This half-term in year 6 we will be focussing on ‘What does it mean to be human? Within in this topic we will be reading Malorie Blackman’s Pig Heart Boy. We will also be starting to look at our transition to secondary school and thinking about our journey at Overdale School.
This half term, our topic is "Being Human". Our class text is "The Boy at the Back of the Class", from this book, we will be looking at what it means to be a good friend by showing compassion and understanding.
The world is a very strange place at the moment in the current situation we are in. We will be discussing how this may further be different for many children our own age; particularly focusing on the Children's Refugee Crisis which links to closely with our class text. We will be looking at what being human means to us by identifying and discussing our own personalities and traits in an art form to highlight how unique we all are.
