This term, our topic is the Indus Valley Civilisation and India. We will be learning about how they lived, their advancements and making comparisons to life in Britain. We will be investigating historical artefacts to see what we can learn about this newly discovered ancient civilisation.
Year 5/6 News
Each half term, the children will be given a project to complete as homework. This half term, I would like the children to research an area of the Indus Valley that particularly interests them. The homework can be presented in numerous ways: some writing, art work, a diagram/model or as a presentation. The completed project will be presented in class on the last week of each half term.
The children had an unexpected surprise and where really excited when they heard they were going to watch a pantomime - Pinocchio. A fabulous time was had by all including some of the teachers.
Once again, some of our class took part in the Bikeability training. Not only did the children really enjoy it but they learned invaluable skills in order to ride their bikes safely.
