The Topic this half term is
Our History topic this half term is The Mysterious Mayans. During this Non-European Study, we will be learning about the chronology and location of the Maya Civilization. We will be using historical sources to infer about the Maya way of life as well as learning about Mayan Gods, the number system and Chichen Itza. Children will be encouraged to complete independent projects.
In Science, we will be learning about Electricity and Reversible and Irreversible changes. These units are largely investigation based. We will learn about electrical symbols and use these to create circuits and learn how to separate materials, heating, cooling and burning.
Reading and Writing
In reading and writing, Year 6 will be studying the text Cloud Busting. We will be learning to analyse a text and its themes. Inspired by the narrative poem, we will write narratives, persuasive texts, hold a debate and write poems.
In maths we will be developing our problem solving skills through investigations.
PE is on Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child brings appropriate kit (a t-shirt that covers the mid-drift, shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers). Please note earrings are not to be worn and that as PE is outside on a Thursday, children may wish to bring a jumper.
