Year 6

Welcome to the year 6 page:

“I like to be in America, okay by me in America. Every thing's free in America...”

or so the song goes!

Our topic this term is entitled West Side Story and focuses on the geography of North America. We will study the physical and human characteristics of this vast area and compare them to the British landscape. The children will learn about the Rockies, the Panama Canal, the Grand Canyon, and various climates and time zones to name but a few. Art will focus on Native American Totem poles where the children will be fortunate enough to make their own – you’ll be amazed at what can be created out of yoghurt pots and card! The music will demonstrate their skills at performing ‘America’ from the film West Side Story – much confident stomping, side stepping and high clapping will be the order of the day!
