Wonder

Cross Curricular Learning

Welcome back to Year 6!

This term, Year 6's learning will be built upon R.J Palacio's novel - Wonder.  The children will be exploring different themes, including equality, compassion, empathy and inclusion. 

During our Art sessions, the children will explore the work of Tad Carpenter, who was responsible for the cover illustration on the Wonder book.   We will recreate some of his work, as well as applying some of our own artistic talents.

In Geography, the children will be looking at their local environment and its features and landmarks.

Within Science, the children will be learning about light and how we see.  They will be making their own periscopes based upon what they have learnt about how light travels.  The children will also be applying their knowledge on how shadows are created to present their own shadow puppet theatre production.

During Music, the children will be learning to play the guitar!  We have 31 acoustic guitars for the children to be taught their weekly music lesson on.  Maybe a future Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix is among us!
