The year 6 team
This term we are learning about
Law & Order
We will be exploring the origins and history of law, starting with the Ancient Egyptians and moving through the history of various ancient civilizations and the codification of law in England (and then Great Britain) whilst visiting various Kings before arriving at Parliament and modern day law-making.
Our learning then becomes relevant to modern-day Britain as we explore the role of the United Nations, specifically Human Rights Law and the Rights of the Child. This will include the Schools work with GARAS and culminate in a year group display piece of artwork.
This topic is history based but will incorporate a large amount of personal and social development (FREE/ PSHE) as we take part in workshops with the Police (Gloucestershire Constabulary), visit Gloucester Prison, hold a workshop with Great Expectations on crime and rehabilitation, hold a Q&A session with GARAS (Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers), and then deliver a mock court case in the Council Chamber!
YEAR 6 HOMEWORK
All year 6 children will receive a homework pack in the first week of January.
This pack will include GCP SAT's prep books for mathematics, reading and SPaG. They will also receive a National Curriculum Spelling List.
Each week the children will receive a slip from their teachers explaining which tasks or spellings need to be completed/ learned.
Occasionally, some children may also receive additional homework tasks or the teacher may wish to set homework in other others related to the creative curriculum.
If you have any questions regarding homework then please feel free to speak to a member of the year 6 team.
