Year 6

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 use maps and atlases to locate ancient Mayan settlements, we will consider the Mayan timeline and will be researching and making Mayan masks. We will also be looking at Mayan  beliefs and researching Mayan cities.


Our class text is 'Boy in the Tower' by Polly Ho. This story is all about a boy called Ade who lives in a tower block in South London. Strange happenings cause buildings in the local area to mysteriously collapse. Who or what is responsible for the destruction? More buildings fall: Ade's school is closed down, his neighbours flee the area and his best friend Gaia moves to Brighton but Ade cannot leave. What will happen to him? Will those responsible be stopped in time?
