Term 2- How are we damaging our world?

Hello and a welcome back to the Deer Class (Year 6) class page, we are very excited to share the children's learning with you throughout this term. Our next Parent Event is our Remembrance Assembly on Friday 10th November 2023 at 10:30am.  Below you will find this term's newsletter with an overview of all of the learning the children will be doing. Children will need to wear their PE kits to school on a Wednesday and Thursday and our Forest School day is Friday.




Below you will find, the enquiry mat for this term's enquiry about how humans are damaging our world. On here you will find lots of useful information that you can also use as discussion points with your children. We will be looking at the positives of what we can do to combat the negative effects that humans have on the world; this is what makes our enquiry special- we want to become superheroes, who help our world! 

Remembrance Assembly

The children performed a moving assembly the whole school and the Year 6 parents. One of our wonderful Year 6 children had spent a long time learning how to play 'The Last Post' and 'Reveille.' This made the two-minute silence incredibly special.

Athlete Visit

We had an amazing visit from Chris Tawiah, who is an up-and-coming Basketball star. The children had been busy gathering sponsorship money ready for completing a fitness circuit with Chris. He then demonstrated some skills with the children and took part in an inspiring Q and A assembly. 

We raised an incredible £955. Out of this amount, we were able to keep £573 (60%) and £382 (40%) will go towards helping to fund Chris’ career ahead of him.


Design and Technology

The children designed their own wind turbine, carefully planning the materials they would use to have the most impact.

Business and Enterprise

The children worked in different groups (responsible for different roles) to create ideas for a business. They then voted for a business name and logo to show  democracy.

The children worked hard in their different roles to create designs, budget ideas, conduct market research and then the actual making their products.

Enquiry throughout the term

The children have worked incredibly hard this term and have led their own investigations and enquiries around the impact that humans may have on earth and the solutions to the problems they cause. Below you will see our work from the beginning to the end of term.  One of the lessons involved the children devising a research question relating to sustainability specifically to Wyberton Primary Academy, conducting this effectively and finally presenting this in a relevant way. The final lesson involved the children working in groups to research, create a presentation about the current threats to the earth's health and suggest solutions. They then presented these to the rest of the class.
