Welcome to Year 6!
Our new topic this half term is Ancient Egypt. We will start by looking at the different Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt before looking at how society was made up, the importance of the River Nile and the discovery of King Tutankhamen.
For reading we will be looking at Holes by Louis Sachar.
Please bring PE kit every Friday.
Homework is to be brought in every Friday.
After school boosters will begin to take place for Maths ahead of SATS later this year.
Mr Bennett and Ms Wells.
Year 6 enjoyed a trip to the brand new library in Doncaster. We were given a tour of the art gallery before moving onto the Museum where we learnt about the history of Doncaster. We particularly enjoyed the KOYLI section, which linked to our topic on the World Wars. We also had a chance to see the trains, which were built in Doncaster. Finally, we had a tour of the children's library, where we listened to some poetry and had a chance to explore the books.
Our first mini project will focus on the Titanic. To contribute to this topic children produced job adverts for people needed for the Titanic, from builders to build the ship to staff needed for the first voyage.
In Science, our new topic is light, where we have been investigating how light enables us to see. We have looked at how light travels in straight lines, as well as how light is reflected when we made periscopes.
Each week, Oak National Academy are celebrating the work of one author virtually. You will be able to read one of their books online, learn more about the author and complete activities relating to that book.

Make sure you read at least 3 times a week and practise your times tables on TT Rockstars!
