The quests for Year 6 during 2023-24 are:
Autumn: Heroes and Villains
Below is some more information about the quest and the exciting learning that Year 6 will be completing.
Spring Term: Journeys
Throughout the Spring Term we will be exploring different types of journeys. We will be looking at the journey of water through the water cycle including flooding. We will be exploring the journey of blood around bodies in the circulatory system and the journey over of time of evolution. In art we will be combining some of our geography and be drawing landscapes with a focus on perspective. Our class texts will include Journey to Jo'Burg and Survivor. We are looking forward to going to the West End in London to see the production of the Lion King, in preparation for our production at the end of Year 6! See below for the the overview of the term.
Our Autumn Term quest was 'Heroes and Villains.' Throughout the quest we explored what makes a true hero and what makes a true villain. In our quest we had some Big Bang Moments including our trip to Go Ape, where we can faced our fears and become heroes, as well as well making periscopes and trenches whilst learning about the heroes and villains of World War One.
Below is a picture of our Quest Working Wall which showcases some of our learning throughout the term.
