Welcome to Class 6
Your class teacher is Miss Wood. Mrs Shaw and Mrs Leese are our teaching assistants.
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.
Charlie and Emily are our Head pupils
Millie and George are our deputies
The topics this year are Water, World War I and II, Ancient Greece and Production.
In science we will be learning about living things and their habitats; materials and their properties; evolution and inheritance; and the human body.
as part of British Science Week we've helped build hedgehog habitats at Keele cemetery and have built bird boxes for the school grounds.
Today we had an Ancient Greek day to start our new topic with a WOW.
We all dressed up and enjoyed drama, learning about how the Greek Empire formed and puzzling with Archimedes Stomachion. In the afternoon we tasted Greek foods and learned about the Greek Gods and goddesses.
Thank you to Cossie's mum who provided us with some authentic Greek foods to try.
thanks to all the parents who came today to see what the children have been learning as part of their topic. We hope you enjoyed it, class 6
we have been learning about the poem Dulce et decorum est. Today we had a first go at performing it.
Afer our visit to the farm, we used rationing recipes to cook with. We enjoyed our trench stew, bread and carrot cake.
We even got to use beef and eggs from the farm
This week, we started our World Wars topic with a visit to Park Hill Farm. Thank you to Farmer John and Farmer Pat for giving us a fantastic experience as evacuees.
We learned all about life on the farm and the roles children would have played on a working farm. Farmer Pat took us on a tour of the farm and we imagined how evacuee children would have passed the time.
We had a session on rationing. It was surprising to see how little meat people were given and portion sizes were a lot smaller than the lunches we went on to eat.
Back at school, we will be completing some farmer's maths using imperial measures and writing home in the role of evacuees.
Thank you to all the children for learning souch and doing us proud with exemplary behaviour
Today we've been to Keele lakes as part of our water topic, we also linked to living things and their habitats in science. We had a great time: seeing carp, ducks and the evidence of treecreepers. The terrapin didn't make an appearance though. Thank you to Sarah Taylor from the university for arranging a great day.
