Year 6


This term, Year 6 have learnt about rivers. They began the topic by revising the water cycle and  how this cycle is integral to human life. They then researched the many uses for rivers around the world and created information texts using ICT to present their information. Following this, Year 6 learnt about the different stages of a river and worked collaboratively to draw and label these parts as well as explain how deposition, transportation and erosion occur. Finally, the children produced advice leaflets for what to do if a river floods. Year 6 have also linked their geography to their art by producing beautiful water colour paintings of the River Thames based on the art of JMW Turner.


This term, Year 6 have been learning about our local area, considering how it has changed over the years and what the future holds for it. As part of this topic, the children have studied Ordnance Survey maps and how to use grid references to locate positions on the map, such as our school. To consolidate our learning in a real life context, we walked to Harmondsworth Moor where we carried out some geography fieldwork, including using compasses for direction and locating where we were on an OS map.
