Summer 1: Travel Peru!

Do YOU have what it takes to be a Tour Guide?

This half-term, Year 6 will be working as Geographers, exploring the world in which we live! To begin with, we will look at our school grounds and Brighton Hill, before branching out to a popular tourist location: Peru. Using our Geographical knowledge, we will describe and compare the physical and human features of both locations. After applying for jobs as tour guides, we will encourage tourists to visit some of the most popular tourist attractions in Peru through persuasive and informative pieces of writing, which will be used in our Manor Field Tour Brochure.

Spring 2: 'Coming at ya, Cleopatra: Ancient Girl Power!'

Last half-term, Year 6 became historians, researching how Ancient Civilisations have impacted on the way that we live our lives today. We were lucky enough to be beginning our project with a trip to the British Museum in London, where we explored the worlds of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks.

From this, we discussed and debated how females - both from the past and modern day - have been depicted as positive and negative role models. Towards the end of the half-term, we studied the harrowing and inspiring story of Rose Blanche.

What legacies have female role models left behind? What would our own legacy be?
