Edenfield C of E Primary School

Class 6

Hello and welcome to Class 6!

Mr Holt is our teacher along with our teaching assistant Mrs Higgins.

Spring Term

This spring term, our theme is ‘Heroes and Villains’. Within our English lessons, we have already begun enjoying ‘Macbeth’ by William Shakespeare. As this is one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, we will also be comparing the play to some of his other works including ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘The Taming of the Shrew.’ Our written outcome will be to retell the story of Macbeth providing an alternative ending. In addition to this, on Friday 27th March, Class 6 will be visiting The Shakespeare House in Stratford-upon-Avon where we will be performing another one of Shakespeare’s famous plays ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream.’

In science, we will be learning about the human body. Children will be provided with lots of opportunities to research and investigate how the human body works including what happens inside our bodies; how our hearts and lungs work, researching the circulatory system, and highlighting the negative effects of alcohol, drugs, tobacco and lack of exercise on the body.

In history, will be studying life and society in Tudor times. This will include looking at the different monarchs in this era and researching what life was like for people throughout the period.

Also, in art, we will be exploring the works of Picasso and Rembrandt in preparation for creating and painting self-portraits using the crosshatch skill. Children have already been practising drawing line portraits in preparation for this!

Autumn Term

Our termly letter for the autumn term can be found at the bottom of this page. Please have a look if you would like to know more about what we are studying this term.

As we are in Year 6, we have many responsibilities in school which we approach with a mature, professional attitude. Our responsibilities include:

* Setting up the laptop and music for worship

* Laying out the furniture in the hall for worship

* Collecting and totalling house points each week as house captains and vice captains

* Looking after our buddies in Class Reception

* Assisting with wet play provision in KS1 and Class reception

* Assisting the kitchen staff in tidying up the dining room after lunch

* Supporting teachers during achievement assembly by issuing ‘Star of the Week’ stickers and taking minutes

This autumn term our theme is ‘Survival’. Within our English lessons, we have already begun enjoying ‘Running Wild’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be comparing this book to other classics such as ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘The Jungle Book.’ Eventually, we will use these books to help us to write our own survival stories. In science, we have started to look at how different animals survive in different environments, especially over winter when environments can change dramatically. We have had to design our own species with specific adaptations to survive in a given environment. Following on from this, we will be learning about inheritance and natural selection. We will also be conducting our own research all about Charles Darwin and Mary Anning, and their theories of evolution. To support our learning in this theme, we shall be visiting Brockholes Nature Reserve on Thursday 10th October to take part in a range of survival and bush craft outdoor activities.

In a few weeks’ time, we will begin to learn about World War 1 and World War 2 in the run up to Remembrance Day. We are really looking forward to leading the church Remembrance Service and understanding more about life during this difficult time in recent history.

Don’t forget to check our class page again soon to see some photos from our trip and to find out what else we have been up to in Class 6!

On Thursday 10th October, Class 6 visited Brockholes Nature Reserve as part of our theme ‘Survival.’ We enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities including developing our survival skills which involved using a flint to make a fire, den building and learning about camouflage. We also took part in various bush craft games in the woodland which was a fantastic end to a very memorable day!
