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 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.
While the rest of the class were on their Young Voices trip, we learnt about Anderson Shelters which were used during World War 2. We learnt about what they were and how they were used before then having some time to build our own model Anderson Shelters and show our knowledge of them.
In Science this term, we've been learning about the Heart and the Circulatory System. After we learnt about the different parts of the heart and its function (and observed a lamb's heart dissection where we were able to get up close and touch the heart!), we've been learning about the components of blood. We learnt about the four different main parts: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma, as well as their functions. To help us remember our learning, we then made blood out of cheerios, red food dye, white marshmallows, pom poms and orange squash!
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.
