Year 6

 Welcome to your final year at Saltdean Primary. Together, we will make it your  best year yet! Here are just some of the exciting things that you have to look forward to:

Greek Dress up day

Thursday 21st November

Parents' Evening

 

 

Christmas Concert 

Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th November

 

Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th December

This term, our topic is all about Evolution and Inheritance. We will be learning about Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, as well as looking at other theories, ideas and stories of how humans came to live on Earth. Maybe you could start investigating at home and see which of your family members have the same colour eyes or hair as you, do you share the same hobbies or is one of your siblings or cousins really good at playing an instrument? I wonder why this is?

We will also study some fossils and see what they can tell us about the past. Mary Anning, a famous British fossil collector, even has her own special section dedicated to her finds in The Natural History Museum.
