Welcome to Class 6
Your class teacher is Miss Wood. Mrs Shaw is our teaching assistant.
We are looking forward to having lots of fun this year with great topics for learning, exciting trips and lots of responsibilities to prepare us for high school.
We are looking forward to being buddies and our end of year residential visit to Standon Bowers.
Spring Term is already here!
After a super first term in year 6 we are ready for our next challenge. The term will begin with a fortnight topic THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. We are really looking forward to watching this at the New Vic.
After that our topic will be Ice and Fire. This term we will be going on a trip to Conkers to share our learning and will be doing lots of scientific studies.
We celebrated 100 years since the end of WW1. Our thoughts and prayers have been directed towards this sensitive topic and Lest We Forget, we are the generation who will not allow this to happen again.
We have written poetry, learned about The Christmas Truce, listened to War Horse and created WW1 trench models.
Our topic for the first half of the Autumn term is: "Healthy Human Body."
To kick off the topic, we visited Keele Medical School, where we learned how to test urine for diabetes and how it effects the body. Dr. McBain and Dr. Cope showed us how to measure our pulse rate using an oximeter, so that we could compare our pulse rates before and after exercising. We used this information to work out our stroke/volume and cardiac output. We all had a great afternoon.
The topics this year are the Healthy Human Body, Buildings, Evolution, Ice and Fire, Newcastle-under-Lyme and the Performance.
