Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Miss Dade
TA: Mrs Kevlin
Our topic question this term is ‘Who were the Mayans and what have we learnt from them?’. We will be looking at the Mayans, when and where they lived, religion and gods, the Maya number system, Maya writing and Maya food. Our learning of the Mayans started when the children had the opportunity to take part in a virtual reality experience exploring the Mayan civilisation. The children absolutely loved it!
In English we will be focusing on ‘writing to inform’ this half term. We will be writing explanation texts and non-chronological reports based around our learning about the Mayans.
In Maths we are going to be learning BODMAS – ordering mathematical operations as well as extending our understanding of decimals and percentages.
In Science our topic is ‘How could you light up your life?’ we will be extending our understanding of how light travels, how shadows are formed and how our eyes use light to see.
Our PE days this term will be change week to week depending on timetabling. It is important that children always have a full PE kit. These items should be clearly named.
