Hogwarts

 

Year 6

Mr O'Mahoney

Welcome to the Hogwarts Class

Spring Term (3) "What did the Mayans do for us?"

Here at Caythorpe we have developed an Enquiry based curriculum. Each of our termly topics is based on a question. This term we will explore the question "What did the Mayans do for us?" This topic incorporates the subjects of geography and history. We will explore the Maya civilisation and their religious beliefs. We will also discover the Maya number system and Maya writing.

The English curriculum will be taught through a topic approach wherever possible.

In science we will be investigating forces including, weight and mass, opposing forces, water and air resistance. Children will use their knowledge to design and test a parachute.

We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed syllabus for RE. 

PE

Please can your child keep a named PE kit in school all week (dark shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.) If the weather is fine, PE may take place outdoors so please make sure your child has an outdoor kit. Please can you also ensure that all items of school clothing are named to prevent any mix-ups at the end of the day.

Being able to swim is a vital life skill. All children are expected to be able to swim at least 25m using a range of swimming stokes effectively. If children are still unable to complete this length then they will have the opportunity to continue swimming sessions in Year 6.

Homework

Your child has been given a new homework menu which contains a variety of homework tasks for them to complete in their own time. (A copy can be downloaded below). Each task has an allocated number of points with the aim being for each child to reach 25 points by the end of the half term. This will be checked every Friday afternoon.
