In Year 6 we are nearing the end of our unit on the Maya civilisation. Throughout this unit the children have learnt about the Maya creation story, made a Maya calendar, written their own adaptation of a Maya story and learnt about the writing and number systems that the Maya used. In art this half term we have been ‘making our voice heard’ by creating some pieces of work based on emotions by Kathe Kollwitz and designing our own ‘Covid inspired’ Guernica by Pablo Picasso. During computing we have been learning about binary code and how it is made using switches and we have learnt how to count in binary. As we near the end of the year, we start our new literacy unit titled ‘Looking back’. The children will be writing their own reflective piece looking back at some of their standout memories through the course of their primary school journey. Tissues at the ready!
