Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

We have a rich and engaging curriculum that challenges and stretches our fantastic, well rounded children.

Ask your child about each of the things we upload, they should have a strong understanding of what they did and, perhaps more importantly, why they did it! 

Children in Year 6 now have a busy but fun last half term at St.Leonard's. Along with Haven Banks, children are also getting ready for their end of year production: Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies!

How Tsunamis Work

The immense swell of a tsunami can grow up to 100 feet, hitting speeds over 500 mph -- a treacherous combination for anyone or anything in its path. Alex Gendler details the causes of these towering terrors and explains how scientists are seeking to reduce their destruction in the future.

What are Hurricanes, Typhoons and Tropical Cyclones?

What are hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones and how do they form? James Chubb explains how we classify the different storms and how they are formed.

How Do Tornadoes Form?

Tornadoes are the most violent storms on Earth, with wind velocities that can exceed 200 miles per hour. How do these terrifying cyclones form? Meteorologist James Spann sheds light on the lifespan of tornadoes as they go from supercell thunderstorms to terrible twisters before eventually dissolving back into thin air.

Plate Tectonics for Kids

Our Earth is made of large pieces (land masses) called plates.These land masses move around the way bath toys move around in the bathtub.Theory explaining these movements of plates is known as plate tectonics. This is also known as continental drift.

How Earthquakes Work

Quick Earthquake facts and little known details about how Earthquakes work and form.

What are Volcanoes?
