Year 6 – Class Maple
Welcome to Class Maple! As the eldest children here at Bourn, we take on a variety of responsibilities around the school. We act as buddies to the children in Class Acorn to help them to settle in, we organise the school library, set up the hall for collective worship each day and take on the role of ‘Maple Mediators’ to help children with friendship issues in the playground. You can learn more about our learning this year on the Curriculum page.
This term’s Enrichment Curriculum is set against the backdrop of Tudor England. The children will learn about the main changes during the Tudor period that affected and moulded British history. The unit will start at the end of the Middle Ages and will look at the War of the Roses and the formation of a new monarchy. It will continue with a study of the key characters of the age, such as Henry VIII, his wives and children and their differing approaches to ruling the land. Through studies of the King and his many wives, children will also learn about religious reformation and the dissolution of the monasteries, as well as the divided opinion of the public themselves and the punishment meted out to those who opposed the realm.
This half term we are learning all about ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ in our Science lessons.
