Year 6 - Miss Lees and Miss Swatton

Summer Term 2021

Shaking things up in the capital!


One of the most vibrant and popular cities in the world, London has something for everyone! Throughout this topic, the children will delve deeper into what makes our capital city so unique and diverse. Alongside this, we will be studying the famous historical figure ’Willian Shakespeare’ and exploring his incredible contribution to not only the capital, but the English Language as we know it. A myriad of topics will be covered, from culture to history and art to architecture, this exciting topic is sure to inspire! In addition to learning about this fantastic city, both year 5 and 6  children will make direct comparisons with areas of America. We will study similarities and differences between geographical features and every day life of London and differing capitals. As the year 6 children near the end of their time at Barrowby School, we will begin to think about preparations for secondary school throughout our PSHE work, in order to ensure a smooth transition.  Both year 5 and 6 will put our DT and performing art skills to good use, all of the children will be involved in preparing, planning and delivering a production. Our year 6 children will use this understanding to help them prepare their menus for their Gala Dinner which takes place this term. Furthermore our year 6 children will be taking part in an action packed camping trip right here on our school grounds. We aim to make this summer term a special ending to our year 6 children’s time at Barrowby CE Primary school.
