In the first term of Year 6, the theme is ‘reconciliation’ - from the resolution of international conflicts, to the healing of a broken friendship. Curriculum links can be drawn with history (WWII) and geography, as well as relationships education. Resources to support children in making connections between the texts can be found in the ‘pulling it all together’ pack, as can a suggested list of books also linked to the theme, which could be read as a class.
