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!

This term our topic is 'Behind the Bookcase' as part of this topic we will be learning all about World War 2. In History, as well as looking at the timeline of key events during the war, we will learn about the impact that Britain and the War had on the rest of the world as well as what Britain has learnt from the war and how it has shaped our country. We will pay particular focus to Ann Frank and her life story. The children will be looking at extracts of her diary and using this to write their own diaries from the perspective of a child during the war. 

In Geography, and linking with out topic, we will be looking at mapping skills and using this to identify the countries that we invaded during the war. 

In English we will be looking at the features of a biography and learning all of the skills required to write our own. Moving on from this will be learning about different narrative techniques that an author can use to engage the reader and move a story on. We will then use the skills that we have learnt to write our own stories. In addition to this, we will be continuing to recap all of KS2 Grammar. 

In Computing and linking with our topic, we will be learning about the invention of the Colossus and the code breaking that helped us win the war. As well as this we will be learning how to code using the drones.

In D&T we will be learning about 'Make and Mend', ultimately designing and sewing our own items. As we learn about rationing we will be looking at recipes, making our own soup and stews.
