Welcome to 6E
Papyrus, Pyramids and Pharaohs.
This half term we will be learning about Egypt.
This half term we will be learning about Ancient Egypt. Throughout the term, you will be gathering information and creating an Egyptian scrapbook, focusing on the pyramids, mummification and ancient Egyptian gods.
In Art we will be learning the Egyptian lettering system and will be making our own hieroglyphic ink drawings, as well as paintings of an Egyptian desert horizon.
As you will be going to secondary school next year, there will be a number of taster sessions at your new schools. You will be contacted by your individual school and invited to the taster day.
In PSHE we will also focus on your transition from primary to secondary school and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We will start rehearsing for the year 6 production. It promises to be a lot of fun.
Our focus for science is light and shadow.
You will be able to identify and name a variety of light sources and understand and describe how the eye sees things.Experiments will be about identifying what happens to light when it is shone on different objects/surfaces and studying shadows and how they are formed.
All children have log -ins for Spelling Shed and the Times Tables Rock Stars. Both are fun, excellent ways for the children to learn spelling and their times tables so please encourage them to play these games at home.
