Year 6

Welcome back to the start of a new year at St. George & St. Martin’s Catholic Academy. We are looking forward to teaching your children in their last year at our school!  Year 6 are a valuable part of our Pupil Leadership Team have made an excellent start as Prefects and Play Leaders and being brilliant role models for the younger members of our school.

Our topic this term is ‘Secrets of the Universe’ which be taught through a Creative Curriculum.  The topic also fits nicely with our class novel ‘George’s Secret Key to the Universe’ by Lucy and Stephen Hawking.  During this topic, the children will learn about our Solar System and key facts about the Earth, Sun and Moon, light and shadow and gravity.  We will also investigate the ‘Space Race’ and how astronauts such as Tim Peake are continuing to inspire us with their adventures.  The children have some exciting Art and Design projects to complete such as creating their own structure of the moon and in re-creating Van Gough’s Starry Night picture.
