Welcome to the first term of Year 6!
Our topic is entitled, ‘Raiders of the Lost City’ and we will be investigating the Maya civilisation. To launch our topic, we will be hosting an explorer day on Friday 13th September, we look forward to seeing your explorer attire. We will be exploring the: Maya number system; the creation of the calendar; the food they ate and its significance and the importance of the sun. Within art and design and technology they will be deigning and creating their own Maya masks.
We our particularly looking forward to the trip to Govilon (Tuesday 24th September - Friday 27th September). If your child is coming, there will be a final information talk on Tuesday 12th September at 3.15pm. At Govilon, the children will have a variety of opportunities to challenge themselves (including caving and gorge walking) whilst taking in the beautiful Welsh scenery; hopefully, we'll be blessed with good weather!
The BLP value for the term is respect and the children will be discussing what it means to be respectful and all the different ways we show respect.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning and want to find out more ways you can support with their learning, then please do not hesitate to contact us via your child's home school record book, via our office email or in person.
