Topics

Term 1 Topic -

Around the World

Through this topic we explore our world from here at home to far away. We look at famous places round the world as well as exploring culture, dance, art and music in other countries. We use the internet to research transport in other countries and we have a look at some food from other countries.


Term 2 Topic - Polar Explorer/Titanic

The topic of Titanic really captures the thoughts and feelings of P6 as they explore this extraordinary disaster with its roots so firmly sewn in Northern Ireland. We journey from construction in Belfast and design by Thomas Andrews of Comber to the maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

in parallel to this we learn about the RRS Attenborough and it’s role in research at the South Pole. We will compare and contrast the ships, their construction, roles and uses.

 

Term 3 Topic - Bridges

In this topic we learn about the role of bridges and some of the famous bridges in the United Kingdom and further afield.  We explore the construction of bridges through technology activities and have a go at building our own.
