Year 6

Our curriculum theme this term is ‘Buildings around the world.’ In Year 6 we will be looking closely at Barcelona, Spain.

In our summer term we will be studying the city of Barcelona where we will learn more about houses and homes there, the changing skyline of the city and the famous buildings and landmarks that define it. We will study the architecture of Antoni Gaudi, such as Casa Batllo and La Sagrada Familia.


Our novel this term is ‘Skellig’ by David Almond.


In Art, Design and Technology we will be exploring:

  • using a viewfinder for drawing and photography
  • textures using rubbings
  • three-dimensional forms, patterns, symmetry and tessellation
  • how to design a house for the creature in Skellig
  • using watercolours to interpret poems by William Blake

Please find an overview of what the children have been learning over the school year.
