Welcome to Eagle Class - Year 6
During Term 1 we will be learning about.....
The Windrush Generation
We will be exploring how the migration of many families from the Caribbean Islands had an impact on the United Kingdom.
We will read the autobiography of Floella Benjamin "Coming to England" this text gives an insight into the circumstances that brought a whole generation of West Indians to Britain and the struggles they experienced while transitioning to a new life in the "fabled motherland"
We will base all of our writing around this text.
In science, we will be looking at Electricity. We will make circuits, make predictions and explain what we have observed.
The Kingdom of God will be our new topic in R.E. We will explore the values necessary to enter the Kingdom and compare this to our own unique gifts and talents.
