Year 6 - Summer Term

This half term, we are continuing our Ancient Egyptian topic, “Tombraiders!”. We have already greatly enjoyed the topic Super Start, where we had an Internet Treasure Hunt, a presentation challenge and even a Mummy’s Tomb Escape Room experience!

We are currently learning about Gustav Klimt, an artist who was inspired by Egyptology. We have completed an oil pastel study on “The Tree of Life” and we are now learning to collage our own Ancient Egyptian god, using Klimt for inspiration.

Furthermore, we will be creating season turners as we learn about the three-season cycle in Egypt, based on the movements of the River Nile. The mummification process is also serving as a source of fascination to us all and after researching the process (and mummifying a tomato) we may write a set of instructions telling royal embalmers how to mummify a dead pharaoh. We hope to hold a museum exhibition at school in the second half term (date TBC), to showcase all of the work from our Egyptian topic, along with some exciting artefacts.

Of course, we are also preparing for the SAT tests, which begin Monday 9th May and we have also made a positive start to swimming lessons on Tuesday afternoons.
Penultimately, an Egypt-themed home learning challenge will be coming home on Monday 16th May, with almost month to complete this. The work from the challenge can feature in the museum exhibition in the second half term.

Finally, we will be sending home playscripts over the May half term holiday, so that the children can read our summer musical “We’ll Meet Again” and begin to think about the roles they would like to audition for.
