Summer 1

Year 6 Summer 1 Curriculum Snapshot

β€œAt the beginning of the summer term, we started to learn about the Mayans in our art lessons. By the end of the term, we were learning more in depth information about them. We showed what we had found out through a PowerPoint presentation.

We also carried on with revision for our end of key stage tests – a lot of revision! During the last week of our Easter holidays, while some children were packing for a holiday, many Year 6 children were working in school, for two hours a day, to support them in SATs. It was lots of fun and helped us lots!”
