Autumn 1:

Our Whole School Quest question is: Where are the treasures of the world?

Our Y6 Quest question this term is: Where on Earth would you like to go?

This half term we have been studying different landmarks around the world. 

Some of our key questions for this term were:

What are lines of longitude and latitude? What are they used for?

What are the main symbols used on a map?

What are the seven wonders of the world?

Who was Salvador Dali? What is surrealism?

What are the names of the Hindu Gods? Why does Brahma have four heads?

Why does Vishnu ride on an eagle?

Why is Shiva often shown as dancing? Why and how do Hindus celebrate Diwali?



This is a really important year for DSA children, where we are helping children to prepare for SATs and also helping children to prepare for the next stage of their lives, into Secondary School. Alongside this we will be extending our skills and knowledge through exciting topics and enrichment activities.  

We look forward to discussing your child's progress with you in more detail during parents evening next half term. 


Remember to look at the curriculum letter for parents to see all the exciting things your children have been learning each term.
