Welcome to Class CC

Mrs Champney

What are we learning this term?

In our first half term we were getting to know all abut each other whilst we settled in to Year 6 and we all successfully became prefects. Our topic last term was 'Space Invaders' and we were looking forward to the challenge of sending a teddy bear into Space! Alongside this we were looking at forces in science and the history of space travel. We were appreciating Holst's The Planet Suite and looked at Humanism, The Big Bang Theory and The Creation Story. Within English we created Non-Chronological Reports and studied visual Literacy using film clips as a stimulus. We had a busy and exciting half term.


The second half of the autumn term saw us  we completing the topic Shakespeare's School of Rock. We were looking at the significant events during the Tudor period and recognising differences between this time and today as well appreciating how the language created by shakespeare is evident in everyday language today. We  looked at Tudor theatre and in English studied some of Shakespeare's works. The children also looked at their own identity and produced some art to reflect this as well as studying portraiture. Finally our Christmas Upper School Production  ran alongside our studies where we   presented Disney's Peter Pan as our final product. We can't wait for our next topic to begin in the Arne year. Have a lovely Christmas holiday.

In January we will begin our topic, "'Behind the bookcase', a study on World War 2. Throughout this topic we will look at life in Britain during this time and how and why war started and the consequences as a History focus.  Whilst In Geography we will look at the countries involved. Our RE focus is Judaism. We will read the diary of Anne Frank as well as read fiction based on war time. We hope to take a trip to Duxford to the Imperial War Museum and hopefully create some Blitz art, 'ration book' baking and 'make do and mend' sewing.
