Summer Term 2023

How can we make a difference to the future?

How can we use maps to track how Hatfield has changed over the past 100 years?

Year 6 will be starting off this topic by looking at Ordnance Survey maps of Hatfield and learn how to use six figure grid references also using and understanding map symbols.  They will then compare these to OS maps from 100 years ago and look at the changes in land use in Hatfield since the 1920’s.  Finally, year 6 will view census data in order to further build up a picture of Hatfield during the past 100 years.

Year 6 will then go on to learn about sustainability.  The children will then move into smaller groups and choose a sustainability theme that they are passionate about.  They will undertake further research about this theme and then think about ways that they can make Oak View Primary School more sustainable.  The children will share their findings with the younger years and then support the whole school in ways to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly.  The children will monitor these projects throughout the term.

Our theme work will link with our literacy work as we will be creating some persuasive writing about sustainability.
