Year 6 - Miss Lander & Mrs Wilkinson

In Class 6, we have chosen “Greek Gastronomy” as our first topic this year.

We really enjoyed creating our own catering companies as our hook on the first day. We all learnt a lot about food hygiene, took part in food server hospitality training and even sampled some Greek delicacies! This will all prove important when we turn the hall into a “top-notch” Greek restaurant with a three course meal for our parents in our end goal.  

Our Topic lessons will see us investigating Ancient Greece and the legacy that the Greeks left behind in History, looking at cultural cooking in D&T and studying migration across the globe in Geography. We will also use our fantastic class restaurant role play area during these lessons for independent study time. In here, pupils will create continue to develop their catering and hospitality skills by making adverts, training videos and designing menus and invitations.

In Literacy and Guided Reading sessions we will be reading ‘Sweet Pizza’ by G. R. Gemin and will use this as inspiration for some of our own writing whilst making some intertextual links with some other books with similar themes.

Our Dance and Music lessons will see us creating some traditional Greek pieces.

In Art we are going to be finding out about Ancient Greek pottery and will be learning how to make our own using paper and paste techniques.

All of this will coincide with our usual Maths, Computing, French and PE learning.

Our PE days are Monday (Games) and Friday (Dance).

Our class library day will be on Fridays.
