Welcome to Class 13!
Class teacher: Miss Lowes
Teaching Assistant: Miss Menezes
In class 13, we have got off to a brilliant start to Year 6 and are excited about the busy year ahead.
We have already loved working on our class novel, ‘Holes’, and getting to know the characters and setting. We have lots of predictions about the unanswered questions and mysteries later in the book! Over the next few weeks, we will be producing exciting narrative writing about the text, including a story set in the Wild West and based around the character of Kissin’ Kate Barlow!
Our topic links with the setting of ‘Holes’ – the Texas desert – as in our geography work, we will be comparing the features of this area of North America with other parts of the continent.
Our Science work has started based around the topic of ‘Inheritance and Variation.’ So far, we have explored genetic and environmental features within human variation and will go on to look at this with plants and other animals, such as GM crops and selective breeding.
We are loving our Wednesday trampolining session and our PE lessons with Olly, as well as our guitar lessons with Mr I and our weekly French sessions.
