The Prophets (Y6)

Welcome to The Prophets!

In the Prophets class, children prepare themselves for transition to secondary school. The children learn independence and the behaviours to take responsibility for their learning.

The children in Prophets Class are taught by Mr Needham, and are supported by Mrs Shephard, Mr Jacobs and Mrs Smith. Mrs Smith teaches the class R.E. Together the team hold high expectations of each individual so they are able to achieve their full potential.

This year the Prophets Class will cover a variety of topics. We will be exploring place value and the four operations in maths. In English, the children will develop their writing skills through various text types such as poetry and non-chronological reports. The children will also learn about grammatical features, such as relative clauses and subordinating conjunctions.

In humanities, we will cover a broad range topics. In Geography we focus on map skills, looking at settlements and migration. We will also look at Natural Resources and the Americas. In History, we focus on World War 2, Number through time and Crime and Punishment. In R.E. the children will learn about Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. During Science, the children will learn about Classifying Living Things, Evolution and Inheritance, Light and Electricity.  

To provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum, we also teach computing. The children will understand about coding and programming. During Art and D.T. the children will design and create products using a variety of methods and materials. P.S.H.E. focuses upon preparing the children with an understanding of the wider world and relationships. Music will focus on the children learning about rhythm and performance whilst listening to music from different genres.

Many thanks,
