Welcome to 6D!


Term 1 - Gift of the Nile

Welcome back everyone and welcome to year 6! We hope you had a wonderful summer and we hope you are just as excited as we are to get going with the year ahead of us!


So, what are we learning this term?


Our topic this term is called Gift of the Nile, as we are going to be looking at Egypt with a focus on the River Nile. We will be researching how and why the River Nile is so important to the Egyptians and using our research in a professional looking PowerPoint. We will also be looking at the geography of Egypt, including the physical and human features and how it has changed since the Ancient Egyptians roamed the land. 


In science we will be looking at light and sound and creating our investigations. We may even get to use our new data loggers!


In art we will be creating our own batik using wax and we will be using the Ancient Egyptians as inspiration. 


In P.E we will be practising our rugby skills and in inside PE we will be doing some fitness circuits!


BUT...the most exciting thing to look forward to is our class assembly. Once again, Ancient Egypt will be our inspiration but I won't give away too much just yet!


Remember to have your PE kit in school at all times and homework is due in on Monday and Friday.
