Take a look at our long term plan to see what we will be learning throughout the course of the year in Year 6:

You can find out more about these topics by clicking on the Medium Term Plan links below


World Wars Medium Term Plan 


Knowledge Organisers

We use our Knowledge Organisers throughout our topic to introduce new vocabulary and 'sticky knowledge' children will learn during Topic lessons.


World War 1

World War 2


Class Countries

Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of Year 6, the children have compiled a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country.  In Year 6, our class country is Mexico. We will learn a lot about Mexico through our topic.

PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics education)

PSHE education in school is promoted through our wide and varied curriculum which is carefully planned to enhance the children’s personal, social, emotional and economic development.

At Golcar J, I & N School, we use the PSHE Association’s three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These three themes form part of a developmental, spiral curriculum. This means that the same key principles are revisited each year but are taken a step further to build upon the children’s knowledge and understanding. They permeate school life and are discussed regularly in assemblies and lessons, forming part of our day to day vocabulary.

This half term's PSHE learning 

In PSHE, our focus of the first term is relationships. We will cover families and friendships, safe relationships and respecting others.
