Welcome to Year 6
This term our River of Knowledge topic is 'Superstructures and Tangled Leaves'.This half term we will be learning all about the Mayans: We will be looking at the Mayan calendar and the Mayan number system. We will also be using our half term homework to help us construct a scale model of a Mayan city. In addition to this we will be researching Mayan food, planning a menu and doing some Mayan style cooking. In the latter half of the term the children will plan and present a self-directed project comparing South America to Britain focusing on similarities and differences.
We will continue working on our class text the 'Boy in the Tower' by Polly Ho and will be linking report writing and writing suspense and mystery stories with the text.
