Wider Curriculum

Week beginning 20th April

Good morning Y6 and welcome to another 'lock-down project'! This week, we will be continuing with our Geography theme of 'Conservation'. Your task this week is to find out as much as you can about something called 'The Greenhouse Effect' and explain how scientists believe this may be causing global warming. You have a week to do some research and present your findings in any way you wish, You could make a poster, power-point, information leaflet or simply write a report - it's up to you. Make sure you gain a good understanding of the science involved in this - there are some really good websites out there that explain it clearly - BBC bite-size is a good place to start. You will probably need to use diagrams in your projects to make sure you show the process clearly. 


Happy researching - this is a really important topic!

A couple of examples of work from last week's task! Well done!

Week beginning Tuesday 14th April


This week's task is an art task but it also links to our Geography work on Conservation. This is your challenge from Mrs Buckpitt:



Design and make a collage about an environmental cause that interests you. You need to choose a 'slogan' that inspires you as a starting point. You could choose one from the list below or make up your own if you like!

  • The Earth does not belong to us:we belong to Earth
  • Save Earth. We have nowhere else to go.
  • Be awesome and save nature.
  • Don't let our future go up in smoke.
  • Stop pollution is the best solution!
  • Don't use plastic and be fantastic!


Your collage must be created only using materials that are heading for the rubbish or recycling bin. You must include your slogan somewhere in you collage - you might want to use lettering found in the recycle bin to help you with this. Have fun! Remember - no paint, pencils or pens allowed! 


Week beginning 23rd March


This week, your wider learning task is Geography related. I would like you to pick up where we left off in our lessons and do some research about renewable energy. Your task is to find out as much as you can about one specific type of renewable energy and to present your findings as either a poster, leaflet, powerpoint or written report.


If you are really bored, you could research a number of different types of renewable energy and perhaps make some comparisons - you might even decide which one you think would be best for the UK to focus on.


The types of energy you might want to research are:

  • solar
  • wind
  • wave
  • tidal
  • geothermal
  • biomass
  • hydro

Good luck! I look forward to seeing what you produce!
