Hola Mexico! - Summer 2

In this section...

We say 'Hola Mexico' during this half term we where look closely at the 'Mayan' civilisation in History, learning about how artefacts help us to know about their society, daily life, religion and beliefs. We look at the major achievements of the Mayans and the reasons behind their decline. We link our Geography to this learning where we study 'Rainforests', their vegetation, climate, and the people and settlements of the rainforests. We look at the human and environmental impact on the rainforests and what measures we are taking and need to take to preserve them. In Art we look at line, pattern, shape and colour to create textured Mayan inspired prints. 

Our Music genre this half term is 'Western Classical Music' and we also prepare for our end of year performance.

In Relationships Education we look at puberty, conception and birth as well as the law and marriage. 

'Changes' is the PHSE theme this half term which helps to prepare us for secondary transition. We look at responsibilities in Citizenship, as well as economic choices, interest, loan, debt and tax. We look at the risks of substances and the effects these can have.

We explore Sikhism in RE and the importance of the 5Ks, linking this to identity. We also find out about the importance of prayer for Sikhs. 

PE comprises of Athletics and Cricket and in Computing we look at networks and how these work. We have a go at making our own digital pathway!
