With Mr Davies, Mrs Lloyd and Miss Ward
Year 6 China Topic
Happy New Year! This term, Year 6 will be studying the unique and intriguing history of China. We will look at everything from the Great Wall of China through to modern day China and its place in the world.
Over the course of the term, children will learn about some of the fascinating emperors from past dynasties and their lasting legacies. One project will see children investigating the terracotta army before creating their own unique sculpture of a warrior. We will also look at the importance of calligraphy in Chinese culture by creating our own scrolls.
In Science, we will look at healthy living and the circulatory system. We will discuss choices that can lead to a healthy lifestyle and the effect this has on our heart and lungs. This will link to exciting PE projects like choreographing a dynamic gymnastics routine and having our own mini 6 Nations during Tag Rugby sessions.
