Year 6 – Octopus

Latest Updates

General Information

Next week, the year 6 children will be engrossing themselves in rehearsals for their production, and looking at electronic circuits in Science.

Welcome back to the final half term of Year 6. The children will no doubt be experiencing a range of emotions going into their final few weeks at Kingsleigh, and we hope they will make the most of their remaining time here. The children have worked hard to complete their SATs, and now the focus moves onto our assessment of their writing skills. The children will be developing their own narratives in Literacy, and applying their full range of creative writing skills. We will be problem solving in Maths, and enhancing the children’s capabilities of tackling difficult and complex problems.

Our topic this half term is the Marvellous Mayans, in which we will be studying the ancient kingdom of the Mayans in History. The children will spend time learning ancient Mayan games, and exploring Mayan Gods and religious practises. As part of this topic, the children will also be constructing a Mayan temple in DT.

Towards the end of the year, there will be a range of exciting event happening for the children, including the production, for which rehearsals will start very shortly! The children will have the chance to visit their new secondary school as well, alongside the opportunity to attend leaving barbeques and leaving assemblies. it promises to be a busy, yet memorable half term.
