Year 6 – March

The children in year 6 have had a very busy March!

Throughout March, the children have started to learn about Ancient Egypt.

We discussed and compared our knowledge about ancient civilisations (from previous learning) and what we know about the Ancient Egyptian civilisation. After researching The Nile, we wrote a comparative report about The Nile during Ancient Egyptian times and now. Furthermore, we researched Tutankhamun and Howard Carter using primary and secondary sources in preparation for the children’s diary recount, written in first person as if they were Howard Carter.

The children also enjoyed the ‘Junk Percussion Workshop’, where they experienced different rhythms on a variety of junk instruments. The children performed ‘We Will Rock You’ using these different rhythms.
