P6 have had a great start to the year and have established a class charter based on their rights and responsibilities. They worked together to create newspaper articles about their summer holidays, the Olympics and Paralympics. They also included adverts and pictures and created their own names for the newspapers.
They have also started to research the ancient Aztec and Mayan civilisations and have been extremely interested in different aspects of Aztec society, religion, art and inventions. The class came up with their own questions that they wanted to investigate and the ways they wanted to learn through co-operative learning strategies and these are now displayed on our learning wall. Some of these ideas were great and we now intend to turn an area of the class into an Aztec home, build our own scale model pyramids and design Aztec fashion that we can show of in a fashion show and Aztec ‘auction’. We have decided to hold an Aztec afternoon on Wednesday 10th October and we hope that parents and grandparents can come along to enjoy all our hard work.
The children have been working with their talk partners’ to discuss current events, books and things that interest them, and this is helping them to develop new skills, think about how they learn, and share ideas, opinions and knowledge.
P6X have been enjoying their PE times with Mrs Campbell the PE specialist and will start to work on drama and movement with Mrs Dixon. They have also started to create inspiring artwork with Miss Welsh.
