Term 1

The children have really enjoyed our topic of COASTS this term.  We have learnt about coastal management and designed our own sea defences. using our knowledge of how coastlines are transformed by natural processes such as erosion and deposition.   In Science, children pieced together evidence from pre-historic fossils and followed Charles Darwin's voyage of discovery on the Beagle. They learnt about Mary Anning and the fossil discoveries that she made along the Lyme Regis - Charmouth coast. We had a a fantastic day in Charmouth fossil hunting with expert Ed Drewitt.  Children found ammonites, belemnites and we even had the weather on our side!  Have a look at some of our pictures:

Really good web site (with lots of visual aids to help understand tricky concepts); it is American but, while not a direct match to the National Curriculum for Year 6, the ‘Grade 5’ learning and games would be a match for age – and you could always look at ‘Grade 4’ or 'Grade 6' to support/stretch as appropriate:


Web site designed more for teachers, and includes lots of concepts aimed at secondary-age learning. However, there are some useful tools which show models and images that might help your child’s understanding if something is proving tricky to understand:
