Welcome to Class 6P
In year 6 this term our topic is a study of Ancient Civilisation of The Mayans. We will launch our topic with an investigation about chocolate. Did you know that chocolate was first cultivated in Ancient America?
We will learn about Mayan God’s, Ceremonial Cities and how the Ancient Maya lived.
The Maya were expert mathematicians and Astronomers which will be the inspiration for our art; we will produce calendars using clay.
As Scientists we will be learning about The Human Body and how our bodies change as we move into old age.
We will continue to develop our reading comprehension skills in English. It is particularly important that we read at speed. At half-term, we will research the life of a famous person so that we can write a Biography.
In RE our topics are Sources, Unity and Death and New Life.
In Sources we will be investigating stories that are passed on in our families and will link this to a study of The Bible. In Unity, we will be learning about friendship and in Death and New Life, we will deepen our learning of Lent and Easter.
This is an important term and we will be developing resilience, in particular we will be developing the pace that we are working at and preparing ourselves so that we can confidently sit our SATs in May.
