Welcome to Year 6! I hope you have had a fantastic summer and are ready to go for your last year at Cradley! I'm thrilled to be teaching you all again and can't wait to get started!
We have a fantastic range of topics that we will cover over the year and we are going to start with the impact of World War 2 on Cradley and our local area. We are going to explore the bigger picture of the war first with the different countries involved and identify who was working with each other. We will then scale it down to our area and examine how the war impacted upon our ancestors. We will explore bombings that happened and potential bombings that could have happened in our area whilst locating where different bomb shelters were. Below is a great website for you to research some information about World War 2:
Our science topic for this first term will be electricity! This is a really exciting topic where the children will firstly learn about the origins of electricity and how its use has evolved over time. Then we will get to create our own circuits and test out different experiments to see what happens when we add or take things from the circuit. The BBC bitesize website is a great place to watch excellent clips and learn more about electricity.
