Year 6 – Curriculum (Teacher Mr Haslam)

Welcome back to your final year at Lower Peover, I hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are feeling refreshed and raring to go! I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year!

As you are now Year 6 you will be faced with many new challenges and responsibilities, which I know you will all work hard to succeed in. We will obviously have important challenges such as SATs and the transition to high school, but rest assured that as a class we will work together to make these experiences fun and exciting!

We have some fantastic themes to study in Year 6. Firstly, we will start with ‘The Aztecs & Mayan civilisations’, where we will look at their way of life and traditions; be warned – some of them are a little gruesome! Next, we will be looking at Shakespeare, with a particular focus on the play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This is a fantastic play with lots of opportunities for creative writing, art and drama. After Christmas, our theme will be ‘Dreams’. We will use a wonderful book to inspire us with our work!

During the Easter term, our topic ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ will be where we begin our SATs Grammar & Punctuation revision through a really exciting book – soon to be revealed. We will be learning all about the key aspects of rivers, mountains and the water cycle.

Our last term is a very busy one, beginning with one of our new themes – London. We will also be learning about ‘The Industrial Age’, where we will choose an aspect of local History to investigate in our own project.

Finally, we will also have our school production, our leavers service at Chester Cathedral, our school leavers service, and of course … PGL!

I look forward to seeing you all in September!
