Class 6 Topics Home Learning

Please can you update the topic section on Class 6 Glusburn website as follows:


This term our new  topic is 'Castles and Kingdoms'. We will be learning all about real castles as well as reading and writing about fictional castles and dragons. We have lots of exciting activities planned incorporated over many areas of the curriculum:


English: we will start our topic by reading the lovely fictional story 'The Egg' and will use this to support our own fictional story writing.


History: we will have our own medieval feast, learn about the features of castles and what it was like to work in a castle.


Geography: we will look at castles near us, well known castles in the British Isles, lands around castles as well as creating and reading maps around castles.


Science: we will be looking at materials used in castles and conducting an investigation to observe changes in materials.


Design & Technology: we plan to design and create dragon scales and shields which we will use in our battle reenactment at the end of term - let's hope that we do not have any casualties!


Why not look at the links below to find out more about castles.
