Grove Park Primary School


Welcome to 6H!


Welcome back to school '5Wow', I still can't quite believe you're all in year 6 already!! I hope you all had an excellent summer and I am sure that we will have another fantastic year together! 


Term 1- Gift of the Nile

This term, we will be looking at Egypt with a focus on the geography of the country. We will be researching how and why the River Nile is so important to the Egyptians and will use this information to create a professional looking PowerPoint. We will be looking at both the physical and human features of Egypt 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. 

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


We also have out class assembly to look forward to on the 16th October! 


Term 2- Awful Egyptians

We've made it to term 2! I'm glad to have seen you all settle into year 6 brilliantly and you have already had a fantastic start to the year. I can't quite believe we are in the Christmas term- we have loads of exciting things to look forward to!

Our main topic continues to be Ancient Egypt but, this term, we will be looking at even more gruesome facts such as mummification! We'll even have a go at 'mummifying' our friends!

We will be carrying out even more exciting experiments and investigations in science where we will be looking at classifying materials- this may get rather messy!!

In D.T this term, we will be designing and making our own Christmas stockings and decorations- just in time for Father Christmas' visit!

P.E will take part on a Friday afternoon this term and we will be playing football with Andy- make sure you bring in warm clothing(or a football kit if desired).

We will also be continuing with our life skills and heading into Sittingbourne Town centre to do a little bit of field work.
