So far this term, Year 6 have been enjoying a variety of English and Maths activities, as well as exploring the other areas of the curriculum. In English, we have been looking at and writing Timeslip Narratives. The children had great fun with this and have written some really good stories using the features of Timeslip Narratives! In Maths, we have been investigating place value and the four operations. Year 6 have really enjoyed the reasoning and problem solving.
Our curriculum topic this half term is Maafa. The children have worked really well so far, finding out about Africa past and present, and also the development of the slave trade. It also explores Britain’s role in the transatlantic slave trade, the causes and consequences of the European colonisation of Africa and the worldwide communities that make up the African diaspora. The children have worked particularly well when showing an understanding of the Triangular Slave Trade and what life was like on the plantations.
