Welcome to Hawks!
Miss Hall, Class Teacher
Welcome to Hawks Class 2017/18
As always, children joining Hawks class are looking forward to a busy but rewarding year. From the very start of the academic year, some Year 6 will be sitting the 11+ and applying for places for Secondary School. If anyone requires any help or clarification with the Secondary School admissions process then please drop into school and see Mrs Rowitt, myself or Mr Allen.
All children in Hawks have much to look forward to this year starting with the Autumn Term when our topic is Greece in Term 1 and evolution and inheritance in Term 2. Children will compare Greece with England before learning about Ancient Greece and the lifestyle and beliefs of people living in this era. Later in the term we will learn about Darwin and his theory of evolution. In this term, Hawks will also be inviting parents in to school for our parent collective worship (date to be confirmed).
In Spring Term in Hawks, children will be busy preparing for their SATs tests. This gives the children a chance to show off their skills and knowledge that have been acquired during their time at primary school. The efforts of the children will cumulate in a FREE day out later in the year. I have every confidence the children in Hawks this year will be worthy of a reward after showing dedication and hard work throughout the year!
Our topics this term will be Space and the Stone Age. We are hoping to have a Planetarium in school for our space topic. This will allow the children to learn about and experience our solar system. In the past, the planetarium has been a firm favourite with children.
During the Summer Term the children will be swimming, competing in sports day and practising hard for the end of year production and Leavers Service.
Our first topic in the summer term will be science based linked to light and shadows. Later in the term, geography will be the focus and we will be making a study of a given town or city. The topic will be linked to the World Cup with children trying to decide which place produces the best football team (or individual player). I’m sure there will be a lot of debate and discussion about this topic!
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.
