Year 6 Foxes
CURRENT CURRICULUM THEME:
During the Summer Term we will be studying key events from WW1 and 2. During our War topic, we will explore many elements of history relating to WW1 and 2 including the outbreak of WW1, the lead up to WW2, Dunkirk, The Blitz and The Holocaust. Whilst this is primarily a history topic we will use and develop our geographical knowledge of the Europe and the wider world as well as studying a key artist - Henry Moore - who created artwork inspired by the London Underground tube stations being used as Bomb Shelters during The Blitz.
We will also be completing lots of transition work this half term with Maltby Academy to ensure children have a smooth transition and feel ready for their new journey.
