Hello and welcome to Class 6TL, the home of Leach's Lions. This year we have been extremely busy looking at a range of different topics in IPC, including: AD 900, in which we deepened our historical understanding of two non-European civilizations, the Mayans and the kingdom of Benin and our most recent topic, Space. Currently, we are all working hard to ensure we are ready and prepared for our SATs exams which are no more than a few weeks away.
