Year 6 - Miss Lander & Mrs Wilkinson

In year 6, our latest topic is Mystical Mayans.

We have really enjoyed our new book, Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull. We have also started watching the movie to compare its events and see what we have been reading. As we do with every topic, our class has designed a Mayan-themed role play. The role play gives the children an opportunity to become archaeologists and discover ancient Mayan pottery. We spent many enjoyable lessons crafting our pots. We later placed our finished pots into a sand pit accompanied by tools to help recover the pots. During role play an archaeologist could dig for pots, then fill in a sheet estimating when the pot was made and what the design engraved into it was.

Our current literacy lessons involve writing a gothic story about a human which has had a past trauma. 

We are all looking forward to our Leavers BBQ and Assembly!
