Year 6 - Leonardo DaVinci Class
Year Six is named after the multi-talented genius Leonardo Da Vinci. Many people will be familiar with his famous artworks, The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, but he was also an incredibly foresighted scientist whose studies into the human anatomy changed the course of medical science and contributed to the understanding of how the body works. He was also a keen mathematician, philosopher and inventor who,through his journals and artwork, has given so much to furthering the knowledge in so many areas of the humanities. He worked on scientific investigations that helped to invent many of the pivotal creations of the modern world, including the flying machine, helicopter, bicycle and parachute - a worthy namesake for year 6!
In IPC this term year 6 will be studying the topic of 'The Holiday Show'. We will be finding out about the impact that our choice of holiday and travel destination can have on the human and physical environment.
This topic allows for cross curricular learning; in Geography we will be researching a local tourist attraction and tourist hot spots around the world and their impact on regions, countries and cultures. In History we will create a history tour of our local area using IT devices.
We are currently creating presentations for Ms Scrase to observe and decide where her next 'City Break' could be!
This topic has a fun, interesting theme which will widen the children's views about the bigger picture of tourism as a global phenomenon.
