In Year 6, our pupils’ learning is brought together to showcase all that our children have learnt over their time at Alfred Salter.

Children learn about Britain at War; Evolution and Inheritance (in our topic ‘Adventure Island’) and plan for their future in our ‘Be the Change’ topic. We continue to use historical and contemporary inspirational figures to guide our learning, including Gandhi, Water Tull and David Attenborough. Our scientific learning encompasses evolution of animals; classification of different types of organisms and a study of the human circulation system.

As pupils prepare for their end of Key Stage assessment, we ensure that pupils have consolidated their understanding of the core subjects of reading, writing and mathematics. However, we also ensure that there is plenty of time for wider learning, with a particular focus on building the skills that pupils will need to transition to secondary school.

Highlights of the school year include the opportunity to participate in a school journey to Nethercott Farm in Devon (where pupils live in a huge farmhouse and help to run the working farm for a week) and our Year Six show, where pupils work together to plan and perform a spectacular end to their time at school!

Japanese Block Printing

As part of their Japanese Art topic, Year 6 have been busy creating their own block prints of Mount Fuji.

Their inspiration came from their study of Hokusai, where they explored his famous series of landscape prints, entitled 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji'. Their task was to create the '37th' view of Mount Fuji, using polystyrene to create their own version of a wood block stamp and then using layering techniques to create their print. 

The prints are still a work in progress, but we look forward to sharing them with you once they are completed!
