Term 1 – Year 6 have had a fantastic start to the year and are taking all their new responsibilities in their stride. We are writing our Rags to Riches stories based in the ancient Kingdom of Benin and are using some great descriptive vocabulary and grammatical features which are making them really come alive. Benin is a fascinating topic and the children are enjoying finding out interesting facts, such as how Benin became so powerful and the fact that they built an earthen moat which is four times longer than the Great Wall of China.
We have been overhead in the playground discussing ‘creationism versus science’ and are really engaging with this idea by looking at primary and secondary sources, including Genesis 1, and listening to the views of others.
Skipping, singing, tag rugby and building electrical circuits are some of the exciting things we have been involved in.
