Class 6 (Year 5/6)

Welcome to Class 6. Our teacher is Mrs Marsden and our teaching assistant is Mrs Froggatt. This term Class 6's theme is 'Tell Me Your Story'.  We will explore the stories of the Victorians and we will visit York Castle Museum to learn more about life during the reign of Queen Victoria.  In Science we are exploring life cycles and will enjoy using the i-Pads to create our own life-cycle videos. Justice and Freedom is our key theme in R.E. and the children will explore what this means to different faith groups, how it linked to our Victorian studies and how the issues it raises permeate throughout life in modern day Britain.

After half term we will move onto light and this will link further to our class theme when we learn about the invention of the light bulb. We will also start to explore the wonders of our 'Extreme Earth', learning about the physical Geography of volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis, whilst also appreciating the human impact such events can have.
It will be a busy and exciting term of learning in Class 6!
