Spring Term 2021

This term, our topic in year 6 is ‘The Ancient Maya’ and we will be learning all about this fascinating group of people. We will look at the food they ate, the religion they followed, the temples they built and their important link to chocolate! In Science, we will be looking at Animals, including Humans. In this topic we will be looking at the circulatory system, the digestive system and everything else that makes our bodies work.
