term the children will investigate the human body in our Humans As Animals topic. They will explore the different parts of the body, and will learn about the functions of the key organs.  Light is the topic that will be studied in the second half of the term.


Our RE topic will be focused on our World War One theme and will explore the differences between RE religion lessons 100 years ago and now.  The children will debate which they think is more effective.  We will then move onto looking into why people choose to suffer and look at the soldiers’ patriotism.  Of course, we will also be thinking about Christmas later this term!


In Music, the children will be examining war songs and why they were inspirational by looking at their structure and lyrics.  Finally, at the end of the unit, they will work on composing musical ideas based on different WW1 images.
