Autumn Term in Year 6 is always very busy, with lots of work to be completed! Our topics this term are called 'Space Exploration' and 'Blitz and Pieces'. Within Space, we will look at the planets in our Solar System and how they differ. We will focus on night and day and time phases and the phases of the moon. Within the 'Blitz and Pieces' topic, we will be looking at WW2; with a particular focus on how it impacted on life in Wales, evacuations and key events from this time period.
