Welcome to Class CC

Mrs Champney

What are we learning this term?

This half term we will be studying the topic, ‘Saundersfoot’, where we will be learning all about Wales in preparation for our residential trip. Within Science we will begin looking at evolution and how some animals and plants  have adapted to suit their environment. In particular birds and creatures that can be found on the coast. We will be using scratch in computing where we will learn how to write basic coding. Hopefully by the end of the half term the children would have designed and written their own programmes for basic games that can be played with a friend. Keeping to the coastal topic, we will paint landscapes in art. Using watercolour techniques to create coastal pictures we will then compare these to differing landscapes.

During the second half of the Spring Half Term we were studying the topic ‘Namaste’, where we learnt all about life in India and heard different stories and beliefs from Hinduism. In science   we learnt what micro-organisms are and what they are used for. After that we  understood what happens when we make different types of bread. 

We started 2017 learning all about Tudors and also studying some of Shakespeare's works. The children were also looking at their own identity and produced some art to reflect this. Alongside their topic, they continued to work hard in preparation for their SATs. 

In the second half term our topic 'Space invaders' was fun, exciting and out of this world! The children worked really hard on their production of 'The Amazing Adventures of Superstan' and put on a show that was simply staggering. 

In the first half term we got to know each other whilst we settled into year 6 and all successfully became prefects. Our topic was World War II. Throughout this topic we looked at life in Britain, alongside learning about the war, how it started, who was involved and what were some of the consequences. We took a trip to Duxford and took part in a sleepover in early preparation for Saundersfoot.
