Carpe Diem - Seize the Day
Welcome to Year 6 - Falcons
Welcome to Year 6,
The children from both Eagles and Falcons classes will be taught by both teachers this year. For English and Maths the children will be mixed but for other subjects, they will remain in their form groups.
Please, could you remind your child to hand their 'Home Link Book and 'Reading Journal' in every day, any messages should be recorded in the 'Home Link Book' and reading should be recorded in the 'Reading Journal'. Year 6 are encouraged to read at least six times a week and to write a brief summary of what they have read. It is also helpful to make a note of interesting vocabulary or phrases to magpie for their own writing.
This term our main topic is Buried under The Sand, a study of Ancient Egyptian life, where we will be: finding out what daily life was like for the Ancient Egyptian people; understanding Ancient Egyptian religion and why their gods were important to them; finding out about Ancient Egyptian inventions and how they affect our lives today. In Geography we will locate Egypt and explore the weather and reasons as to why it is a popular tourist destination. In music, they will sing Ancient Egyptian songs and the children will then explore the composition of such songs. ICT will continue to be used to support other subjects, but they will also learn how to evaluate an information source effectively. They will work on the skills involved in invasion games and will build on consolidating their gymnastic techniques during PE lessons. This unit of work will be supported by a visit to the Liverpool World Museum to look at the Ancient Egyptian gallery and take part in an interactive workshop entitled 'Meet the Mummy'.
Homework will be given on a Friday and should be returned on Thursday.
I have also included links to literacy, numeracy and science websites which will assist your learning. If you know of any useful websites, please let me know so I can add them for other people to access.
