Welcome to Year 6!
Autumn Term 2017
We hope you have had a fantastic Summer break - it is great to see the children returning to school, eager to learn for their last year at Heymann Primary School.
This is set to be a jam-packed first term at school, with practice SATs in the week beginning 11th September, followed by our residential at PGL Liddington as a treat for all that hard work!
Our topic for this term is 'The Magical Maya' (see the context for learning below). This provides a super opportunity for us to visit Cadbury World as the wonderful Maya were responsible for the discovery of the cocoa bean. Our historical learning will be advanced by learning all about life in Central America and how the Mayan civilisation become so well-established before they mysteriously disappeared.
Alongside Ms Nash, Mrs Marriott and Miss Bussey, our Year 6 team includes: Mrs Bielecka, Mr Hill, and Mrs Bonsai.
Please see our context for learning map below to find out more about what we will be covering and to help support your child's learning.
