13.7.17 Science

Year 6 Summer Term 2

Ancient Greece. 


Week commencing: 10th July 2017


This term the children are going to learn about Ancient Greece. We are going to start by watching the film Hercules, creating a story map and then writing our own version. The following week we will link of Literacy to the Olympics and we will write a biography about a famous athlete.


Throughout our theme the children will explore the following:

* Who were the Ancient Greeks?

*Ancient Greek Democracy

* Ancient Greek Olympics

*The Battle of Marathon

*The Trojan War

*Greek Gods and Goddesses.


This terms science is a biology unit all about the human body. The children will learn about the different parts and functions of the circulatory system and understand how water and nutrients are transported. They will also learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle before completing an exercise investigation. 


PE will include practising for sports day, Wimbledon, Outdoor and Adventurous activity and Rounders. Hopefully the weather will stay fine and we will be able to make the most of it. Please make sure all PE kits are in school on a Monday and as the weather is ever changeable have outdoor kits, hats and sun cream just in case. Better to be safe than sorry!


With a busy term ahead keep checking our photo library for evidence of this terms work. 


Any problems do not hesitate to contact any member of the Year 6 team.
