In the Autumn Term we will be becoming ambitious, capable learners as we explore the Age of the Welsh Princes. We will investigate the events that led to the Battle of Hastings and explore historical sources in order to determine what life was like at the time. We will visit Cardiff Castle and take part in Medieval workshops that will give us the opportunity to be 'hands - on' learners. Our project links in with our school pantomime that is inspired by the life of Rhys ap Gruffydd. He was one of the most successful and powerful Welsh princes. He actually held a festival at his castle that is now thought to be the first ever Eisteddfod! The pantomime, though rooted in our Humanities project, is also full of comedy, music, dance and drama! We will have plenty of opportunities to develop the Expressive Arts this term!
As a church school, we particularly enjoy a broad and exciting RE programme. This year, Year 6 will enjoy a set of lessons delivered by a visiting Bible Explorer tutor. We will also learn about the traditions and symbols of the major world religions.
