Autumn 2

Welcome to Year 6!


Hello, welcome to Year 6.

At Avenue Primary, we learn about a different topic every half term. These topics and called ‘drivers’ and revolve around a main question, which links specifically to either Science, History or Geography.

For this half term, we have a Science driver and our question to investigate is…



Within this driver, we will focus on Light and Electricity objectives. We will consider how we can see through some objects but not others. We will also investigate how mirrors work and how our eyes transfer the light signals they receive to the images we see.

We will also be creating electrical circuits and trying to make a bulb light up and a buzzer buzz. We will also look at the Scientific symbols for electrical components and reflect on being safe around electricity.

Here is an outline of the other curriculum areas we will be covering this term.
