Year 6

Tomorrow’s World

During this half term, we’ll interview a blogger and investigate the process their work goes through. We’ll learn about the history of computing, which surprisingly goes back 6000 years to the Antikythera mechanism, and find out how optical fibre cables are used. We’ll learn all about lasers, and make periscopes and complex circuits. Children will investigate the structure and make up of electrical circuits and will represent them using diagrams. They will also plan and create their own programmable device. At the end of the Imaginative Learning Project, they will design a helpful robotic device and we’ll think about the future of technology.


Help your child prepare for their project

If the world today relies so heavily on technology, what will it be like in ‘tomorrow’s world’? Why not go on a technology hunt to locate computerised and robotic devices in your home? You could also create a survey to find out how much time your family and friends spend using technology each day. Alternatively, go online to research a significant figure in the computing world. What did they discover and how did this influence our daily lives? Recap your knowledge of light and circuits from previous years.
