Year 6 is a huge year for children at Mitton Manor. This year children learn to be independent and responsible as they begin their move towards secondary school. They have their SATs but more than that they benefit from an enriched and widespread curriculum. They will learn a great deal about the world around them as well as about themselves and will make great strides in their preparation for the next big step. It is also a difficult year with lots of change and some big moments, the year 6 team work hard with all colleagues to ensure children enjoy a happy and progressive year which should be full of fun, laughter and responsibility. They will all receive jobs to ensure that they develop confidence and empathy with others and their surroundings.

Autumn Term 2020
We have had a very busy start to the term. This term we have been very much led by our science topic of 'Evolution and Inheritance'. We have been finding out about Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace and their theories of evolution. We have shared a story called 'The Moth' which has helped us to understand how adaptations can occur over time. We have also used our geographical skills to compare the human and physical geography of the UK, Spain and North America.
Next half term we are looking forward to finding out more about living things and their habitats and how animals are classified. In addition to this, we will be using our historical skills to sift and evaluate sources to try and construct an accurate view of the past.
