This half term our Geography topic is learning about North America, we will be learning lots of interesting geographical facts about the United States of America and how we can locate countries and places- to consolidate our mapping work. We will learn in more detail about climate regions, the states, the economic links and major cities. You will undertake research into an aspect of interest to you, creating tourist information booklets.
In History, we will be learning about the Golden Age of Islam and Baghdad in 900 AD. We will look at the Prophet Muhammad and the rise of Baghdad in the Islamic Empire. We will create meals based on Middle Eastern food, linking with this work in Design Technology.
In Science, we will be learning about the evolution and inheritance in biology. We will learn about fossils, evolution of humans through the various stages alongside inherited characteristics. We will build on our prior work based on Darwin's theory and how adaptations have led to evolution.
We will be using our shiny new IPads to support our topic work wherever possible.
Things to Remember:
You will need a water bottle, pen and reading book (and record!) with you in school every day.

Year 6 DT/Cookery day
The children enjoyed preparing and cooking an exciting Middle Eastern menu to support our topic work. You can see a range of skills in action here. Well done to everyone!
Year 6 had an amazing time at Robinwood! All the children had a go at every activity with great enthusiasm. We scaled the heights of the climbing walls; crawled through pitch black caves; threw ourselves into the water during the stream walk and got covered in mud along the way! Take a look at the pictures here.
