Welcome to Hawthorn - Year 6!
Welcome to Hawthorn Class! Our class teacher is Miss Yeates who loves pandas, reading and Harry Potter. We're very lucky to have Mrs Davidson working as our brilliant teaching assistant.
Our P.E. days are on Monday and Thursday although we ask that children bring their P.E. kits to school every day.
This term, the children will have a topic project to complete alongside their weekly Maths and Spellings homework. They will also be expected to read regularly and complete a book review once they have finished a book.
We have lots of exciting topics coming up this year including our Victorian "Industry, Invention and Imperialism" topic, our World War 2 "Hurricanes and Spitfires" topic and our Ancient Greece "Glorious Greece" topic.
On this page, you will find details of our termly topics, useful websites and class information as well as photos of what we have been doing in school recently.
This is a copy of our weekly timetable. Please note that some weeks will be different.
We were lucky enough to be invited to Wallingford Secondary School for a sports morning. The children took part in a carousel of activities including trampolining, the climbing wall, circuit training and a dance session. As well as being a fun morning, it was a great opportunity for children who are interested in attending Wallingford next year as it allowed them to experience some of the facilities and get to know some of the PE staff.
We hope that you enjoyed the PGL assembly. The children had designed it themselves and chosen what they would like to share with you. Unfortunately, I am unable to upload the PowerPoint to the website. Instead, I have shared a selection of photos from the PowerPoint.
Our topic this term is on the rainforest and we've been learning more about the Amazon rainforest which is the setting in the book we're reading: The Explorer. We used topographical maps of South America to create our own 3D maps out of plasticine. Our maps show the Amazon rainforest, the Amazon river and the Andes mountain range.
