We will embark on our journey in Year 6 by completing a mini project about the Titanic, followed by studying World War 1 throughout the autumn term. This will include analysing and performing war poetry, which leads us to the Christmas period, where we will learn that, “there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour,” by studying A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
In the spring term, the experiences of Willie from ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ will help us to learn more about the journey that different groups of people took during World War 2.
To conclude our journey at Glade, the summer term will be action-packed with SATs revision and end of Key Stage 2 assessments. We will then celebrate our success with a residential trip, sports competitions, art projects followed by the grand finale - our musical performance!
