Tomb Raiders

This half term the children greatly enjoyed an Ancient Egyptian Murder Mystery, that was provided by the science department from Pakefield High School. This day had a forensic science focus; children had to deduce which suspect murdered the unfortunate pharaoh, and how they did it!

The children have also written a set of comical instructions, teaching the reader how to mummify a dead pharaoh correctly, so that he can successfully reach the afterlife.  

The grand finale of the Tomb Raiders topic was “The British Museum Exhibition of Egyptology”. During this afternoon, children show-cased all of the artefacts and learning from the Tomb Raiders topic. We hope that all the parents and carers who attended this event enjoyed being shown around the museum by your children in role as expert curators.

Finally, the children have created Egyptian season turners, shadufs (a means of transporting Nile water from the river to the fields) and art work in the style of Gustav Klimt.


Adventure is Out There

The summer term curriculum for Year 6 has a strong geography and science focus, and is based around the Disney film “Up!”. The ethos of this topic is the idea that adventure is out there for all to explore.

Children will learn about Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. They will have the opportunity to design an imaginary new species, and will write an explanation text detailing how it the creature is adapted to its environment.

Children will undertake a learning journey from North America to Paradise Falls (loosely based on Angel Falls, Venezuela), and will learn a lot about the two continents that make up the Americas along the way. In ICT we will handle data in order to compare North and South America.

As scientists, we will also learn about animal inheritance, and how characteristics may be passed from parents to offspring with some variations. We will also learn about human reproduction: fertilisation, pregnancy, foetal development and birth.

Two particularly exciting projects to conclude the topic are “Darwin Rocks” – a musical production about Charles Darwin, which will be performed for parents and carers, and a jigsaw showing your child’s top 7 “Must Visit” destinations.
