Welcome to the Year 6 Page!

Hello and welcome to Year 6's class page. Our teachers our Miss Smethurst, Miss Blankley and Miss Andrews and we are very lucky to have Mr Roberts and Miss Robinson supporting us too.

This term is jam-packed with learning! We will be working collaboratively to develop and finance a theme park in Maths in order to apply all we have learnt this year.  As well as this project, we will be working on stop motion animation linked to our learning in R.E., having some super P.E. lessons with specialist coaches and putting our all into the end of year production: Lion King.

Look out on the website for updates on our residential trip to Oakerwood Monday 24th – Wednesday 26th June.

Through our topic, Marvellous Mayans, we will be learning about Central and South America, Maya civilisation and their unusual religious and social practices. As part of understanding what was important to the Mayan people, we will be exploring artefacts and learning about the creation of the Mayan calendar, the number and writing system and the importance of one of our favourite foods – chocolate. We will be exploring the sorts of masks and head-dresses they would have worn and will make our own ‘masks’ using MODROC. Following this, the children will design and cook a Maya feast worthy of the Gods. As we discover more about how their society was established, we will learn about democracy in our country and how our laws and decisions about our future are made.

In science, we will be studying Evolution and Inheritance.

Notes:

Children will need their P.E. kits in school on Thursday and Friday for their P.E. session.

All homework (Maths and English) will be set on a Friday to be completed for the following Friday as it will be marked that day, so that we can address any misconceptions immediately.
