Inspiring the future



Year 6

Mr O'Mahoney

Welcome to the Hogwarts Class

This term our topic is "What did the Mayan's do for us?"

We will learn how this extraordinary civilisation created beautiful writing using logograms and hieroglyphs. We will discover the fascinating inventive maths and calendar systems of the Maya in our challenging and intriguing sessions about The Maya calendar; learn about the Maya numerals and  their maths system. We will study the everyday life of the people including what they ate! 

Our science focus for the term is "Forces." We will be learning about gravity, opposing forces and air and water resistance.


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.


Your child has been given a new homework menu which contains a variety of homework tasks for them to complete in their own time. 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.
