Welcome to Class JG


Miss Greenstead

Miss Greensted is a Year 6 teacher and the Computing subject leader. Outside of school she enjoys taking part in sporting events, spending time with her family and going to the theatre. 

Come and say hello to Miss Greensted at the end of the day!

In our first half term we were getting to know all about 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 learnt about the features and created our own Non-Chronological Reports, structured poetry as well as learning different narrative techniques. 

This term our topic is Shakespeare's School of Rock. Linking with this we will be looking at the significant events during the Tudor period. We will learn about the differences and similarities between our lives today and during the Tudor era. In addition to this we will explore and become familar with the language created by Shakespeare and how it is evident in everyday language today. We will look at Tudor Theatre and in English study some of Shakespeare's works, focusing in particular on the adpated story and play of Romeo and Juliet.

In computing, as well as further developing our understandning of how to be safe online,  we will continue to learn how to code. Last half term we created a solar system on Scratch. This half term we will continue to learn how to code by creating music on Garage Band. 

In Art we will be learning about portrait drawing and drawing our own portraits, as part of this the children will also look at their own identity. In addition to this we will be rehearsing and working towards our Christmas Production of 'Peter Pan'. We are looking forward to performing this to you in December.
