I can do all things through him who strengthens me

Welcome to Year 6

Curriculum

As a school we are launching a new curriculum for this academic year. The children will now have a big question to focus their learning for the year. Ours is ‘Do invasions change countries forever?’

In order to be able to answer this question, the children will have 6 sub-questions to focus on throughout the year. Our first one is ‘What was the impact of the Roman invasions of Britain?’

As part of this, we will explore some of the key events which occurred during this time period including invasions and significant figures in order to develop our chronology. We will then explore the impact of these invasions by considering roads, language, writing and numbers, architecture, religion and plumbing and sanitation.

To compliment our Connections lessons, the children will be focusing on biographies in Writing skills initially leading to them writing about the life of a significant Roman figure, and then explanation texts, resulting in them writing about how Roman roads were formed.

In maths, we will be focusing on place value and the four operations.
