As part of our Mayan Topic this half term, Year 6 have been making Mayan headrests and example of weaving that were used to make clothes thousands of years ago. The headrests were often worn by kings and symbolised a persons rank in society - often the taller the headrest was the more important the person wearing it was.

The class text will be cosmic - one giant leap for all boy-kind. Science will be covered in unison with our topic work. They will conduct an investigation into what light is and how it travels.
We will learn about the key teaching of Christianity and Christmas. The children will learn about this via the christmas story.
How we can best work together. The children will learn about how a good relationship can help them and what it looks like.
The children have P.E on Wednesday and Thursday. We are lucky to have Bradford City coaching our Thursday P.E session helping to make our pupils future Bantam Superstars!
Homework will link with basic skills in reading, writing and maths. They will receive a short list of spellings that reflect patterns learned that week in class and a short piece of mental maths (such as times tables or conversations). Each week the children will also be assigned a Mathsletics task that links to learning done that week in class. The children may also be expected to complete small research tasks that will supplement any required knowledge for the following week.
During the last day of the half term, Year 6 were given the opportunity to bake chocolate and vanilla cakes. Each of the ingredients was measured out accurately, and then mixed together to create a mixture ready to bake in the oven. Some children were lucky enough to lick the spoons after we were finished! Each of the cakes were then iced and decorated before being devoured at the end of the day...Yum Yum
As part of our learning, we took part in a Police workshop about online safety. A range of issues were discussed including social media and online gaming, which the pupils found particularly interesting.
To celebrate 100% attendance this week, the pupils in Eagles class made chocolate cornflakes buns in the afternoon. We began by melting chocolate and adding it to cornflakes and then made our buns ready to cool. As you can tell, they were delicious! Yum!
