Striving for




Dolphins (Y6)

Welcome to the


Welcome to the Year 6 Dolphins class page. The staff at Waverley Junior Academy are looking forward to seeing you all flourish this year. On this page you will find key information regarding your transition to Year 6 and what exciting things we have planned. 

 Summer 1 Term

Our first topic in Summer 1 is ‘Crime and Punishment’. This will be linked to the famous artist Banksy. We will be conducting an artist study and looking at what inspired Banksy’s artwork. We will also be learning all about electricity and light within our science lessons. In history, we are going to begin to understand the Mayan culture and when this period of time took place. This will flow nicely into our music sessions as we will be producing music linked to the rainforest.


Electricity, electrical appliance/device, mains, plug, electrical circuit, complete circuit, component, cell, battery, positive, negative, connect/connections, loose connection, short circuit, crocodile clip, bulb, switch, buzzer, motor, conductor, insulator, metal, non-metal, symbol


In English, we will be completing a brochure on a holiday destination. This will be in the form of a persuasive advert. Then, we will be writing a TripAdvisor style review of their hotel. After that, we will be upskilling our previous published writing throughout the year.

In Maths, we will be revising previous learning throughout the year and become more secure in all areas. Then we will be conducting a theme park investigation to support our understanding of money and budgets.

In RSHE we will cover the topic ‘Changing Bodies’. This will focus on body development and the changes experienced growing up.

In art we are going to be conducting an artist study on the famous artist ‘Banksy’. This links to our later topic of crime and punishment.

In Science, we are deepening our understanding of electricity and light. We will be looking at shadows and how these are created.
