Wilthorpe Primary School Aim high and never give up

Y6 Mercury/Orion

Welcome to Mercury and Orion


Mercury - Mrs Brown and Mrs Dodson

Orion - Mrs Heppenstall/Mrs Tordoff and Miss Ripley

Y6 curriculum

This term both classes have been set the challenge to find out which Britons made us great in our new exciting topic 'Significant Britons'. We will be looking at Britons across a variety of themes including transport, music, communication and health and welfare. The children will be investigating how they contributed to making Britain the great country it is today through history and geography and even taking part in science experiments that led to the way we lead our modern lives. They will also have the opportunity through art to research and create art work in the style of British artists. At the end of the topic, the children will present their findings to the whole school and vote for who they consider to be the 'Greatest Briton'.
