Year 6 Curriculum Map – 2016/2017

AUTUMN 1

We have had an incredibly busy first half term. During our first week back in school, we visited the Westmorland Show and had an enjoyable day looking at all our local community has to offer.  That was followed in the second week with Year 6 taking part in Cycle Wise – a four day cycling proficiency course. Everyone passed with flying colours and the class were commended by the instructors for their politeness and excellent listening skills.

Most recently, we have worked hard on our class book – Why The Whales Came, by Michael Morpurgo – to produce letters written from the point of view of one of the main characters, metaphor poems and also artwork related to the book.

 

Autumn 2

Next half term is set to  be even busier! Our topic will concentrate on The Tudors.

The construction of our Tudor Houses are now complete – well done Yr 6, they look very authentic!

Year 6  London Residential trip

Day 1

On Wednesday 14th June, half of Year 6 packed our backs and headed to Oxenholme Station for a 7:24 departure to London; a fully fun few days ahead of us. After we arrived at Euston Station, we headed to our first tube on the underground with all our bags -quite an adventure! We were travelling to the Safe Stay Youth Hostel in Elephant and Castle to drop off our bags.

We made our way to the House of Parliament (to the MPs, Parliament Village) and had a short but fascinating tour. By this time it was 12.30pm, and we were all starving, but it was time to meet Tim Farron -we had a chance to ask questions about his job of leader of the Lib Dems. Did we say something to make him step down?

It soon became the evening and it was time to ride the London Eye; a dread for people who are scared of heights, for example, Mrs Whetton who wouldn’t let us stand by the door. However, there were some amazing views and we greatly enjoyed it!  Time for bed- or a midnight feast as some would say.

Day 2

Our trip to the Tower of London.  First of all we were advised to visit the Crown Jewels before the crowds arrived- that’s how early we were! Diamonds, emeralds… every jewel you could imagine were placed on top of the crown.  After that, we split up into groups and were able to look around the rest of the tower  which had lots of historical elements including the torture tower and the bloody tower.

Following lunch with an ice cream to complete it, we headed to the Science Museum, where we experienced a rocket science exhibition and Wonder lab. There were some mind blowing experiments which were very interesting.

Later that night, we went to Pizza Express for  tea-the pizzas were delicious. Then, we set off on a 15minute walk to the Lyceum Theatre for a spectacular production of the Lion King that lasted about 2hours 30mins. By then it was time to head back for some beauty sleep.

Day 3

It started with an early morning to pack up, ready to leave the hostel in time to fit everything in before the train left. Up next was St Paul’s Cathedral with a whopping stair climb of 528 steps to the top of the dome- at a height of nearly 85metres. Finally, our last adventure as a class was a relaxing river cruise down the murky but soothing River Thames across to the Westminster Underground. We travelled back to where we started, so that we could pick up our backs and depart to Euston Station to catch the train. But first of all, we had to go to Sainsbury’s to pick up some snacks for our train ride back home.

After our long journey back, we were reunited with our family on Platform 3 at Oxenholme Station.
