Welcome to Year 6!
Firstly, I am writing to you to introduce myself as your child’s new class teacher. I will be teaching all morning sessions and afternoons on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Mrs Walmsley will teach topic work on the other afternoons. Mr Parkinson will support the class at different times throughout the week.
Year 6 is an important year in your child’s education and it is important that school and home work in close partnership. Therefore, I have outlined below what we will be doing this term:
We will be looking at the Maya civilization. The Maya loved their chocolate so we can cover lots of topics such as geography, art, DT, science, French, and history. There will be plenty of opportunities for the children to have exciting lessons which will involve going outside and investigating how the Maya lived and what happened when the Spanish invaded.
