Welcome to Hawks!
Miss Hall, Class Teacher
Welcome to Hawk’s class 2016/17. We have some great topics this year, beginning in the Autumn Term with Ancient Greeks. In science, we will be studying Animals (Including Humans) and later in the term, Electricity which will be based around the book Robots Go Wild. We are planning for an educational visit to The Collection to enhance the children’s learning. In IT, the children will be beginning to look at E safety and how to stay safe when using the Internet. This will be a theme that is continued throughout the year.
In the Spring Term our main history/geography topic will be Romans and Celts. There is a lot of local Roman history in Lincoln which the children will study. Our science unit for the Spring Term will be Living Things and Habitats; we will be finding out if it is possible to live inside a volcano (based on Mount Vesuvius to link with our Roman topic). Our educational visit will be to a nature reserve where the children will be able to observe some of the insects and creatures in their natural habitats.
During the Summer Term we will be going further back in history to study life in the Stone Age. This will be based around stories such as Ug the Stone Age Genius. We will also be studying the different structures located in Bailgate, Lincoln where there is evidence of a range of eras, including: Norman, Tudor, Roman and Victorian. We will be visiting Lincoln with a historian as a guide and the children will also have the opportunity to explore Lincoln Cathedral. Our science topic in the Summer Term will be States of Matter and Sound.
We are also looking forward to cooking this year, which will begin with making bread for the school harvest festival. Throughout the year we will be growing our own herbs and some vegetables to use in our cooking. This is part of the new curriculum helping children make the right choices and experiencing new food.
I am anticipating a busy but very enjoyable year and hope the children find the topics fun and informative, learning many facts that will inspire them.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact me via school reception.
