Redwood Year 6

Welcome to Redwood Class
In Redwood this term, we are taking a trip to the wonderful and colourful country of Mexico where we will learn about their culture, traditions and events. We will be celebrating 'The Day of the Dead'tradition, whilst learning about its significance. We will also be taking a trip back in time to discover ancient civilisation in Mexico with the Mayans and what they brought to the country. 
                                                A snapshot of our learning this term:
Traditional Mexican food will be the focus in DT this term where we will practise our cooking skills to design and then make our very own enchiladas, guacamole and salsa. 
In Art we will be learning about famous Mexican artists where we will have the opportunity to look at their artwork and use different styles from the artists to create our own masterpiece.
The Mayans will be our focus during our history lessons where we will: learn their number and alphabetical systems, order key events in chronological order and record where they settled and travelled using maps to record this information.
In Science we will be learning about evolution and inheritance by carrying out a range of investigations , including Charles Darwin's famous 'Bird Beak' experiment. We will also become archaeologists as we identify and find our own fossils. 
Also, in Music, we will be practicing a range of songs for the Young Voices concert.
