IPC - Brainwave

Year 6 kicked off the new year with the IPC unit Brainwave. Our learning has been focusing on how we learn. We have focused on the parts of the brain, the different types of learners that there are and how to teach new skills to other people. We have created graphs, written information reports and created our very own brain hats. Take a look below at some of what we have been doing.

IPC - Mysterious Maya

During Autumn 1, the children in Year 6 will be learning about the 'Mysterious Maya' civilisation. As the children progress through the IPC unit, they will learn about the Maya writing system, the number systerm the Maya used and about what gods the Maya worshipped. 

Entry Point 

As part of Entry Point into this unit, the children played the ancient Maya game 'Pok a Tok' and also created hot chocolate Maya style using chilli, vanilla and cinnamon. They also created their own Maya codex using Maya glyphs. They had a fantastic time and it was definitely a memorable moment they will never forget. Below are some pictures of what the children got up to when playing Pok a Tok.

English - Skellig

During this half term Year 6 will be focusing on the Power of Reading text ‘ Skellig'. The text is about a boy called Michael who moves house with his family. His sister is born premature and Michael is struggling to adapt to all the changes that are taken place. He ventures into the garage of his new house and finds a mysterious creature. Why not read the blurb below.

Skellig

When a move to a new house coincides with his baby sister's illness, Michael's world seems suddenly lonely and uncertain.Then, one Sunday afternoon, he stumbles into the old, ramshackle garage of his new home, and finds something magical. A strange creature - part owl, part angel, a being who needs Michael's help if he is to survive. With his new friend Mina, Michael nourishes Skellig back to health, while his baby sister languishes in the hospital. But Skellig is far more than he at first appears, and as he helps Michael breathe life into his tiny sister, Michael's world changes for ever . .
